I had to make my first 'road trip' in my new to me 2011 ranger (4.0 V6) this past Monday. While passing a couple of slow trucks on a two lane road I looked at the speedo when I felt the front end getting a little light and was shocked I was doing 100MPH! My old Toyota with the 3.0V6 would have struggled to get to 100.

But either the 4 banger Ranger of the era or the DeLorean are both more exciting prospects than the time machine built from a refrigerator that was the original idea.
Something tells me this thread isn't the place for any attempt at "logic".....
