Well, I'm also in Florida ... so climatology shouldn't be a factor, but I do have a 4.0L V6 instead of the 3.0L.

Right now, my Ranger is going 0 mph, out in the parking lot. I'll be getting off work at around 6:00, and I can take it up to 60 on the way home, so figure a ballpark estimate of "under 2 hours and 10 minutes"

Takes my 3.0 15 or so seconds to 0-60 with normal 2500RPM acceleration on a flat terrain. If Im going downhill and red line it, I might be able to make 6 seconds, lol.

I think mine is 8.9 seconds on flat ground with OD off. they call it a 3.slo for a good reason.

my 2.5 5 speed probably takes 12 seconds. If I want speed, Ill hop in the car which does it in just over 6 seconds.

I believe the "official" number for a 3.0 5-spd is 8 seconds.

yeah the 3.0 makes ok low end toque but with a auto it BLOWS my 2.3 would smoke a 3l auto and maybe a 3l exended cab with 4x4 with a 5 speed. my truck is probaly 600 lbs lighter

I got a little single cab with a short bed, if i had a manual I'd be well in the low 8 second mark for sure. It seems to be making the most power in the mid rpm range..
