So did I when i got my truck and you wouldn't believe the things you can do yourself and how easy it is! I even learned some body work!! It's a great forum and make sure you look at the "how to's" awesome mods and code reads for simple fixes!

i beg to differ, refer to your other thread here: http://www.fordrangerforum.com/gener...-take-off.html

besides coming to your house and fixing it for you im not sure how else to help you. had you done as i suggested and did a search using the keywords listed in the section i pointed out you would have found alot of info about your drivetrain thump as well as suggestions on how to fix it.

Also there's a command bar below the banner that has a "My Post" command.

I have a 4.0. It's one of the motors that come in Rangers. Make sure it never runs out of oil and stuff and it'll be a good engine. They all have their good points. Hope that helps.
