Welcome to FRF. Post up some pictures of the truck. Make a Sig of your specs to help people out when giving advice. Taken care of right they will last for a long time

Welcome! Sounds like you gained a great deal in fuel economy. Congrats on becoming a new Ranger owner! As stated above, if you take good care of the engine it should last quite a while. Many rangers I've heard of have lasted to 225k+.
