And the only way to get the 4.0 is either the Sport Edition or the FX4. The interior hasn't changed either. Plus out of all the rangers I've looked at, I have to see a manual tranny too. The eblems changed too.




Nice man very nice. How about some specs?
You can get a XLT with a 4.0, but it has to be an extented cab.
The emblems changed in 2006

Yeah, the back 9" Ford emblem that goes in the center of the tailgate goes into 3 alignment holes.
If you plan on selling the emblem in the ceter of the tailgate let me know, I need to replace a defective 2006 grille emblem.

I believe the taillights are different too, the entire lens are transparent, you can actually see the bulb through the lense. I think the steering wheel is a slightly different shape on the 2011 than the 2010 the horn cover or airbag cover is more square shaped than rounded off. Also not sure when Ford added traction control as standard, but my 2011 has it. I don’t recall seeing this feature on 2010 models? I also think the reason for the rear disc brakes was due to the addition of traction control? The computer uses fuel/cut and or brake pressure applied to a spinning rear wheel to regain traction, Hard to do with a drum set up effectively.
I also think my XLT has side air bags in the seats? I will look in the morning and confirm this. The front air dam on the XL, XLT might be a new shape too? At least for '10 & ‘11’s???
Also are the silver trim thingy that surrounds the radio & HAVC a new color? I looked at a few older Rangers before I got my 2011 that seemed to have a black painted one? I also forgot about the passenger airbag detection and the ipod jack in the cubby.

A few questions on things they got rid of though?
I’m not a Ranger guru like most of you, but I do love my Ranger. Anyway I noticed the third brake light doesn’t have a cargo light anymore on the 2011 WTF?
I think Ford dropped the reg/cab Long bed option for 2011, I know this because I tried to build one on the Ford website before I got my truck and the only option was reg cab short box or supercab. I would have rather had a regcab long bed over the almost useless non four door supercab. At least I could have put a nice sized tool box in and still had a standard bed left.
2011’s XLT’s 2wd’s don’t have mud guards anymore, just some stick-on plastic trim at the lower portion of the fender and bed side to protect against rocks. Personally I liked the mudguards on the older Rangers.

Nice truck they came out with the traction control in 2010 it's also got anti roll and stability control I've got a 2010 FX4 does yours have the magic button? Press and hold for five sec and have fun your truck won't run like a fat lady in flip flops lol (when you spin or rear end slides out)
