Congrats ... Since you had a 2004 like me, I'd like to know how many changes Ford made to the Ranger in 7 years.

One major improvement is 4 wheel disk brakes. I am impressed by how much better the braking feels compared to my old '99 XLT with drum brakes.
Two other improvements I've noticed are:
  • seats feel firmer and more roomy. Adjustable headrests too.
  • The 4.0 OHC is smoother and quieter than the 4.0 OHV that was in the '99. It always had a rattling noise like a diesel engine which sounded bad. Never had any issues with it though.

None really. They got rid of the 3.0 and all of their OHV motors. Now you only have 2 engine choices. The 2.3 I4 16V DOHC, or the 4.0 SOHC. 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.

I wonder what that new engine sounds like myself. I haven't heard one of them yet.

I'd love to have a 2011 Ranger. Get a 2.3 single cab short box manual trans and lower it and such. Would make a great DD work truck.
