That I got stuck in ~2" of snow even with studded snows on the back. Took me a good 5 minutes to get out. Finally got out by rocking back and forward in reverse(drop clutch and half throttle, full clutch and let the wheels ride up the little ruts while going forward, drop clutch and half throttle, rinse and repeat). To be fair I was basically on ice by that point as it was 0 degrees F. 4wd would've been nice at that time..

The rot

ForumRunner_20140121_163423.jpg

And that my temp gauge shoots up and goes back to the middle and I have no leaks and my heat is fine and my engine doesn't seem to be running hot. I've turned up nothing with the search function cause all of those include a heat problem. That is what I hate about my Ranger today.

you have the same tread as my old tires. Awesome and knobby, but quiet on the road.

The location of the oil filter on the 3.0 will forever be my least favorite thing about the Ranger. I've come to terms with the fact that cursing during the entire oil change is the only thing that helps, but damn I feel so bad about the things I say to my truck afterwards
