Default Return after long hiatus

Well it has been since June of '14 that I last visited the site! Nothing personal, just changes in life and job that took me away from my Ranger. Since then I sold my '96, moved in to Jeep JK and JL, retired from one job after 30 years, decided I wasn't ready to retire and took a new job, moved from Kansas to Colorado. Nothing significant.... Anyway, I purchased another Ranger and moved up a couple years. Now I drive a white, 2002, Edge, bone stock with a 3.0 and automatic. I like the auto driving in the mountains but I'm finding the 3.0 a bit underpowered. Hope to do some mods with a lift (TBD), more aggressive tires, wheels, OHC, and definitely better lighting. Looking forward to being a part of FRF again and welcoming any thoughts and recommendations on the mods. Thanks
2002 Ranger Edge, 4x4, extended cab, long bed, 3.0, automatic, fully stock, white

Jim, welcome back. If the cam synchronizer has not been replaced it should be done on the 3.0 if it is making noise . Here is a link to the how to on this site. How To: Replace the Camshaft Sync and Sensor in a 3.0
