Default Another Newb with a few questions

Hey everyone, I dont have a Ranger just yet, I am hoping to pick it up by next weekend, its a 2000 ext cab 3.0 5 speed 2wd. Before I pick it up I need to know a couple things, what is the measurements of the ext area? Like from the rear cab wall to the front seatback and width wise. Also do these have a distance to empty calculator? See my wife tends to run our current 94 Cutlass almost empty so if the Ranger has the Distance to Empty thing then she will have no excuse NOT to put gas in the damn thing lol. Thanks everyone!

Welcome to FRF

They dont have a distance to empty deal but I believe it would have a gas light that comes on with 4 gallons left

Disconnect the gas gauge and your wife will learn quickly to keep the tank topped up and/or learns to monitor the odometer and do some mental calculations. Amazing what the human brain can do for free when it learns the hard way that laziness can be costly.
