Talking New Owner, 08, reg cab, 4x2, 4cyl, FORD F*CKIN RANGER!!

Good evening,
I'd like to introduce myself. I'm a new born Ranger driver. I used to drive a Jeep Liberty. My Ranger is very rough on the road compared to the Liberty. But otherwise I'm happy with it.
Can anyone confirm a couple things?
is the 4cyl engine a Duratec engine?
is it aluminum?
if so, should I be concerned with longevity?
Lastly, what can I do to make this thing EVEN MORE awesome??

is the 4cyl engine a Duratec engine?
what parts exactly are aluminum?

Steal ideas. If you like something on someone elses Ranger think about how it will look on your truck, and if you like it... go for it.
