Default Hello from Ontario

I am new to this forum, but I am not to Ford Rangers. I have owned a 1984 single cab XL, 1997 super cab XLT, 2003 super cab FX4 and now another new 2011 super cab FX4, which I picked up this afternoon. I just got back from a golfing trip with the boys in Santee, SC and tonight I am going to sit down and go thru the manual. It should be very similar to the old 2003, my favourite truck. I'll get back to you guys later tonight with more particulars.

Thanks for all your "Welcomes".
I told you that my 2003 Ranger FX4 was my favourite truck. It had 172,000 km. (107,500 mi.) on it and it was running like a top. I was coming home from Ottawa a couple of weeks ago and at 8:30 pm, in total darkness on Hwy. 401, I hit a full size buck at 110 km./hr. (69 mi./hr.). I didn't even have a chance to touch my brakes. My wife was with me and both air bags deployed and it seemed like the buck was welded to the front of my Ranger for 2 or 3 seconds before it fell off to the side of the highway. We were both OK, thank goodness; but my Ranger was not. The whole front end was missing and it looked like the front part of the frame was bent upwards. A week later, the insurance adjuster wrote the vehicle off.
I was looking to get a 2008 Ranger FX4 with low mileage, but I got a little more than I was expecting from the insurance company and with all the Ford rebates ($6,000) on a new 2011 Ranger FX4, I decided to buy new. So now I am the owner of a new "Vista Blue" Ranger FX4. It now has 200 km. A couple of things that I have noticed over the 2003 is that it seems "tighter" and more refined. I also think the 2003 rode higher than this 2011 model.
With winter approaching, I am looking forward to slipping it into 4 wheel drive. It's a great truck in the snow. Also, I like the new FX4 five "Y" spoke rims and Goodyear Wrangler RT/S tires, but I miss my old "deep dish" aluminum rims.
