Default Hello from Socal

Hello all, just signed up and first off, I cant believe all the Ford Ranger info on here

I got my first truck little over 1 year ago and very happy with it. It's a 1997 4.0 V6 SOHC Regular Cab, Extended bed w/ tonno cover. Dark Green. 2WD Auto trans w/overdrive. Seller was asking $2,500 for it, Bought it for $2,100 w/ the AC not working, but got the AC fixed for $20 Big win for me Anyway, thats my truck. I'll try to post pics of it in the morning. Anything anyone wants to know about me or my truck, feel free to ask

welcome to FRF, Travis!
and, your truck is not an SOHC. it's an OHV.
the V6 4.0L SOHC were not available on the Ranger until 2001.

Call me dumb, but what does OHV stand for?

Over Head Valve
Basically your camshaft is in the block and uses pushrods to actuate the valves in the head.

Welcome fellow SoCal'er!
