'04 FX4 OFFROAD

Default New Ranger, new forum

I'm Kelly from Oregon. I Got my first Ranger about five years ago, '93 Ranger XLT 4X4, and joined TRS to learn about it. I recently bought an '04 Ranger FX4 and thought I would try out FRF. The tech section of the ranger station is awesome, I figured out how to fix my non working front drive which almost got me stuck in my sisters driveway after a good rain. That would have been embarrasing, I finally just hammered it and spun enough clay mud out of the tires to gain enough traction to get out of there. Turned out the front "auto" hubs are prone to stripping out, so I did the conversion to Warn Manuals. Then the transfer case wasn't shifting, I tested out the module and it was good, so I tore into the shifter and found the plastic spacer on the rotating gear was broken off. I fabbed up a new one and, viola, no further problems in the last five years. It is nice to have things work as designed. So now I hope to have such good fortune with you guys here at FRF.

Thanks in advance, and Happy New Year!
Kelly
