Default Ranger Newby

Hello,

Just purchased a used 2000 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 stepside, and was curious as to what my expectations of this truck should be.

I do not really have any intentions of "off-roading", but as I live in and area that frequently gets snow during the winter, the 4x4 will definately come in handy.

Only real mod I am intending on doing at the moment would be upgrading the headlights to "Silverstar Ultras"

Welcome, I have the same truck except, Ext. cab....

Is it the 4.0?

They are nice trucks, they do decent in the snow, but still a good idea to put some weight in the back for the 4x4 to really take affect when slippage occurs..

Its the 3.0L version. Seems pretty peppy though. I may also install one of those K&N performance air filters....any thoughts on those?

No personal thoughts from me, but if you post that in the engine tech area you will get answers.. I wanna say I have heard both ways on them.
