Default Ford man in Kansas

I just joined in order to pick the brains of some Ranger owners. My truck is described in my signature, I bought it new in 2007 and just love the truck.

I always wonder how many other STXs are out there. It was difficult to buy as the dealers seemingly did not know this model existed. I wanted an extended cab and a 4 cylinder and was told by more than one salesman that Ford did not make one. I went to the Ford corporate website and built the truck the way I wanted it then did a search of dealer inventories west of the Missippi River, I found a total of 6 STXs, 1 in Omaha and 5 in Texas, all white.

So I got an automotive buying service to order the truck I wanted, I was not going to give business to dealers who didn't know the truck existed.

I have put 36,000 miles on the truck and just made my first modification. I installed a DynoMax cat back exhaust. It seems to have increased the mileage although I have not measured it yet.

I am putting on a set of Michelin tires as the Conintal tires that came on it are getting pretty worn. I have given some thought to enhancing the computer and that is what drove me to seek out a Ranger forum.

Very interesting story. Back in 07', my lease on an 04' Ext. Cab 4*4 Ranger was due. I was interested in a new Ext. cab 4*2, 4 door, automatic, 6 cylinder Sport in white for purchase. I was told by the salesman that none were available in this area. He checked the computer and said he had access to Ohio, PA, and MI, I believe. I really wanted no carpet, white, and I absolutely needed the 4 doors. I used the internet to find a white STX 1.5 hours away with a 6 cylinder engine -- the catch was no power locks or power windows, and it was an 06' with about 200 miles on it. The price was a couple thousand less than an 07' with similar equipment. Anyway, I later found out that the vehicle had no factory air (since STX's could be ordered with or w/o). So, it was no wonder the vehicle sat at the dealership for a year-and-half, and then, an aftermarket air conditioner was added (with no mention) to finally sell the vehicle. Clearly fraud.

Regardless, enjoy this site since a lot of great people and great knowledge can be found. Somewhere on the internet, it was posted how many vehicles were produced per model and per year. I think for the 06' or 07' Ford Ranger STX, less than 1,700 were produced, so extremely rare. In less than five years, I have only seen two or three other STX's.
