Default Illinois New Guy

Hi all,

I just got a new 2010 ranger, I will pick it up today, assuming they have it ready. I have driven a '96 Ranger for the past 12 years, bought it used and put 90,000 miles on it. The '96 is a 2.3L IL4 4X2 XL 5sp Manual with power nothing and tiny 14" wheels (hard to find tires!). Classic utility in motion.

This is the first new vehicle I've bought. The '96 left a few thing to be desired so I made sure to get a few upgrades on this new one. I went with the 4L v6, 4X4 XLT with the 16" wheels, power pkg, 5sp Auto, Tinted windows, Key pad entry, and remote start.

Since it come with class III towing and a hitch, now I have to find something to tow

Welcome to FRF! The 16" wheels will be easier to find tires for...but 15" wheels have cheaper options if you ever decide to upgrade your wheels, just a little FYI.
