Well according to FedEx my bull bar should be here Wednesday. So I'll do some quick measurements and if it looks like they'll work I'll order up those lights.

Replacement ranger shopping list (or, how drew was totally spoiled before) :

-tow package
-rear slider window
-4x4, preferably off road
-2001+ models
-less than 150k (100k even better)

Bonus points for gold and/or step bars. No bed shape preference (steppy bed cover was destroyed in accident).

I kept my ranger fairly clean, it doesn't have to be detailed but non-torn seats and such would be fantastic. I know I'm being picky, but well, I'm going to be.

I'm in the twin cities cities, let me know if you come across anything in the 2 hr radius. Going dealer hopping this afternoon.

No it will not fit...not without some cutting and modifications...

Your options for hoods that will fit on directly without major modifications for 2000 are from 1998-2003. Those all will work u just need to adjust the latch catch.

I'm not ruling out the 4.0, but it is not exactly high on my list of wants/needs. I didn't hate my 3.0, but I'm curious how much better the 4.0 will do with my trailer. I'm sure I'd notice some improvement!

Glenn, you know I'm not a traitor. I have owned a 2.0, 2.9. 3.0 and 4.0. with each engine upgrade, I was like "hey, this is awesome"
Nothing wrong with 3.0's!

NO NO not saying your a traitor at all.. just teasing Drew that he wrecked his 3.0 to trade up for a 4.0... lol.

In the end.. they are all Rangers...

I really don't think people hate the 3.0, but some are disappointed that it gets the same mileage of a 4.0, but does have less power.

yeah i dont get that...some people say they do get the same mileage...while others say the 3.0 gets 2-3mpgs more....
ive read it many many times in many forums....
my truck all stock, stock tires, etc.. i did good to get 18-19mpg on the highway...
now with larger tires im getting maybe 14-15...on the highway and like 12 mpgs in town...
but my speedometer and odometer are off.. those numbers are going by that...so they may be a tad lower than what i am really getting.
