Need Limited Slip differential, too much ice. How many sandbags are you guys running?
Freezing rain, fog and snow in Roch.

My Ranger is currently in the garage minus the engine. I put 4 sand tubes in the back of my F250. Three tubes should be fine for you. IMO

Two sandbags...but im 4x4 too.
When i had my 95 2wd ranger i had six 60lbs bags..
I like having extras incase i needed to open one or two up to spread the sand for traction.

Took me 45 mins to drive to my Dr. appointment when it would normally take me 15-20. It sucked but I made it in 2WD. How'd your drive go Terry?

Another one

Heres a 1997 for $800.
Wonder if a 97 would be that much different than a 98-00?

My white 98 ranger doesnt have the key antitheft system...but it has power locks and mirrors and windows. My 99 has the key antitheft but no power options...go figure.
