First Ranger, August 1982, 83 model year.
Have a friend that has a 83 Ranger 4x4 w/ 2.3 manual, manufactured Sept. 1982, sadly, I don't know what number it is. His Dad bought it new in Nov. 1982 and drove it till he past away in 04. It is in mint condition, looks like it just rolled off the show room floor.

i have a similar situation. but its a fight between my 4.0 and a guy i worked with (he has the 3.0) hes one of these guys that i dont care what you have, his is always better. When i had my 2.3 94' he wanted to hook up to see who would pull whos. let me see v6 vs I4...i wonder. I coulda had a freakin powerstoke and hed say id out pull it.

well then when i was about to get my 4.0L 06', i told him i was getting a new truck. He was like what engine. i told him 4.0...he says "mine will leave it, and outpull it"...OK Jeremy (his name) No offense to you 3.0 guys (id never own one), but they jsut dont compare to the 4.0L...

I stopped by one day to offer him a bull gaurd my papa had for sale. He was like i just had duals put on the truck and something else you dont know about. i was like what now Jeremy....he says: "a supercharger" alright i trained this guy, i know how much me makes and that he is a compulsive lyer, so i told em id believe it when i see it.

yesterday (10/15), i stopped by to make lowes card payment and he was sitting in his truck. i talked casually with him and then he just cant be friends with me (i like his trcuk, we both like Rangers, hes just a prick) he has to go..."mine will leave yours, i got a something you dont. He evidentally got a custom tune bc his rev limiter was off. im not worried at this point.

so we oull out of parking lot, he was in front of me and he purposly slows down to wait for me to close to him, then he kicks it. i just floored it and passed him easily...did some sign language and kept on trucking (never went pass speed limit). im happy now, maybe itll shut him up for a little bit.

Scott, I had a similar deal with my F100. Buddy had an 85 F150 w/ 302, AOD, and 8.8 w/ 3.73's. I had what I have in my sig. We had a little pulling contest in our trucks. He thought he could out pull me. Well, even though my F100 is half dead, and has close to the world's worst pulling gear ratio, the pull was dead even. He couldn't pull mine, I couldn't pull his. Later I heard that he got scared when he felt his truck move, so he put on the brakes so he wouldn't move. Don't know how true that is, but i'm not surprised if it is true.
