pvh. I never had an issue with 4x4 engaging.

Okay, makes sense. My trucks only tranny problem is when the truck is cold is does not like shifting from 2nd to 3rd. Once warm is does fantastic. Just have to treat it nice when it is cold.

Heres the interior pics. Not much different than the normal ranger other than the head unit, ultraguage, and lightbar switch.

Ahh the Ford tan interior. One of the things I miss about my 99. Literally the only vehicle I liked the tan interior in.

Looks clean, a lot cleaner than mine... Haha. Not a huge fan of the tan (I'm partial to the light grey), but to each his own.
