Re: Another off road set. This time with more water

At the fueling station tonight, looked at them they look fine. Think the camera just shows the difference, that the eye can't see.

Re: I lost it in Sears auto today

LOL Its funny because Sears did this shit to my Ranger. They lifted where the black plastic caps are at under it, and it pitted my fenders out.

Re: Another off road set. This time with more water

Yeah I didn't want to risk it. Loads of people were against the idea. It throws the color off a tad bit, but not much.

Re: Volant Cold Air Intakes

That may not work on these rangers, but its been proven to work on the F150's, and if you add more air in, you need more of a tune... At least on the f150, to see any improvement. Just saying.

Re: Straight piped my truck HD GoPro Video

On my truck when I had it, all I had done was the muffler cut off, and a chrome tip out the back. It sounded like a V8, have yet to hear one other ranger sound like it. Its a nice sound you got here...

Re: 4.0 backfireing ?

A new exhaust? As in the Catalytic converts? First of all O2 sensors can cause this, as well as a stopped up Catalytic converter. Bad plugs can cause this, cracked plugs, maybe a lose spark plug...

Re: **** Immediate Help Please****

I'd go ahead and say its the fuel pump. The relay is likely but I doubt it.

Re: ranger vs f150

I agree, F150 isn't a big truck. The Ranger is a compact truck. The F150 however is bigger then most trucks as far as height. Ford has always had height over almost any manufacture, and I ain't...

Re: ranger vs f150

I'll be sure to snap a pic of the scale next time I go through the city dump. I am sure it could be a tad off but no way it'd be off 1000lbs or greater. My full sized Taurus I owned before weighed...
