Re: Need help sealing the deal with dealer...

Yeah but at the end of the day you would have paid a lot more for any of those other trucks, esp the Toyota than the $1700 in the Ranger deal. So in this case the Ford dealer would be laughing at him...

Re: I'm crazy, traded '11 Ranger for '11 5.0L F-150...

No doubt, the F-150 is huge, but not as big feeling as the current Tundra. Drive an F-250/350 and the F-150 feels like a sports car. But yeah like the others are saying if you don't "need" a bigger...

Re: kinda forgot abought the ranger.

Re: I'm crazy, traded '11 Ranger for '11 5.0L F-150...

Not sure if you've driven the 5.0L but it sounds mean as hell stock above 3-4K in the RPM range. Put it this way when I gave my buddy a ride, I gave her some pedal (Not floored) but enough to get her...

I don't know if you remembered my post a few weeks ago, I was going to upgrade into an '11, 4.0, Sport, 4x4 Ranger but the rebates on F-150's are stupid right now. I got -$6K off in rebates alone on...

Re: Thinking of dumping '11 2.3 for '11 4.0L 4x4 Sport....

I'm guessing the manual trans is the best way to get the 4.0L? What is the max tow rating on a manual trans, V6, 4x4? Sadly there is only one manual near me and it's over an hour 1/2 away. Next one...

Re: Thinking of dumping '11 2.3 for '11 4.0L 4x4 Sport....

Not pissed, didn't sign nothin. I'm curious how many of these are left out there. This dealer had two loaded 4x4's, auto only though. Probably had 15-20 of the base & xlt 2wd's though.

Re: What Ranger would you get?

I'm not as "Die-Hard" Ranger as some of you, but is the early 4.0 or one with OHC about as powerful as the 3.0 model? I would try as hard as possible to find the newest, cleaniest SOHC 4.0L, manual...
