Re: 3.27 gear in a 7.5" open rear end?

I would stick with the 3.73....that is if you want that little 2.3 to have any power at all.
The 235/75/15s tires have already robbed enough power over the stock sized tires.
Your fuel economy...

Re: Oil gauge?

The oil gauge is worthless so I wouldn't get concerned. You are right....if the oil pressure was actually an issue there would be more signs than just a low "idiot gauge" reading.
Best of luck!

[QUOTE=Revtach;2745257]If you're really from Golden, CO, then how did rust get on any vehicle there in the first place?


So cars and trucks in Colorado don't rust? WTF

Re: "Real" Dual Exhaust ?

Go to you tube and search. I am not impressed by any of the 3.0 and 4.0 Rangers with custom exhausts.....they all sound ricey to a certain degree. Don't waste your time, unless that is what you...

Re: Oil gauge?

Replace the pressure sensor first since that is the easiest.......if that doesn't fix the problem then the gauge cluster is the problem.

Re: upper control arm...

Since you didn't even know how to use the day/night switch on a rear view mirror......it would be a good idea to have this done by a pro.

Re: Air bag light

Ford will tell you to install a stock seat, and then they will install the air bag.......not before for liability reasons.

Re: sick and tired of vibrations.

Pretty desperate to go to mexico for a tire balance. Tires are out of round when new, they don't become out of round.
The wheels could be the issue, I have seen that before.

Re: '01 3.0 eating valve seats and valves? HELP!

This thread is 3 years old so chances are the OP gave up and went on to something else.

Re: Ridiculous dealer offer for my 06 Ranger Sport

Without seeing your truck no one can tell you if it's a lowball offer or not.
13 tear old truck with 9800 miles tells the dealer that the truck has been sitting around and that can be WAY worse on...

That is a beautiful truck! The Ford center caps on those black deep dish rims look great.

Re: Block users

If you can't stand the heat, quit asking moronic questions like these.
Are these the posts that you call helpful? If you need to drive a small pickup over 90 mph, then it's time to grow up boy.

Re: Get better mpg with A/T tires

Re: Any productions numbers for GT, Splash, Thunderbolt, Tremor models?

The GT is no big deal and is just trim.
The Thunderbolt is a ghetto version of a 4.0 Ranger supercab...it has a 4.0 with 10-20 HP more than a regular 4.0.
Tremor is just a Ranger with a big radio...

Re: Painting Cost

$2500 low end to paint a regular cab Ranger is high....high....high end.

Re: Painting Cost

The cost of painting the whole truck, including minor body work and proper prep work should be $1500-$2000....maybe more.
That's the cost by a professional shop and not paint can bubba.
