Re: Bought a lightbar

432w? 12v? Yeah, you are gonna need a relay. And 6 gauge wire because it will pull 36A. Sure sounds like something is off in their specs...

Re: 4.0 gas mileage

The 'chips' and 'cold air induction' setups will lighten your wallet is all. They will not boost performance. The Ranger already has cold air induction from the factory, drawing air in behind the...

Re: Gas tank question

That is what most people do from what I have heard. Usually it is to gain access to the fuel pump I understand, but the principle is the same. If you don't have a hoist, 2 people can pick it up and...

Re: Headlight Upgrade ?

I personally went the HID projector retrofit from www.TheRetrofitsource.com. Trying to do any 'plug and play' is a bad idea, gives shitty light, annoys all oncoming traffic, and in the US is...

Re: 1999 ford ranger 2.5 slack in steering

Re: Checking interest: Retrofitting services

I do recommend this service. He did mine, and I love them. But I wouldn't waste the $$ on OEM. Since you are going to replace the guts anyway. But talk to him and let him guide you.

Re: which engine oil?

That is a good data point about boosted cars. I haven't owned one in so long, well, lets just say that synthetic wasn't a question then, and leave it at that shall we?

Re: Best year 4cyl for highway commuting

My '07 4.0 has been stone cold reliable the entire time I have owned it. Going on 6 years.

And equally outside of your parameters, I had a '98 2.5l lima engine Ranger that ran on the highway at...

Re: which engine oil?

I currently run Mobile1 because I find it on sale at CostCo. I have used Fords, but it is a blend.

This will be a question that starts plenty of arguments...lol!

Re: Ranger down!

In my world, maintenance is more than just those two items. But then I am not claiming mid-twenties MPG out of a crown vic. No two ways about it, it is fantastic. EPA estimate was 23, all highway,...

Do a google search on each code and see what they may have in common.

Re: Ranger down!

Lol, I had to go back and re-read it. I was thinking I got 25 out of my 2.5l 5spd Ranger. 25 out of a failing Crown Vic? I gotta agree, no way.

Re: F150 is really big

You can build and price the new Ranger right now on Ford's website. The base F150 is very base. The base Ranger will not be as spartan. Base F150 is a regular cab, the Ranger won't have a regular...

Re: FRF Watercooler/BS Thread 2017

That thing is in really great shape!

I sat on a Grom the other day at the dealer. So tiny, but it looks like it would be a blast! But I didn't buy it, too much going on with the new house,...
