no, you can't get crank windows ;) but I think that has been the case for all of Ford's consumer products for a long time.

Re: 2019 Ranger configurator

I'm thinking 22,000? I didn't pay enough attention to the numbers assuming I could go back and check.

Re: 2019 Ranger Thoughts from NAIAS Trip

I think the high belt line is in response to stricter and stricter crash test standards. :-/

Re: front main seal

I think he is talking about changing the front seal on the transmission, not the rear mail on the engine. Otherwise it wouldn't be leaking trans fluid right?

Either way you're gunna want to...

Re: Recommend a tonneau style

I've had a Truxsedo roll up cover for 6 or 7 years and it has worked well for me. The Velcro to hold it when rolled up sort of rotted away, but a couple new Velcro straps sorted that out.

Re: Ford Ranger Returning in 2019

Yup...the new Ranger will be a Ford version of a Honda Ridgeline; not the simple, (relatively) small, do anything, harder to kill than a ****roach, truck that many of us were hoping for.

Re: What do you think it will be like and would you buy it?

No, I'd like a mid size truck that is a truck, not a 4-door SUV with a marginal bed stuck on the back...

Re: Ford Ranger Returning in 2019

You are entitled to your opinion, just like the rest of us are, but I don't see the point of another large truck.

Re: Ford Ranger Returning in 2019

I like the Ranger for its size, the mileage is definitely secondary. I won't be replacing the Ranger with another Ford product unless it is similar in size to the old Ranger.

If the new Ranger is...

Re: SOHC lower oil pan

I gave up and checked a local shop and they'd do the job for under $250, including an oil change...I guess that is better than spending all weekend doing the job without an engine hoist.

Re: SOHC lower oil pan

that's exactly the pan I'm talking about, but my front cross member is a big box about where that tube is in the picture with barely enough room to slide the flat of my hand between the cross member...

Re: SOHC lower oil pan

that's what everybody says...but I can't get to the front 3 bolts, there isn't enough space between the cross member and the oil pan for my hand to get through, much less a wrench :(

Re: What kind of tires?

I just had to make the same decision...I went with 253/75x15 BFG Rugged Terrain's. It has only been a few days but I am happy so far
