Re: Got answer from FORD air bags

Parts guy is correct. Only the inflators will be replaced. We do them all the time at work. Only the newer Mustangs actually get a whole new airbag module.

Re: What did you do to your ranger today thread IV

Thanks. It was cleanest and best maintained of all the ones I looked at.
I try not to park it in busy parking lots because of that.

Re: Good year wrangler radials

It seems to me Goodyear makes great tires when your willing to buy their higher end option. I had 3 Sets of Duratracs between 2 trucks and they were fantastic. My Ranger had their wrangler RT's on it...

Re: TRS Acme Projectors

I know that feeling. I didn't quiet realize how big the FXR projectors I used were. I had to cut a large portion of the housing out to fit them.

Your best bet for getting and idea if cutting is going to be needed is to remove a housing, pull the bulb out and stick a tape measure inside. Measure from the bulb mating surface to the lens of the...

Re: Why are 4.0s such gas hogs?

Mine does not get great mileage by comparison to other trucks, but I average about 16mpg with my 80% city driving. Out on the highway cruising I have done 22.6mpg with the cruise set to 75.

Re: 3.0 vs. 4.0

It all comes down to how well it has been maintained. I see Rangers with with any engine make it to 250k with no problem at work. But I also see ones that need major engine work at 100k because they...

Re: Your Gun Pics, Post Em Up!

I am thinking I might make one more AR15 later this year as a SBR . Something nice and compact. Don't care for AR pistols. I want to be able to shoulder the thing. But there are some other things...

Re: Your Gun Pics, Post Em Up!

It sure wasnt cheap. I stopped counting a while back. I'm guessing in the neighborhood of $1800 for this one. However my AR15 ran me over a grand to build as well. If you ever get the itch, Ground...

Re: Your Gun Pics, Post Em Up!

Nice. I plan to buy a handgun with my taxes when they come in. Just got this put together today. Put a mag through it with zero issues. Gotta love the 308 power.

Re: rust on 15" stock steel wheels

You can try if you want, but I can tell you it isn't going to get you anywhere with Ford. Your truck is out of bumper to bumper warranty and Fords corrosion coverage only covers perforation of the...

Re: tranny info

4Rxxx are 4 speeds, 5rxxx are 5 speeds.

From what I can gather from the workshop manual the 2.5's and 3.0's got the 4R44E for that year. The 5R55E was for the 4.0 trucks. There is no mention of a...
