No ranger has traction control. You're probably just feeling the tires losing and grabbing traction.

Well it's not doing it for traction. Something else is wrong then.

Your cruise control, is the steering wheel in front of you, your two feet, three pedals, your brain and a shifter. That's all the traction control I'll ever need right there

Its called ABS, or antilock braking system.

He's not stepping on the brakes. He's accelerating and losing traction.

Limited Slip is not traction control either. If the 2011 does actually have real traction control, that's pretty cool. But no other does... especially his '94.

yeah its true, the government mandated TCS on all vehicles made after 2010 just like the RSC and TPMS so the 2011 rangers def have TCS, i think the 2010's might have as well.

lol Check and Mate, lol Its kind of funny that his 1994 barely came with power steering but it would have traction control. If my memory serves me right traction control came out in 2010 and its called "advance trac" or something like it.
