    Over The River Or Through The Woods, Ford Ranger Breadcrumbs Tech Helps You Find Your Way Back...

    My Personal Opinion: You've probably already seen this news release, but I figured I would share this since it's Ford Ranger news.

    You know those Hankook Dynapro ATM Tires on your new Ranger? They are Discontinued

    Thank God. Maybe Ford will start using a better all-terrain. They should take some cues from Jeep and offer a mud terrain as an option.

    Rock Sliders.. Anybody Else Have Them On Their 5th Gen Rangers?

    Looks great! BTW, I personaly consider these trucks a 6th generation. The sheetmetal on the front of the 1983-2011 Ford Ranger changed 5 times, and 'Generation' has typically been defined in the past by these changes. https://www.therangerstation.com/articles/ford-ranger-generations-1983-present/

    TRS coffee mug?

    We've done this in the past. I think the last time I did it, I just created a post in the forum asking people to submit pics. It had briefly crossed my mind last year, but I didn't think that many people would be in to calendars.

    Papaw's F350 Dually

    But, it's an heirloom with sentimental value. Their exempt from the wife rules. I know a woman up by Detroit whose husband brought home his grandfather's tractor. Does she want a tractor, no. But it was his grandfathers. I had a 1989 Ford F250 extended cab 4x4 that I fixed up. Loved that truck...

    Papaw's F350 Dually

    Man, I love the bones of this truck. Love these body styles. Look at all of that aluminum. I bet this was a real beauty when new. Definitely worth restoring!
