HAHA I like that. feelings instead of brains. I still don't see the logic behind removing something as convenient as power steering. I agree that no one is going to want to buy it like that either.

And in America we have a name for those people. Liberals.

I can see the advantage in certain scenarios, like autocross or other "street" racing setups where sudden loss of power assist could be very bad. If it was a 97 or older I would have far fewer reservations, because the parts to do it right would exist.

The problem with swapping any year Ranger to manual steering is that the manual setup somehow managed to be more problematic than the powered ones.

I like it when things catch fire and explode, which means I do not have your best interests in mind.

I had no power steering on my Dodge M770 5/4 ton surplus 4x4...even with the giant steering wheel and after learning to coordinate steering with throttle manipulation, parking lots sucked big giant raw pig feet.

Empty spots at the back of the parking lot, with a straight pull-through to the other side, or backing in became the norm.

About halfway through owning that truck, I bought a Ramcharger suv with power steering and a wheel about the size of the Ranger. No effort at all.
