Overland Expo West 2019 – And Why You Should Go To An Overland Expo! I love to travel and discover new areas. I’ve done everything from a random 1-day roadtrip, to a trip that lasted 22-days. These trips always involve me either sleeping in my vehicle, or a tent. There is an amazing sense of […]

On December 14th, I participated in a ‘Media Drive’ to finally test drive the 2019 Ford Ranger. Due to the number of people attending, and the number of trucks, I shared a Ford Ranger with my friend and automotive writer Steve Turner.

Eric Benner’s 1993 Ford Ranger 4×4 views: 628

Forum member ‘ericbphoto’ (Eric Benner) brought his 1993 Ford Ranger Splash 4×4 to the 20th Anniversary Trail Ride in Ohio, and he was definitely not afraid to wheel it.

The ‘Loan Ranger’ – 2019 Ford Ranger FX4 views: 2326

(Looks like a backdrop, but this photo was really taken in Colorado!) In March 2019, Ford loaned me a 2019 Ford Ranger FX4 to use for 6-months to celebrate 20-years of TheRangerStation.com. Ford allowed me to modify the truck as long as I didn’t drill any holes in it, or permanently mount anything to it. […]
