Ford Ranger T6 & 46-Inch Tires

I thought I would throw another Ford Ranger T6 in to the mix this month, since they’ll be going in to production here in the U.S. this fall.

Based on the headlights, I can see that this is a 2011-2014 Ford Ranger T6 from Thailand. The 2015-2018 Ford Ranger T6 (like we’re getting) has a slightly different fascia and headlights (one of Ford’s mild makeovers).

The most obvious feature on this truck is the Mickey Thompson Baja Claw 19.5 / 46-20LT tires on USA 20-inch wheels with a -40 offset. Lift is made possible with the help of dual coilovers at each wheel, and a 4-link suspension. You’ll also obviously notice that this Ford Ranger T6 has a SAS (Solid Axle Swap). The axles have been replaced with Toyota Land Cruiser VX80 axles.

The Ranger is still powered by the original 2.2-liter Duratorq turbodiesel. The engine breaths through a TJM snorkel, although I don’t see how this Ranger could get in water deep enough to need it. The exhaust exits through a dual chrome NK Mechanics exhaust mounted under the passenger side steel running board / slider.

Other features includes a winch, MCC front and rear bumpers, roll bar, and fender flares.

I can’t help but wonder how long it will take someone to SAS a Ford Ranger T6 here in the states.

As a Ford Ranger enthusiast who enjoys modifying my Ford Rangers for off-road use, I quickly discovered that there wasn’t any websites dedicated to the subject. So in 1999, I created What started as my own personal desire to help other Ford Ranger owners, has grown into a wealth of online information from numerous contributors. 20-years later, my commitment to the Ford Ranger, and the Ford Ranger community, is as strong as ever.
