    2nd Fuel Tank

    Tell me about it! My pre-Ranger truck was a 1976 K10. 10mpg everywhere. Then $4/gallon gas hit AZ. Got my Ranger and it paid for itself in gas savings in like 4 months.

    2nd Fuel Tank

    I've noticed that. I would think it shouldn't be too hard to adapt a selector valve and switch.

    2nd Fuel Tank

    Thanks, Ron. That's a big help. Should be relocating soon to out of an emissions straddled county. Working on the Superlift install now, with the materials set aside for a custom flatbed. Sgt, already counting on the custom part. Thanks again, guys!

    2nd Fuel Tank

    Howdy everyone. Not sure where to post this. Mods, please move it if there's a better spot. I'm considering putting a 2nd fuel tank on my 1999 Ranger supercab. Somehow I got it in my head that a '85+ Bronco II fuel tank will fit between the frame, where the factory spare tire carrier used to...

    Rear Window Options

    I've not had any issues with my side popout window I just never use them. They aren't practical. You can't use them as a pass through. Dog can't stick their nose out even.

    M5ODR2 Bolt Pattern

    Howdy everyone. I've searched and can't find an answer to this exact question: Will a M5ODR2 from a '95 5.0 Bronco/F150 bolt up to a 4.0 from a '99 Ranger? Thanks!

    This Was Fun

    These commercials start in 1959. My first (reliable) vehicle was a '59 F100, 292 with 3 on the tree. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBQIyPj3zlk

    Boxing In The Frame

    Has anyone fully boxed in their Ranger frame? If so what are the advantages and disadvantages? Thanks! Jon

    Ranger GT Inspiration?

    I've never heard of this special production (aftermarket) Mustang, the Mustero: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1l5LTnPHNXY

    Width vs Height

    I'm not sure if anyone would have an answer or not but... If the rule of thumb says a lifted Ranger 4x4 can handle a 33x12.5 as the largest tire, if you go with a more narrow tire, can you increase the diameter/height of the tire? To an extent? Thanks!

    D35 SLA Locker?

    Like it says, has anyone squeezed a fully selectable diff locker (Eaton, OX, ARB) into a D35 SLA, while the front suspension is still stock? What about with a 4" lift? Stock it is a very tight fit to get a fully rounded diff cover in there, if it is at all possible. I'm not asking about the...

    Intermittant A/C

    Okay, my '99 Ranger a/c is ice cold. So much so I keep it about 1/3 towards the coldest from the middle. However, now that it is summer, if I need to do 10 minutes on the interstate or longer, the temperature slowly migrates to a warm temperature. It will stay like this at higher...

    Check Engine Light

    So this burned out apparently, causing the truck to fail emissions. Love little gotch'ya rules of regulation! Anyway, it was a fairly easy fix. After going through the process of removing the instrument cluster (7mm and 8mm sockets required to pull the radio/heater/ac controls, lower plastic...

    D35 SLA Oil Leak

    After installing the live axles from a '99 Explorer, the passenger side is dripping from where the CV axle and diff housing meet. I need to rotate my tires anyway, so I can take a closer look then. Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks! Jon

    D35 sla ?

    I know the D35 TTB and SLA are different animals. Will a D35 SLA from a Mountaineer work on a '99 Ranger? Thanks! Jon
