  1. 1988 Ranger Restoration - Keeping a Promise

    What's it have, the 6.2 gas? Everyone seems to want diesels these days. And even the XLT trim is now considered by many to be "the base work truck". Really? What's that make my XL? LOL Everyone's into the ultra-luxury trucks that cost 5x times more than my first house! BTW I won't mention...
  2. Stepside 1st gen

    Very cool find there Shran! Come to think of it I remember seeing a few S-10 stepside's back in the 80's & 90's. I also remember seeing one, maybe two 1st-gen Dakota's with a stepside bed done up in the Lil' Red Express theme. At first I thought that was something someone built but now I'm...
  3. 1988 Ranger Restoration - Keeping a Promise

    Come to think of it Petroleum Junkie I think I remember seeing your frame donor truck in the local Craigslist here in Pgh. Sad to see another old Ranger die but glad you got it and are able to use the parts off of it. I see you're using a Ford Super Duty to tow it home with. Have you finally...
  4. Does the Upstart Ford Ranger Take Down the Best-Selling Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro? Off-Road Smackdown

    I didn't realize Renault had controlling interest of Nissan. This doesn't look good for Nissan's future as a company. Pretty much everything Renault touches turns to :censored:. Just ask AMC! I think Renault even had a hand in designing the 6.0 Powerstroke if I'm not mistaken right? Look...
  5. 1988 Ranger Restoration - Keeping a Promise

    Happy early Birthday to both you and your truck Junkie! That is really cool that you and the truck were both born on the same day! But see now you went ahead and ruined its birthday surprise. You're gonna have to get it a different gift now! LOL:ROFLMAO:
  6. 1988 Ranger Restoration - Keeping a Promise

    I think he already is a Ford man, he just won't give us the satisfaction of admitting it! Truck's lookin' good Junkie! I like the cap I thin it looks good on there. But that's just me. I love the off-road style front bumper you've got on there.
  7. New Cap

    That looks good! I like caps for all the reasons you mentioned and more; and have had one on most of my trucks now. In fact my first two Rangers both wore the same aluminum model that was passed around the family for 15 years! Over time the competition will catch up to Leer as you said and...
  8. New RTR and RTR Rambler package..

    I'd never heard of RTR. Their take on the Ranger looks like a cool little truck but too pricey and I'm way over with the trend on blacked-out trim. I'm more old-school; give me chrome! I want my truck to shine, not look like Knight Rider goes 4-wheelin'!
  9. Anybody have a SuperCab 2019 Ranger with the "Rear Seat Delete" Option?

    I have seen one at a dealer. I've thought about ordering one like that myself, an STX. Yes you can get a rear-seat delete option on the Supercab XL, and yes the factory does also remove the headrests. What you get are 2 storage bins within a hard plastic "package shelf". The bin on the right...
  10. 1986 Ford Ranger 2.0l Manual Trans RWD

    Good luck with it! I had the same problem with the shifter in my 86, back in the 90's. Ended up being some plastic snap-ring at the base of the shifter if I remember correct. Had been getting very loose for a few months and then all of the sudden it broke and wouldn't go into any gear at all...
  11. Show us your 2019 Ford Ranger - Get a decal!

    How could the Toyota Tundra not like cold weather? It's named after a large, frozen wasteland; i.e TUNDRA! :stirthepot:
  12. 1988 Ranger Restoration - Keeping a Promise

    Not to get too far off base on a Ford forum but a friend of mine has a 2018 Charger RT/Scat Pack with the same 6.4 Hemi. He's got the automatic as I don't think Dodge offers a manual in the Charger. He'll light that thing off from across the parking lot and it sounds like an angry F**'ing...
  13. The 2019 'Loan Ranger', and 2019 Ranger Adventure

    Sorry I'm late to the party Jim but I'm subscribed now. It seems like a pretty capable little truck, this new Ranger. From my one experience driving it I was impressed. If I bought one I think I'd have to ask the dealer to swap out the Hankook's for better tires for me before I even took...
  14. Drove one last week

    Thanks for the info. I'll keep an eye on GM forums as well as this one before pulling any triggers. I'm interested in the Nissan Frontier also but I've heard their transmissions don't like to pushed too hard either.
  15. Drove one last week

    Very Nice! The white looks good with the chrome package. Since it appears you traded a 2006 Colorado for this, I'm curious if you looked at the new Colorado? If so, what helped you make the decision to buy the Ranger? I'm asking because I would be tempted to buy the Colorado/Canyon over...
