    P0420 Code

    I have a 2010 Ranger 2.3L, with 69,500 miles. I was driving down the highway and the CEL light came on, so I got off the highway and pulled into the nearest Autozone to have checked. The guy said it's a P0420 code that the catalytic converter was plugged. Is there a way of confirming this...

    Gibson S/S Exhaust

    I installed the Gibson stainless steel exhaust (p/n 619713) on my Ranger. I was very pleased that it was not loud. It was slightly louder than stock. The fit was excellent too. The folks at Realtruck.com were excellent to deal with too. They direct shipped it from Gibson in CA. I did have to...

    Front Bumper Cover

    Is there anyway to tighten the front bumper cover on a 2010 XLT? I climbed underneath and noticed everything is held together with plastic rivets. The fog lights are vibrating at night from everything being so loose.

    I have a 2010 Ranger w/2.3L 5-speed and when I come to a stoplight and push in the clutch, the rpm on the tach drops to 500 sometimes below and stalls. This is a intermittent problem. The truck runs smooth and idles smooth other wise. I've been watching the tach coming to a stop and most of the...

    Extang Encore Tonneau

    I purchased one of these Extang Encore tri-fold tonneau covers for my Ranger and would like to submit a review. This is a very expensive cover for what it is, but it is nice that you can lift open the front panel to access your stuff without opening up the whole thing. It removes very quickly...

    New Shocks

    I replaced my shocks today on my 2010 Ranger 2WD with 21K miles. I was amazed that 3 of the OEM Motorcraft shocks were out of gas with such low mileage. They are junk! I put on Monroe Sensa-Trac's #37153 front and #58608 rear. I couldn't believe the difference in ride quality. I'm going to try...

    Ford Quality Rant

    Ok I take my Ranger back to the dealer with 2 quality issues, first the headliner is cut too short and you can see the metal roof between the headliner and the trim above the seat belt. The second issue is the vehicle leans on the drivers side and doesn't sit level on level ground. The dealer...
