  1. Put a deposit on a new ATV!

    Saturday I went ahead and put a $500 cash deposit on a Lightly used Grizzly 450 with 51 miles on it. It was either that or a brand new leftover 2012 big bear 400. Currently waiting till Monday for the banks to come back with financing offers. However, while I'm waiting I went back to the website...
  2. My first ranger.

    Is for sale on craigslist. It was my first vehicle and first ranger...paid $725 for it and drove it for about 3 years. Sold it and got an F150 for about 6 months then went back to an '11 ranger. Kinda wish I hadn't just blown $1200 on a trip to florida. I'd probably buy it back. Miss that truck...
  3. Are the different motors for the ranger equally good?

    My 4.0L used to get 21.5 MPG on a daily basis. It was a 1997 4x4 with almost 200k miles on the clock. :thefinger: Your friend obviously needs to do some maintnence. My 4.0L when I had it also never used a lick of oil even with nearly 200k miles on it. No engine should burn oil.
  4. 2.3reliability

  7. What year radios fit in a 2011?

    Just bought a 2011 ranger reg cab, but it only has the AM/FM tuner, No CD player. I definitely need something a bit extra, so would a radio from say an '06 fit? I know they didn't change much over the years, but shopping on ebay is impossible. no buyers wanna guarantee that the radios i'm...

    Well, heres my new to me F150. Its a 2007 XLT 5.4L Triton. Manual shift 4wd. Auto Trans.

My gears are no longer notchy when shifting, and the noise i hear from the gearbox went down a lot to. I...

    got a question i hope you all can help me out with. Specs for my ranger are: 1997 XLT 4x4. 4.0L V6, 5 speed M5OD. I was wondering if there is any bolt on single piece driveshaft that would require no mods other than removing the carrier bearing support? I have a 2 piece now, and have an...
