    99 Ranger IFS aftermarket replacements--need advice

    Today I realized that my wheel bearing/hub assembly on the drivers side tire is completely shot, in addition to my tie rod ends...and I'm sure my 33" MTs are to blame...so I was wondering if anyone could advise on good performance aftermarket replacements that can handle these big tires? Thanks...

    Defrost/Vent / vacuum issues?

    I'm having this issue with my 1999 Ranger XLT with the 3.0 -- When I am going up a hill at 3000RPM or higher, the vents will start blowing through the defrost. Its very annoying! Does anyone have any ideas about this? I assume its some sort of vacuum issue...I also know that this model had...

    I think my starter is dead, BUT....

    Okay, here's the situation. I knew the starter or something was about to go after i'd start my truck and here a slight squeal (off the flywheel?) after starting. But now, my truck is sitting in the driveway, and to get the starter to do anything I have to jump it. The battery is BRAND NEW, and...

    4x4 on rainy roads?

    What do you guys think of say 4x4 hi on wet roads? As some of you Pennsylvanians might now it has been pretty pissy/rainy outside and i am tired of spinning out on every damn corner. Ive been pondering this but not sure if it would be good for the drivetrain or what not. What do you guys think?

    Just got back from the shop, front wheel feels like its gonna fly off over bumps??

    So I just got my rear axle seals replaced and wheel cylinders and shoes, all on the rear, but when I got it back yesterday, I noticed that when I make a hard right turn, what seems to be the passenger front wheel shakes violently and it feels like the wheel is gonna fly off. This also happens...

    Removed trailer brake light socket..no brake lights???

    So when I put my rear bumper back on after my lift, I decided to remove the connector for where you'd plug a trailer brake light thing into. So, like an idiot I just tin snipped the wires off because I didn't have the stupid tiny torque fitting that required, and it was too corroded anyway. So...

    Messin' around a stone pile, featuring new 3" lift and 33s :)

    Homemade Gap Guards??

    To all with the 3" body lift on newer rangers, and perhaps those on older ones as well. I know someone here has made homemade gap guards, and I'm curious as to what material you used and the best way to attach it up in the fenders. My dad seems to think that rubber would rot and maybe a flexible...

    Wheel width for 33x12.50?

    Hi guys, I couldn't find anything about the proper wheel width for this size tire. I currently have the 3" PA body lift and need to get a new set of rims before i get my new tires...but I'm not sure what width to get? Would an 8" do? or would a 10" be better? Thanks for your input!

    Just installed PA body lift, and all of a sudden CD player doesnt work???

    Hey guys, just as the title says I just completed my body lift today, and viola, go to drive, and my Pioneer stereo is dead. I checked all wires and fuses I possibly could, and everything looks fine. Also have a pair of aftermarket foglites and one of them quit working (pretty sure it isn't...

    3: PA body lift - 99 ranger - rear bumper??

    I was wondering of those who have done the 3" lift for a 4th gen how you went about installing the rear bumper brackets. Me and a buddy are trying to figure this one out and plus two of the bolts are insanely tight so we're hoping those bolts wont needed to be removed. If anyone could post a...

    Opinions on/differences of BFG MTs and Firestone Destination MTs?

    I think I've narrowed it down to one of these two. What are your opinions, which do you think is better? I'm about to get my new 33's next week :-) Want to make sure I get the right ones. Thanks! Also, which ones are generally cheaper? I can't find local online quotes for places near me, guess...

    First Mud!!!

    Well so today, being as warm as it was, a coworker invited me to go to this mudhole he knew of by the Susquehanna (he has a 2000 Ranger). Real nice and muddy after the snow and ice melting! One of his friends with an 04 Tacoma showed up, and a passerby with a real nice 92 Ranger stopped by to...

    The Winch.

    So, in preparations for running to the hills when the world starts ending around me, I thought maybe it would be wise to get a winch on my truck. Plus I think they look darn cool. But, I don't know anything about them, and the few I saw in the 5000-6000lb rating are over 400 dollars (not trying...

    How Did Your Heads Blow/Crack?

    This seems to be a common problem with these engines. POST YOUR STORY! A week after I bought my ranger @ 74,000 miles I got the check engine light with the code that says engine running too cool. So I got a new thermostat to put in--and viola--there wasn't even one installed! The previous...
