    Best option for increasing HP?

    31" tires are way too tall for 3.73 gears on that engine. You need to be at least with 4.10s and 4.56s as suggested above is not a bad idea either. That will give you effectively 10% or 22% more torque than you now have, which is a huge deal.

    Do IRIDIUM plugs need a larger GAP than Platinum, .050 vs .044??

    In my opinion, iridium plugs can have a larger gap than standard or platinum plugs because the small point on the electrode concentrates or focuses where the spark will jump, whereas the flat areas of the regular plug results in the spark originating in a different spot at different times...

    HELP WITH ELECTRIC FANS, WHICH ONE TO USE?

    @Elutheros - how did you secure the bottom of the Volvo shroud in your application? I am about to install that in my truck and have not decided the best way.

    Looking for 17" or 18" wheel/rim ideas

    iirc, the Jeep wheels have a smaller center bore diameter, so they need to be bored out to fit on the Ranger.

    Looking for 17" or 18" wheel/rim ideas

    I had those 20s on for about a month and I hated the ride. There just needs to be more tire sidewall for the Ranger to ride decent, so I bought these 17s and put them on and sold the 20s at a nice gain.

    Looking for 17" or 18" wheel/rim ideas

    I like these, they are from 2000-ish Mustang. I have 1.25" spacers. I got the center caps that have no Mustang logo off eBay. I painted with 2k paint and its holding up well after a couple years.

    HELP WITH ELECTRIC FANS, WHICH ONE TO USE?

    The answer that depends on the condition of the fan clutch. If the fan is running all the time it uses a good chunk, up to 10. If it decouples like it should, its more like half of that.

    What did you do to your Ranger today? (Part Deux!)

    What kind of parts are you looking for in the fuel tank?

    Well THAT'S a problem 05 2.3 2Wdr

    #12 wire is way too small to run the starter motor.

    V8 swap, tcases.

    Does the bolt pattern of the Jeep 208 fit the back of a Ford trans adapter or is there another adapter required? Or just the spacer?

    I like this best, or a 2 speed from a 90s Taurus 3.8. https://www.therangerstation.com/tech_library/volvo_electric_fan.shtml

    '90 model F-150 Will Only Idle

    It will not run with a Ranger pcm, so that is a total waste of your time.

    Conversion kit?

    I think the way to execute the shifter is to make a rack similar to the one that is on the market and just remove the electric motor and install the rack/pinion. I think that can be done for way less than the $800 they are charging, but I'm not optimistic it can be done at a profit for $300.

    Bellhousing bolt patterns.

    I do recall that the fwd 4.6 has a unique bell housing, but I don't recall the details.

    High mileage auto tranny - change fluid and filter or leave alone?

    My experience is also with those miles just drive it until it dies. On the Ford trans, there is more risk of problems after the pan drop / filter change than without, in my experience.

    4R44E - is it that easy? And question.

    If it has been having mushy shifts for very long, the internal clutch packs will be worn out so a full rebuild will be required. If you caught it right away, changing the valve body may be all that is needed.

    Should I buy this rear axel for my 2003 Ranger Edge?

    You can repeat your opinion endlessly but that doesn't make it accurate.

    Conversion kit?

    I am about to drop the $800+ on the one that is available because I am pretty sick of the thing only shifting into 4x4 when things are warm. Its usually a cold winter morning with unexpected snow that I need the 4x4. If it were $400 I would have done it already. So I guess that means $400-500...

    V8 swap, tcases.

    Where did you buy door and window seals, @Elutheros ? I am thinking of the same thing.
