    New Guy in Oregon has a Canadian manufactured Ranger

    Don't think any Ranger was ever produced in Canada, 2008 would have been made at the Twin Cities plant.

    How can a 1993 Manual Tranny have gear oil in it instead of Mercon?

    Chart up in tech library still shows the 92 trans using gear oil, maybe someone did swap out. Lot of people still think gear oil belongs in a manual. Mitsubishi FM146 D 1988-1992 2.9L Ranger 4X4 Mitsubishi FM132 D 1988-1992 2.9L 2WD 5-Speed

    2005 Ford Rangers NO PATS

    Had 2 2005's, neither one had PAT's. Standard hardware key worked. Just looked at Rord Ranger Forum and member Rwenzing address this way back in 9-23-09. Said " Ford "thrifted" PATS for the 2005 model year, then it returned on V6 models for 2006 and then on all Rangers from 2007 on. They must...

    Did Ford make a factory v8 ranger for the public

    First one I know of was in 88 by SVO with several in the 90's for shows. Never for public. I've got the build list that SVO used but forgot how to add a jpg.

    FX4 axle width

    Looking at tech library see the FX4 & level 2 axles are listed as 1" wider (59 1/2") than others, same width as Explorers. Axles would then be same as pre disc brake Explorers? Never knew this an dtoo snowy to go out and measure. Dave

    Sport trac 8.8

    Found this at Explorerfroum. Doesn't mention width or other items. What year ford explorers do I look for as a donor for 31 spline and disc brakes? To get rear disc brakes and 31-spline axle, you need to look for a 1995 to 2001 Explorer or Mountaineer. Earlier years use drum brakes and may...
