    Using 03 model dome light on 07 ranger

    Hey all, I just swapped my 03 RWD ranger for an 07 4x4 this year. Loving it. One thing I miss is having the dome light switch on the actual light. The roll switch/dimmer near the headlight switch isn't accessible by the passenger. I want to know if there is a way to use an older-style dome...

    Cranks but sometimes doesn’t start

    Hey all, I just did the fuel filter, I have a 2007 ranger 4x4 XLT with 180k on it. Recently sometimes (not always) I have trouble starting it. When I turn the key, it’ll crank always but sometimes “gets caught” or something and it stops cranking. Usually when I turn the key off and try again it...

    Radio: muted when in Drive/Reverse

    04-05 Grill for my 2007 Ranger?

    Hey all- I love the look of the 04-06 grills. I just replaced my 2003 Ranger with a 2007. The chrome grill is a bit much for me in the 2007. I can't see any reason why the 2007 Ranger Girll wouldn't accept a 2004-2006 style. All seem to have four 5.5mm bolts on top, with 2 clips at the bottom...

    Battery Gauge Fluctations

    Hello! My alternator and battery both died last month, both really old, and I replaced them both with new units from Napa. Not sure if a fluctuating amp gauge needle is always something that has happened, but I’m seeing this needle go up and down a bit when lights, radio, etc, are on with the...

    Terrible Night

    It was supposed to be a great day. I took my clean ranger -- which I just lifted Thursday with doetsch tech 3" spindles -- out for a day trip. I drove 4 hours total, and then ended up breaking down about 5 miles from home. That's not the story. The story is that was a Boston state trooper...

    Lower Ball Joint Loose in Control Arm

    Hey guys, For starters, I already know they sell ball joint replacements with a slightly wider diameter for loose control arm holes, but I want to know how bad it would be to keep things as is for a while. I just replaced my lower ball joints, and I had to press new Moog replacements into...
