  1. 31" tires and gear ratio

    Hey guys. I have a 2005 ford ranger edge with the 3.0 in it and wanted to jump up to 31" tires. I do 50/50 street and off road (dirt) and wanted to put bfg R/T tires on the truck.

  7. No spark 93

    My 93 died on me driving down the road. No spark detected, installed a new coil and still no spark. I read around the forum and got info about the cam sensor and the ICM. The problem is I don't know how to test these components for failures. I have power to the coil but the other cable gives me...
