  1. Questions about 2000 Ranger 4x4

    Ok so the other night I was out on a dirt road and came across an area with about 2 1/2 feet of snow. Basically just to the under side of the motor. Anyways I came to a stop and moved 4x4 selector switch to 4h. When it lit up I tried to move. Nothing happened except what seemed to be tire spin...

    2001 4x4 Woes

    Friends, I'm having trouble with the 4x4 working reliably. I've read some of the troubleshooting about this but I haven't seen this particular scenario discussed. So, when I start the vehicle the 4WD light on the dash doesn't light. The 4x4 Switch does not light with engine running and does not...

    SOLVED: Transfer case end spraying fluid on undercarriage?

    Hey there. 1990 Bii project trying to get to body restore but I'm having 4x4 and apparently transfer case end issue. If you check the attached photo, it appears that I have a leak at what I assume is the rubber piece and it's spraying my undercarriage something fierce. Any idea what the part is...

    Paint Estimate

    Hey there, I've been a avid fan of 1st and 2nd Gen Rangers for a while now. I got rid of my 88' 2WD Auto a few months ago in hopes of finding a nice 4x4 '5 Speed 83-92 model Ranger. I finally found one, a single cab 83' with the 2.3L, 4x4, '4 Speed Manual. The interior has been redone to black...

    4x4 not working in my 1993 Ford ranger xlt manual v6 4.0L

    My 4wd does not work whatsoever. The only time the 4x4 orange light is illuminated is when I first start the truck and it does it’s test cycle but even then it doesn’t always light up. I replaced the shift motor and even bought a new 4x4 switch off eBay. I can’t seem to figure out what the issue is.

    Totaled ranger

    Well, unfortunately I was rear ended by some kid too busy on his cell phone while I was waiting to turn into my drive way. In my beloved 1992 single cab 2.9 4x4 ranger. Keeping the truck vs letting insurance take the truck was only a 300$ difference so I kept it. I love this damn truck. Now I...
