    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...

    Ranger Center Console Armrest Fix

    Hey guys. Every Ranger I’ve owned had a cracked, worn out center console armrest. Usually I try to find a decent junkyard armrest, but they’re generally disgusting from 20 years of someone’s arm grease. So, this time I decided to repair my armrest and made a short YouTube tutorial. It’s...

  9. Gas Mileage

    So I drive a 2000 Ranger 4.0L V6 4x4 with just over 180k on it. Y'all know how many great things there are about the 4.0, but gas mileage is definitely not one of them! I'm averaging I'd say around 14.7-15 MPG, and the highest I've gotten is around 16.5. This is a bit problematic, since I drive...

    Standard Cab Long Bed VS Step Side Compatability?

    I have a 2011 2.3L 4cyl Standard Cab, and what I believe is a long bed (bed measures from cab to tailgate 6'3-4" but the tailgate has some non-factory curviture that's been implemented post manufacturing 😅 so it's hard to get a super accurate measurement) and was wondering how a 2000 Ranger Step...

  14. New member and owner of 2014 Thailand made Ford Ranger :)

    Hi guys, since I live in south east Asia, and the servicing here is really really unimpressive, (duct-tape and glue type of repairs) I'm doing most of my repairs and fixes and troubleshooting myself. But since the T6 2014 is not available in the States, its a little hard to find proper places...
