Very interesting...


The front locker concept still eludes them but they are moving in the right direction.

Mildly amusing they announce the new Ranger is getting Grabbers THE SAME day I ordered them for my truck.

This is neither interesting or amusing. Ford is squeezing everything they can out of this platform because they refuse to offer the one version most people want - the Schmaptor:bsflag:

Actually I don't really know if a 1" lift, tires and aux switches are worth $5k over a FX4. IMO this should be the FX4.

he was the 4th member of the Three Stooges. or maybe the 5th, not sure on that.
He was actually Mo and Curly's brother.

This is my point. You could easily buy a cheaper Ranger, then go outfit it with the tires you want and a lift kit add a switch panel to the dash and do THIS yourself. Ford has put out several different versions of the same truck, separated by the color of your tow hooks. Anybody can paint tow hooks, lol. Or add lift to a truck. There still time for a whole new package that comes with LS front diff, Ford is just dangling carrots in front of y'all meanwhile the Bronco is getting everything the Ranger guys have been asking for.

The tow hook thing is packages offered by Ford's aftermarket accessory line, Ford Performance... which is sorta different than a regular factory package.

Speaking of the Bronco, why hasn't @Uncle Gump posted a pic of his new Bronco?
Can't even buy one until next spring/summer. I didn't even reserve a first model year... was always year two at least.

which is sorta different
"sorta" "kinda" different, but really, mostly, very similar. SO many 4wd options for your Ranger, the ONLY 2wd option you can get is the FX2 package that makes your 2wd look MORE like a 4wd.

For 49.99 I'll write "Tremor" on the side of your brand new ranger with a permanent marker...
