FX4 maybe, but wasn't the Tremor originally more of a street truck package. I never paid much attention to the package, but I definitely seem to recall it starting out as more street oriented package, not an off-road one. In that respect it would be right at home on the Maverick.

If I remember correctly, Tremor was originally more of a sound package with some exterior decals.

It WAS a stereo package with Rockford Fosgate components for Rangers only. Then they decided it needs to be another off road package and made it for all trucks in the lineup.

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.

I thought that that was the Rapper Ranger . . .

oh wait

. . . the Rapper Ranger had a turntable and pile of scratched records, too.


I think it was, anyway. My memories of the '80s and '90s are gettin kinda hazy at this stage . . . .

Are you sure they weren’t hazy back then too?

Sound system is more in line with what I was thinking, but they've had so many sound sytem packages over the years I can't keep them straight either.

Why can't we just go back to the simple 3 trim level packages with options like it used to be. The heck with special packages to get stuff. Give me an option sheet and let me pick what I want off of it, trim level be damned.

I know, that will never happen again, atleast not with the major manufacturers. Guess I'll just have to put together my own stuff with what I want in it.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Went to my favorite brew pub this afternoon and stumbled into the last few minutes of an impromptu car show. No Rangers. In fact, I don't think I saw any Fords except my Ranger. Here are a few that caught my eye.

@Uncle Gump may enjoy these first 2

Nice veedubs, and it's refreshing to see a '69 Camaro WITHOUT Z/28 or SS emblems. I like that Valiant, too; it looks like an honest survivor.

Saw this 3rd Gen Ranger on the side of the road being reclaimed by the foliage near Lawrenceburg KY last weekend. Looks like it has sat there a few years

Not really a sport track fan, but I saw this the other day and thought it was not too bad looking.

Seems lowered slightly.

Not a fan of the Sport Trac myself... in fact... I think I just threw up a little.

They're still part of the family... just not the ones the rest of the family should be judged.

I've only seen a couple that I kinda liked.
