Traction Control Feature on 2010-11 Trucks?
I'm looking for a replacement for my tired old '86 Ranger. I'm considering buying a 2004-11 if I can find one at a good price in the configuration I want (Supercab, 2.3, 5-spd. manual).
I'm a little concerned about the traction control on the newer trucks. I understand that it can be turned off temporarily when needed, but I've also read that it will throw an error light when different size tires (specifically the spare) is used. Will this system cause me problems if I use different size tires on the front and back axles of a 2WD vehicle, or does it only get upset if the difference is side-to-side on the same axle? I often put on bigger snow tires in the winter, and don't want to have problems doing this. If so, my choices are limited to the 2004-09 trucks.
