Well, after reading these boards for miscellaneous fixes and entertainment this is it. After a multi-day process to join I am now a member. I'd like to thank those that have put up the technical information so that we Ranger owners have a place to go to get it. I would also like to that the rest of you for the laughs that I got while reading your posts.
I have a 1998 Extended Cab 4X4 Ranger XLT. The mods were mostly done by the previous owner. It has a brush guard with a Warn M6000 (inoperative) winch on it, steps bars that will rust themselves off shortly, and 31" BFG AT tires. I bought this truck to replace my 1995 GMC Sonoma ZR2 that had some serious engine problems. My family has had two Explorers with the same motor and drive train so I figured the Ranger should work out a little better for my needs.
The ranger is my tow vehicle and snow buggy. We get quite a bit a lake effect here so there are days when the Focus just won't move from the driveway. I don't really wheel it because I don't have a lift and am not planning on installing one. I'm content to use the truck to move the 4 wheelers around.
Now, without further ado, here are the pics.
And this is a video where I "modded" the exaust that the previous owner put on the truck to pass inspections.
