Just bought an old 2007 Ranger cheap and now I think I know why. It sounds like lumber going thru a planer in a Sawmill when I accelerate. I am hoping it is just U-joints or something small. i only paid $3000 for it so I am afraid I made a huge mistake. Anyway, it looks as though I am going to have to resurrect my old P/T Mechanic skills. I am 64 years old and don't relish crawling under a truck but C'est La Vie. I will probably be on here now and then looking for some advice so we will see you around!
