lol 3.0's suck but rule.. ive got my stock 3.0 to spin the tires on pavement, not very long tho, but it has some *****.. but once i load it up for work i have to admit it is a gutless wonder... but i guess a ranger isnt supposed to have 500 lbs in the bed with a 1000 lb tongue heavy trailer without a tow package... my poor bumper... its slowly bending down.. moved about 1" 1/2 so far..

Nice....you need a "Don't Follow Me" sticker on your trailer.

Yea i think the xtera blows. I have driven one before and i thought it sucked. I would rather have an explorer, or the new sport track V8.. MMMMM Sexy!

I already tried this tactic by pulling a trailer. Didn't work. And try being double lifted on 35's and tell me there strong.

This doesn't have anything to do with power but I have seen more X-Terras stuck in so little it's ridiculous. In my mind they are pieces of SHI%.

Never quote that movie ever again.


Congrats on the "victory" for the 3.0L.
