4.0 in a ranger stock will be as follows. 1990-2000 = OHV, 2001 to current = SOHC.

What year is it? I think Grabber Orange came out in 08, before that I Think the only yellow color available was Chrome yellow.

Ha. Just look at the top of the motor. On the newer ones, there is a plastic cover that says "4.0 SOHC"

it was an 07 fx4 level 2

i am not a fan of yellow

but i definately like that colour

hooked up with an old co-worker ,, he`s got the fishing lodge to stay at but no wheels!

iv`e got the wheels ,, but but no place to stay at

the unfortunate part is! we need 4 wheel drive to get to the fishing lodge
it is an 10 kilometer drive through an old mining road ( lots of rocks and deep rutted spots )

that`s the colour competition orange

that colour rocks on the fx4`s

found me a sweet deal on a 2007 fx4 off-road with only 20,000 klik`s on the odometer

only 20,000.00

not a bad shade of blue ( not the best either but!!!!! )

too bad i cannot find 1 in compettition orange though

but i cannot find a better deal any-where else

i figure if my 4 banger cannot get any better fuel mileage than the 4.0l

i might as well break the bank and get what i originally wanted in the 1st place

my bank does not see a problem with the re-financing aspect LOL

yes they did use competition orange on rangers

i remember taking my grey xtra-cab 2wb in for service ( back in 06 )
and i saw 1 driving south with a cap

i have loved that colour ever since i saw it that day

( i have sent the new fx4 pre-opt papers down to the bank for their inspection )

here`s hoping
