Cover the mirrors up. I had a problem at home a perverted cardinal would fight itself in the mirrors and decorate my truck so I tied bandana's over my mirrors. Worked great. Dumb bird left scratches on my mirrors though.

1st off, just like to say I never heard a dark shadow gray Ranger be referred to as a DSG before, guess I need to catch up with the slang...LOL

I have that same problem in the spring with the red winged black birds. But I have a BIB Ranger .....LOL
They like to look at themselves in the mirror during mating season...either that or they think their reflection is a competing male. I'll have to try Grigg's way to see if that keeps them from coming back.

All the Mach 1 owners use slang such as DSG Mach 1, so I assumed all the Ford owners with DSG probably used it.

I see you got it for sale. That is a nice combo, dsg, fx4, 5speed. I was starting to look for something like that a while back but I don't want to loose on mine.

Thanks. I hate to sell it, but my wife & I are expecting our first baby in a few weeks and I'd really like to have a truck with a backseat. I've found a Tacoma Double Cab TRD Off-Road that I really like, but I need to move this truck first. Know anyone around our area interested in a Ranger?

Ill ask around. I like my truck, I mean its simple, fun to just get in and go and show off in the summer, but I would love to have an extended cab 4x4, espically in a 5 speed. Its ashame, if I didn't already own mine I would probably be all over that for that price

I understand. As soon as I saw it at our local Ford dealer, I jumped on it. It's was the first FX4 with a 5 speed I'd seen in person actually.

Oh the birds LOVE to crap on mine! I think its cause they are blinded by the YELLOW and it freaks em out so the crap! BUT bad thing is, where I work (at the landfill), their crap is toxic (acidic) and will eat the dang paint right off!
