Sorry to hear about you having trouble with your truck, I never had any with mine. All I can say is that if some day I trade my truck for a car... no far than a week I will horribly miss my truck.
Good luck .

I'm opting for a trans cooler with a small electric fan and a temp sensor in the new trans. The front suspension is getting entirely rebuilt i'll list what is being done and where. Oh i'm keeping it btw

Well you're defiantly dedicated hahaha.

I wish I could love my truck that much, as soon as mine started giving me **** I'd be 03 Twin Stick shopping lol.

I think it's a combination of bad luck, a lemon, and the mileage. I know you don't beat the **** out of the truck but damn you drive a lot lol. Or it's just a moody b*tch. It happens.

How many miles are on your truck dude? Might as well get the title changed to a 2011 Ranger by the time you're done!

Btw Dave, if you want some new fender badges to replace the black ones, I think I have an extra set of 06+ ones... I'll have to double check but I'm almost 100% sure.
