Love it man. Looks great. That color is top notch.

I just bought my Ranger 1.5 months ago, but I kinda want to sell it and sell my Bronco and buy a 05+ Fiddy. LOL

thanks again guys. and zach, theyre not really that loud. i had the bighorns on the ranger and they were louder than the trail graps. really nice tire and not crazy loud like the mud graps you have lol. id reccomend them to anyone wanting a mud terrain. they ride pretty decent too, cant feel the lugs unless your like creepin at 5mph.

also forgot to mention that the speedo is off 5mph so when im goin 50 its actually 55. how much it cost to fix this bc my milage is wayyyy off cuz it says ive only drove 115 miles on half a tank and ik ive drove more than that

Because he installed tires that are a lot bigger than stock. To me it was tolerable with 35s but I didn't like it. The truck had to downshift a lot more often, and the torque converter took more of a load getting it moving from a stop.







The Ford dealer could probably reprogram the speedometer, but they would also probably charge $75 to hook it up and plug in a number. Chances are it wouldn't be correct the first time anyway. Every time I have calibrated the speedometer with a tuner it has been a trail and error process to get it right, rather than plugging in the revs per mile or diameter.
My suggestion would be to get a tuner (it is SO worth it) and reprogram the speedo with that. Personally I would look for a used edge or gryphon.

thanks man. and yes it does. i like how the rear shocks are on the OUTSIDE of the leaf springs bc it helps reduce body roll. and when we got some snow a few months back it did great in 2wd with stock tires. great all round truck

Plus teh extra weight of an F150 compared to a ranger is a HUGE difference in all types of snow - thats one thing I hate about winter driving, gotta load up some weight or you float on top of the slick stuff :-(

shoot man, my ranger was prolly the best vehicle ive drove in the snow. we had that ice storm last year with about 6 inches of ice on the road for almost 3 weeks and i got around great in the stock ranger. no sliding or anything hardly. stayed in 2wd most of the time as well

Oh gosh, the driving is fantastic - no iffs about it! Its just when you're up on those mountain slopes and its juuust starting to melt a bit - you get like 8" of slush and then the hard pack.. my buddies chevy had no problem at all in front of me, then soon as my 4600lb truck went through it was slipping all over on the rear - including having 200lbs of sand in the back
