Icon10 Good bye ranger hello super duty

What's up guys. So I've been kickin it around for a long time to get rid of the ranger and get a full size. So I finally bit the bullet and traded in the ranger and a Toyota Camry I had and for a full size. Well here it is

For those who never saw it or didn't remember here's the ranger



And the super duty. It's a 6.2l gas 4x4 lariat. They have a sterling 10.5 with electronic locker in the rear and a Dana 60 up front with manual hubs. But the hubs have a auto selector and a locked selector. Opposed to a free and locked. Kinda weird. Here she is

Wow. That was a nice ranger you had. But I'm sure the new Super Duty will serve you well also. Nice upgrade.

Thanks guys I loved my ranger and actually really miss it and wish I didn't have to get rid of it but I needed the money for a down. I wanted/needed the new truck cuz I want a travel trailer and a boat so I was limited on what I could get with the ranger as far as size. So I got the SD. love the truck super nice and rides smoother than the ranger lol.

Wanted one too man. But didn't want to pay the 8500 upgrade for it. I'm not towin a 11klb backhoe or anything like that and it not my dd. it's hard on diesels to not run em everyday. So I had to weight the options and it wasn't worth the cost.

your hubs have an auto and lock setting because when your hubs are in auto they are like being unlocked. but when you hit he 4wd button or turn ****. the vacuum from the engine locks the hubs in. when they are in lock they are like a normal hub. the hubs are locked in all the time and ready to go.

if you would of gotten a truck with a manual tcase. the hubs in auto wouldnt do anything they would be like your "unlock" setting. then you would have to get out and "lock" your hubs in if you had a manual tcas

sweet rig man! Love it. Nice color choice too. I hear you on the diesel! You want it but it really isnt worth it when you put the numbers down on paper.

You will love that truck for a long time
