2009 ranger

are the 09 out yet? might be trading my 07 fx4 off road in for a new 09 fx4. might be a 5 speed manual this time around. autos just are too boring. im looking to get one in a differant color this time and more options. are the 09 rangers the same as 07?. i see a few things that changed but i wasnt sure. i went on ford.com to price one out. hope ford has some good rebates etc.. thinking dark shadow gray this time. leather and a 5 speed. cool trucks. i love mine but i get bored. like the power of the 4.0 too. thanks.

I would be willing to bet that they are going to be identical to the 08's.

Only change is they dropped the 3.0, so you'll be getting a 4.0.
And Sirius is standard on Sport and FX4.

Other than that exactly the same as far as options and model appearance.

Hey wait a minute. No more 3.0 means you we might be able to get a single cab 4.0 5 speed again.

Ford is gay, so that still isn't possible. The order guide is posted over on Blueoval forums, in the Ranger section.

I wish Ford would get rid of the electronic transfer case too. I like the convenience, but Im sure its something that can easily break. They would sell a ton of Rangers if they would make a 4.0, 5 speed, single cab, with manual transfer case and FX4 trim. lol, that would be a sweet truck!

Just bolt up the manual t-case. You might have the correct extension housing. If not then find one and you can bolt up the manual t-case.

LOL

No need to worry about your 07. With 20 years of 3.0L engines out there, we won't be short on parts any time soon.
