I was thinking about that, I have to get the exhaust redone becuase of the body lift, I will look into an intake. I have heard mixed emotions about the intake.

The last tank full was 18.42 MPG and that was some city, but mostly highway driving.... The original tires were 245/75R16, but have gone one size larger to 265/75R16.
Converting all the lubricants to synthetic has helped some....
The next performance/mileage modification will be JBA headers, but that wont be for a while.

OR 4x4

Yea, I was bored, sitting here @ home drinking my Margaritas, wifes gone for the weekend. I figured I would go back on the posts & see if I can learn anything more about Rangers. BTW, where did you get your lightbar? Every vender says they don't make one for the Ranger. I was going to put a Grizzly Roolbar & Lightbar on my truck, even had them ordered & have my 2 sets of PIAA's sitting here waiting but Grizzly has been bought out by Go Rhino & they are back logged a good 3 months or better.
