Its funny at the track, a lot of other guys there that own a fullsize will come up adn say hey I gotta race against a ranger.... when pretty clearly if you pay attention to the times down at the end you would know if you can take a ranger or not. Mainly Dodge Dakota guys will say that to me... no offence to any Dodge Dakota drivers but they are some cocky *****, just because they have a v8 they think they own everyone.... well jokes on them when they have to work on it for tearing it up

I want to race a 4.0 Ranger, I think it would be close stock vs stock.

4.0 ranger spanks the 5.4 everytime lol. in stock form at least.

but i hate dakotas. and for having a v8, they're slow as *****.
the R/T with the 5.9 is the only one worth mentioning. and they aren't even 4wd. dakotas are ugly and ghey.

The v8 magnum dakotas are fast as heck. If I were to do a street truck, that'd be what I chose.

I beat my dads civic from a 25mph roll with no problems.

One day there was a guy in a mustang driving 30mph in a 45mph and everyone was passing him. Well, I think by the time I went to pass him he was pissed off because he punched it. I put it to the floor thinking I was going to loose. I had him until my trans (auto) went to shift into 3rd (or what ever gear it is before overdrive). I was a little more then half a car length ahead and it got stuck in gear, I ended up hitting the rev limiter so I backed off and he won.


Those are the only 2 that I won or at least barely lost that I can remember right now for the ranger. The chevy I have won against 4 or 5 and kinda hung with a duramax.

Meh. I'm sure it was a 2.7 v6 which only puts out 190 HP and it weighs more than a Ranger. The 3.5 would beat you, the 5.7 would smoke you and the 6.1 would blow your doors off.

I know with my programmer I could take it, off the line stock I'm pretty sure the ranger would have it but after 30 is where the 5.4 pulls...hard.

I wish I knew someone with a 4.0 around here, everyone has a 3.0 lol

Anyone claiming to have beat someone with a 3.0, I'm calling bullsh!t. 100%. They either didn't know you were "racing" them or didn't care.

Uhhh... 5.2's and 5.9's

Both well into the 200's with power with a nice torque band and plenty of room for improvement. They take well to simple exhaust and intake upgrades. Not impossible to have a midsized truck with 300+whp on the stock motor with out much work.
