I wish it had an optional v8 and opening rear windows on the back doors. I also wish Zach's(Beard) truck was an option.

opening side rear windows use to be an option. I've seen quite a few older (mid 90s?) rangers with them around here.

4-dr would be nice, but in all honesty if I go 4-dr I'd probably get a sport track in 2wd. IIRC 4-dr dakotas, tacomas, frontiers, and chevys/GMCs all have a longer wheelbase than their 2-dr extend cab sisters.

A v8 would be nice, afterall the explorer was originally built around the ranger frame and they managed to pop a v8 in it. However, I'm not too certain I'd need a V8. Like I said though, it would be nice and I'm considering it as a distant mod or going supercharged.

I'd like manual t-case and power seats back as options.

EATC and radio-controlling buttons on steering.

Really no need for keypad entry with current keyless entry option, though I can see it useful if keys were locked in truck.

Locking rear sliding window

I think it's retarded that the original polished Alcoas now cost more than the gray Alcoas.

I wish my truck would install the RCD kit itself!

I have to second the Super Cab Long Bed request. How about a heavier manual trans/clutch option (tired of having clutch hydraulic troubles in these trucks, and they never offered a good auto in these).Also, how about a better base model seat? Every one of mine has had the factory bench seat split at around 80K.
I like the older knit vinyl bench that was in my '86 F150, that material just never seemed to wear, even after well over 300K.
I'd also like to see a better list of engine options, I've been looking at new trucks, and the best engine currently available is the 3.0L, ( there's just too many issues with the 4.0,L and the new Mazda 2.3L just hasn't really proven itself yet). I'd like to see a more work oriented engine with more torque. I'd would like to see the older 2.3L or 2.5L in place of the current 2.3L too. I also noticed that Ford won't offer any sort of trailer package or hitch with the new 2.3L?

Here's a couple of things I wish came with our trucks..

Overhead console
EATC
Heated Seats
Power Seats
Pop out Rear Windows

and I always thought it would be cool to have a full window in the rear that was powered to go up and down like they do in some of the old broncos.

I'd like to see a factory lowered stance "street" type package like the ZQ8 package that Chevy offers with their Colorados and like on the S10 Extremes before those came out.

A factory option of EATC would be nice too.

The BIG thing I miss in my ext cab that my S-10 had....memeory seats. I could flip one lever, get stuf in and out of the rear of the cab, hit the same lever and the seat went back to the original position. It comes in handy when someone else drives your truck too.
Opening windows in the ext cab. It is so much easier to open those then to open the slider.
Better floor console in the standards. I really don't like the cup holder against my leg when driving.

I have a 2004 extended cab with no back doors, can I put windows in that open? I wonder how hard it would be.

As far as i am concerned anything offered on an Explorer should be offered on the Ranger. I have a loaded 06 FX4 but no Sirius option. No leather, navigation, touchscreen, or (like the Fseries) rear power window. Lets just leave the ranger in the past with cosmetic upgrade only i guess.
