Whats something you wished was made for Rangers?

I would love to have some long tube headers made for my 4.0 SOHC engine. I do plenty of pulling, but don't have the money a different truck, so I'm stuck with it for a while. I just would like to have a solid bump in mid range power.

On the same coin I would love an off road Y pipe to be made. I could make one myself, but just would rather spend some $$ for a quality product instead of the screwing around it would take.

What else would you guys like to see?

Cheaper lift kits.

Hot blonde passenger options would be nice.

Yeah that should have done some engine changes when the 2006+s dropped. 210hp 4.0 was cool back in 01-03 but after the Colorado and the 04+ Tacos dropped with 250+hp and 3.?s it kinda got old.

How are they the same? Completely different from the current U.S. Ranger. They are more like an Explorer with a bed.

Do you realize these are things that people "wished" were on their ranger. That's the thread, doesn't matter if it would happen or not. just sayin

I usually wonder that each time you post.

anyhow, while they are different its about the same, i mean a ranger with 4 doors, your bed is going to be worthless just like the Sport trac. I just dont see the need in making a 4 door ranger, but thats what you guys would want i guess, no need to start a argument lol..

an updated interior, more options, better drive-train components, better engine options like a diesel, more powerful v6 like most small trucks, a hybrid would be cool (joking)
