Rangers popular, even in S.A.

Hi, I'm Manie (user name also). I live in South Africa. Vehicle ? What else... a 2005 Ranger XLE Auto 4.0 Lit V6, wow that is a long description. Now you know what I drive. I'm 62, know older cars with real distributors, real carburettors and adjustable timing and mixtures. These new fangled computerised stuff might be "old" hat for the younger ones among us, to me, I need to learn a lot !

Bought my LDV originally to tow in break-down bakery trucks. Now I have it, 4 liters and all, so expect questions on chips, computer adjustments, by-passes etc. to make this BEAUTIFULL monster more economical etc. Oh yes, this is a nice site !
Manie
