Saying hi from Ohio

New guy, looking for lots of information... Hopefully it is in here.... Somewhere!
Have a 2003 Ranger Edge. Wanting to do some upgrades and things are not looking good. I can't seem to find the info I need so hopefully you guys(gals) can help out where needed...

First would be a pre-runner set-up... Duffy used to make one for older models but seems they have stopped. I also would love info on 03 edge 4.0 EGR valve locations??? Can't seem to located that thing...
Then there is the issue with the PCV valve and attachments... Anyone else having issues with that vacum leak?


Other than that,,,,, Whats up all!

Yes, I have a 1966 GT350. Was my dads. He purchased used when he came home from vietnam and his brother wrecked it. I put a new front clip on it and it is needing new floor pans now. You can say a work in progress... No hurry to finish with the price of shelby parts.

I already purchased the 35.00 part from OEM and installed it... Just seems like a part that would go bad often? That stupid rubber corner boot felt like jelly when I took it off. Just seems like a aluminum or even a steel part would be better than a rubber hose and a plastic pipe?

Thanks to all that replied! Nice to feel welcome and at home!

No pics of the Ranger... Nothing special (after seeing some pics on here )
No lift (yet) nothing crazy... But after yesterday I got some great ideas... Already toaked to a guy about a OHC... and I know where there are two Explorers sitting totalled out... I dont think they are grey inside though... Possibly black.

I have a 2003 Ranger Edge X-cab 4x4 with the 4 doors. Sonic blue (grey int.). 30x9.50x16's on stock. It was cool when I got it becuase no one around here had one... Now I am seeing more and more...

Time to change I guess. But, I really love the truck... Very dependable!

I have a few other toys as well... (this is sort of what drawed me over here)... I have a 1991 F150 (big rusty) and a 1996 neon (198,000 miles goes and goes and goes)(started knocking though). (1993 bronco drive train for sale... cheap... need a trailer)

I went to the F150 site and it's a joke... You ask questions and never get answers. Here all you have to do is look around... Everyone has done anything you can think of and if you are still confused mostly they have pictures... It's awesome... This is a great informative site! LOVE IT!!!

Oh and my future brother in law is in the US spec ops and does some seriously cool/nasty/crazy stuff over in the sand dunes/mtn regions of Irag. So, I just love this pic!!! Hope you come home soon Buddy!
