New Ranger in the driveway...

Well the new beater came home today. 1996 ext 2 door, 3.0L , 5speed, 2wd..

I now finally own a 3.0L FML... LOL


only pics for now, she needs some loving bad brakes, suspension, needs cleaning BAD inside, needs tune up. then is good to go. Came with Snow tires and wheels that are over 70% and also the tires on it are great. to small tho so the speedo is off need to fix that was doing 70mph and the speedo said 81 lol

4.0 really isn't all that impressive either. I've driven josh's and steven's. Sure it has a little bit more happy, but its not THAT much better.


Truck looks pretty good though.

What?

It is 1000000000000000000000000000000000x times better. I went from a 99 3.0 to a 98 4.0 and there is an amazing difference.

4.0>3.0 no contest. sorry but you cant say its not that much of a difference.

3.0 = 154hp 180tq
4.0 = 207hp 238tq

and same weight in the truck, so how can u possibly say there isnt a big difference? hell the 3.0 barely has more ppwer then the 4cyl
