Traded the ranger in today

After a few months of searching I finally found myself a nice F-150 screw. I'm a little sad to see the ranger go, but I got good coin for it.
Onto the pics:









I haven't had a chance to take any pics yet, those are dealer pics. It's an 06 xlt 4x4 4.6 3.73 open rear 44000 km.

I was kinda on the fence about the 5.4 vs. 4.6, Then I talked to my mechanic. His opinion was if your aren't going to tow anything really heavy get the 4.6, it's a bulletproof engine.


I got 15 for my ranger. 07 sport 4x4 90000 km. The ranger black booked for 11.

Yep. That's a very good part of the reason why I did it. BUT by getting so much for the ranger I couldn't really negotiate much off of sticker.

Stock for stock, I don't think a 5.4 f-150 could take a 4.0 ranger.

My 4.0 will be put back together this week. I just picked up my new heads today because the originals were cracked.

My 3.0 is dinky, but it's also bullet proof.

I USED to have a 95 S10 with a 383 stroker in it. What do you think?

Ever heard of Freaky Friday and Fayetteville Motorsports Park? I used to race there all the time. The first friday of every month is called Freaky Friday. 10 bucks to get in and 10 bucks to run. You can run all night until 7am. I spent many late nights out there.
