  1. Bronco rail train loading is suspended as of today 9/14

    Seen this over on B6G & the Lighting forum. Seeing as the Bronco and Ranger are made together at MAP it must be effecting Rangers too. The article talks about fuel, grains, and fertilizer not being transported which will really throw this country into a tailspin again. Someone did mention that...
  2. Never Forget!

    I'm sure everyone here remembers exactly where they were and what they were doing on this tragic day. It's hard to believe that 21 years have gone by so please take a movement to remember those that lost their lives that day. Also remember those who rushed in to help save others, they too shall...
  3. Ford EcoBoost Carbon Buildup Issue Solved Via Walnut Blasting

    Here's a good video showing how dirty the valves in the Ecoboost get after just 44,000 miles. This is the same 2.3 we have in our Rangers. This is a reasonably priced ($500) DIY system for those who want to attempt this but also a good reminder that this should be done by a pro at some point...
  4. Reason For My Absence

    First off I want to thank everyone who messaged me concerned. I really do appreciate it and still need to get back to a few as I haven’t had time to reply to everyone yet. One of the main reasons was I found myself not being able to do my job here without being upset at a certain member. Me and...
  5. Investing And Building Wealth

    Disclaimer: This is just a fun thread to discuss investing and your own personal experiences and by no means financial advise anyone should take. Investing is very risky and you should seek out a professional advisor for guidance. So after being on here for 3 years I’ve noticed there are many...
  6. Congratulations Grandpa Terry (@fod)!!!

    Terry @FoD is now the proud grandpa of a beautiful baby girl. :party: He had text me yesterday saying his daughter in law was in labor and as of 7:00 pm still waiting. He just text me now and finally today at 11:36am she gave birth after 31 hours of labor. :eek: Hopefully her first ride will be...
  7. Ford Ranger Sales Lose Nearly Half Segment Share During Q2 2022

    The pandemic has really hit Ford hard and Ranger sales have taken a beating from it. Also all the built up Bronco orders are now finally taking priority. Something needs to change soon as there are many waiting for the next Gen Ranger and I can't see that rollout going smoothly with all the...
  8. TWO BUCKETS vs ONE BUCKET: What’s the best car wash method?

    Here’s a detailed video from Pan showing the best way to wash your vehicle. I know many don’t care and only wash theirs when it rains :shock: but with many here now getting their new Rangers and have bought a foam cannons @subquark (@puckdodger & @SteveH) I thought this would be helpful for...
  9. Arizona Free Fx4 Suspension

    If there's anyone local that wants my Fx4 suspension it's yours free. The fronts have a RC 2.5" level kit still installed on them so that might of use to someone. It has just over 20,000 miles on it so they'll be here up until the second Tuesday of August. That's when our next bulk pick up is...
  10. Ford Patent Filing Suggests EVs Could Get Haptic Feedback System

    This will be a nice feature for charging EV's and reduce charging times. It sounds similar to the Lane Keep Assist we have now where the vehicle will line you up with the EV charger. Hopefully this happens soon because when they can speed up the charging times more people (like myself) will be...
  11. Ford files for Maverick Lightning, Ranger Lightning trademarks

    We could see a full EV Ranger soon enough. I'm really looking forward to a PHEV first to get my feet wet into this whole EV market. Either way it looks like the next Gen will tell us a lot on which way the ICE vehicles will be going...
  12. I Need Help Planning Our Next Trip

    We’re thinking about heading up to Glacier NP and also to Yellowstone NP and Grand Teton NP. So where I need help is trying to find a place to stay in all these areas that aren’t stupid crazy expensive. Doing a quick search online (booking.com) the prices are pretty expensive but I realize it’s...
  13. How Far Can a Gas Truck & an Electric Ford Lightning Go Towing the Same Camper

    TFL does a great comparison with the new Lightning and an ICE GMC for towing range. Spoiler....The ICE gets double the range. :shock: I think we (well most) all knew what the outcome would be but I never expected it to be this bad. Getting only 86 miles out of a charge with an averaged size...
  14. 303 Aerospace Protectant

    Just an example how well this stuff works. I washed my truck and the tonneau cover and the plastic on the rear bumper were still pretty dirty from being off road in UT. Here you can see the difference from using this stuff and how well it really works. This stuff has great UV protection and my...
  15. Happy 4th Of July 2022

    Remembering those who gave their all so we could be free. We’re blessed with the opportunity to live in this great country. No matter what problems we’re facing now never forget this is the best country in the world. Happy 4th of July everyone!! 🇺🇸:flag:
  16. How to Make Windshield Wiper Blades Like NEW in 30 Seconds

    A good quick fix for streaky wiper blades. I wouldn’t use WD but instead a good silicone spray like Blaster. I have always hit mine with the 303 Graphene Nano Spray and the Graphene Detailer. I’m still on my original wipers so I’d say this really does work treating them often.
  17. A missed reservation and long charging times.

    Sure someday we will have a grid system and charging stations all across the country that work well. But this is the reality on what will happen now when we try and use a EV like we do an ICE vehicle today. I've said it many times I'm not against EV's (love the power/torque) it's just that we're...
  18. MPG During Our Road Trip

    I'm starting to think I've got the wrong motor in my Ranger. lol We're 2 weeks into our trip and I have 7 fill ups so far and my worst mpg has been 24.4 and the best has been 26.3. This is going through many different elevation changes starting out in AZ at around 1000' and have been as high as...
  19. 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor, 1st. look off-roading in Johnson Valley, California

    First look at the Bronco Raptor out in Johnson Valley at King Of Hammers. These are much wider than I thought at 9.8" wider than a Base Bronco and 4.8" more ground clearance. It'd be nice f they do the same 3.0 418 hp twin turbo in the Ranger Raptor.
  20. The most outstanding cars Ford mega-fans saw at the largest Ford-only auto show in Carlisle, Pennsylvania

    Looks like a really good show that was in PA with over 3,100 Fords, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles. Everything from the older Mustangs to the new Mustang Mach E GT to a 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX. https://www.yahoo.com/news/most-outstanding-cars-ford-mega-144148800.html 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor...
