  1. Don't do that!

    I use heat shrink butt connectors, or butt connectors with heat shrink over them, then wrap in electrical tape just to "seal" it extra from other stressors. I've heard very bad things about solder in a vehicle due to the stiffness and lack of resilience against vibrations over time. There's a...
  2. Just updated to Sync 3.4 on my Ranger 2019

    It's likely still pulled on Ford's side due to the issues mentioned in this thread. Per some of the information, end of September was expected "re-release" of 3.4.
  3. Odometer shots

    I just hit 15k last week. Only 10 months of having it.
  4. Report your MPG

    That makes more sense. My low points are tanks full of off-road. Normally a trip is ¼-½ tank of gas off-road, but there have been a few higher than that and that's where my lows come in. I can do really well on the highway but not much of that driving going on and there's tons of hills around...
  5. Report your MPG

    That's crazy. Even with off-road trips, I tend to range from 16-24 over a tank. 19.5mpg lifetime so far.
  6. Cleghorn August 30th

    Come now, stock boy over here was just fine! There's maybe 2 parts where I'd even remotely worry and they're not bad at all!
  7. 2021 Ranger TREMOR Off-Road Package Revealed

    There's no extra lift, that would just come from the upgraded shocks/springs.
  8. What's your brake pads life span?

    You're welcome! I say it's under warranty, with this few miles let them eat the labor and parts.
  9. What's your brake pads life span?

    Absolutely no idea. Bunk pads? Multiple times in a row? The only thing they ever did was replace pads and turn the rotors in the rear. I haven't had an issue in ~6k miles, since May, when they were replaced last.
  10. 2021 Ranger TREMOR Off-Road Package Revealed

    Don't forget that the sport package is also rolled in to what you get from the Tremor package, which makes it an even worse deal. From the Sport package: "The XLT Sport Appearance Package includes Black grille with Magnetlc surround, 17-inch Magnetic-painted aluminum wheels (or available...
  11. 2021 Ranger TREMOR Off-Road Package Revealed

    Yeah, but you're already getting the shocks and tires with the FX4 package, that's a big reason that it feels too pricey for me. Not hating on it, just seems overpriced for what it is IMO.
  12. 2021 Ranger TREMOR Off-Road Package Revealed

    Not really, they're 31.6" by the calculation. 265 * 0.7 = 185.5 (sidewall height) 17 * 25.4 = 431.8 + (185.5 * 2) = 802.8mm / 25.4 = 31.6" I mean, technically the current gen 5.0 *is* actually 5 liters. [The 2018 update] "brings total displacement up from 4,951 to 5,035 cc (302 to 307 cu in)."...
  13. What's your brake pads life span?

    I skipped most of the replies in here after reading your post. I am currently on my *THIRD* set of rear pads because each prior pair was squeaking under braking almost immediately. The first set happened in less than 500 miles after purchase, the second set were within 1000 miles, but this last...
  14. 2021 Ranger TREMOR Off-Road Package Revealed

    I have to say, the General Grabber AT2s that I put on my F-150 about 8 years ago were the best tire I'd ever used for anything. It was practically driving on rails in the snow and rain and I never once had offroad problems (though I never did any rocks with it, just trails/dirt/sand). I've been...
  15. 2021 Ranger TREMOR Off-Road Package Revealed

    Honestly, it's not worth it IMO? $4300 for the package. You get Sport package bumpers. You get special dual-hoop running boards (but aren't you going to want sliders anyways for this kind of package?). You don't get the rear tow hooks if you also get a tow package (which means you also don't...
  16. 8492 - 2019 Ranger - Trailer Brake Controller Availability

    That's why you don't have the wires. No tow package, no harness.
  17. 8492 - 2019 Ranger - Trailer Brake Controller Availability

    We're looking at potentially borrowing a family member's camper at some point in the future, I don't otherwise do much towing, but this has been on my list for a while. So I went through the Ford Accessories website for the Los Angeles area and came up with the pricing for the controller and...
  18. 8492 - 2019 Ranger - Trailer Brake Controller Availability

    I mean, it's not though? Leaving you a bare 4 wires isn't necessarily "pre-wired" for a traditional TBC solution. Every other truck I've ever seen/had that had a trailer tow package had an actual connector that already existed to just plug in a TBC rather than needing to splice together a...
  19. Report your MPG

    I've been doing mine by hand for years.
  20. Project Msfitoy V3.0

    I can't imagine they wouldn't. The bolt pattern matches (6x5.5/6x139.7) what our trucks are.
