I got to see my Ranger for the first time and take it for a drive! It arrived at the dealership last Saturday one week earlier than expected.
It can't come home yet, the dealer is going to install the Ford Performance/Borla exhaust when it shows up.
The lovely wife would have appreciated the dual zone ac/heat on my 2020 XL/STX.
Her Escape has it and she likes that feature.
It's good to see Ford giving the "lesser models" some additional improvements, though. :)
It's not a dumb idea at all. You're describing my "build," more or less.

Electronic locking differential
Ford Performanced dual side exit exhaust
I have no interest in lifting or lowering, though. I'm considering buying the Ford Performance chase bar. Not to...
The Ford tracking page isn't very accurate. My ETA was September 28th. The dealership called me a couple hours ago because my truck arrived this morning.
She asked me if I wanted to come up and see it. I can't pick it up yet because there's some accessories to be installed, the Ford...
Anyone got a good outdoor picture of the OEM/Putco Black Platinum letters on a Magnetic tailgate?
This is something I still haven't decided on. If there's a subtle contrast, that's the look I'd like to achieve.
Amazon Just delivered my Husky Weatherbeater front floor mats.
In the past couple months I've also received
Ignition Bezel from a fellow Ranger5G member
FH Seat Covers from Amazon
Ford Performance license plate frame from Ebay. No, I did not pay Ford's price , lol.
Now I just need the truck...
I gave in and asked for the VIN a few days ago, lol.
It was "In Production" when I first looked. It now appears to be finished and will get shipped soon. The dealership turned in the order on July 6th.
Edit: Good grief, sorry about the way-too-big picture.
I also edited the specs of my build...
We're using an antenna, lol. We cut off the cable 11 years ago.
We have a homemade antenna (a project from my stepson's Cub Scouts days) attached to the TV in the living room and the only time it's ever turned on is when we sit on the couch and eat dinner. There's some show on a crime channel...
They're still a little rare around here, but I actually had two sightings this morning. A Magnetic one and a blue one. Both in the Loganville, GA Walmart/Home Depot vicinity.
The blue one had the dealer tag on it. (Courtesy Ford)
I think I saw that color red on the dealer's lot. It's incredibly vibrant. :)
My '86 Ranger was red, so I took a different direction this time around.
My salesman called me earlier this week and gave me an update. He said it's scheduled to be built on September 11th ( :eek: ) and if I...
When I placed the order for mine last week, I pointed at the $699.00 Doc Fees and said "We have to negotiate this doc fee."
The saleswoman quickly left to one of the nearby offices/cubicles and came back with a $75.00 Doc fee. She apologized, saying the Doc fee for the X Plan was a flat...
The first picture is a repost from the Intoduction thread.
'86 XL, I think? Edit: No, it was a S.
Purchased in 1988. 2.0 liter/5 speed. Being a teenager back then, I pushed it pretty hard,
As the years went on, I would add a nicer cloth bench seat, XLT aluminum wheels (not in these...
Excuse the dirty nails.
9 years ago, we were in the middle of removing a dog pen at my wife's rental property and my stepson spotted this little guy.
I had never seen one here in Georgia before or since.
