That does look good. I've been thinking of going the steel wheel route. I already have one aluminum wheel dinged up from being dropped on the face by a local tire shop plus I would worry less about wheel damage while off-road here in NV.
I bought mine from Levittown Ford. Best price I could find. Installed the rear shocks myself. I had the local Ford Service Dept install the front struts. They charged me 3 hours labor. I used the Rewards Points I got from purchase of my Ranger toward the install so my out of pocket cost...
I've bought and sold tires for a few Wranglers and other vehicles. Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace have worked.
ETA: Prices can be all over the place. Depends on location, if anyone within driving distance wants them, if you're willing to ship and so on.
LevittownFordParts.com. They have threads in the Vendor Marketplace section of the forum.
If you message them Benny will send you a discount code for shipping.
That was to cover labor. I paid $1243.38 for the leveling kit with the intention of doing it myself. I decided to check with the local dealer for installation cost because I'm old enough now that crawling around a vehicle does not have the same appeal it used to when I was younger and it would...
Thanks but I ended up having the local dealer do the front struts. They quoted me 3 hours labor ($420) for the job. I used all the Rewards points I got from purchase of the Ranger so it only cost me $168. For me well worth it as it maintains the warranty and if there are any problems it will...
Old thread but I was getting ready to do the same thing. I had the hood open tonight to adjust the headlights after a lift. It was a true "what the heck is that racket" moment. Very glad to hear it is normal for this engine.
I may have to look into that Lariat engine cover.
Actually it was yesterday. I had the local dealer install the Ford/Fox Performance front struts. Using my rewards points it only cost me $168. Figured that was well worth it as it maintains the warranty and if I have any issues it's on them.
Oddly enough they were not able to do the...
Yea, this morning before the sun came up I put my Ranger in front of the garage and marked the top/center of the beams with tape on the garage door. Figured I would park it in the same spot when I get it back and adjust as necessary.
I've had decent luck selling take-off tires on Craigslist and the FB Marketplace. I think I got $150 for the 245/75-17 tires I took off my 2019 Wrangler. They had about 6,000 miles on them. Take decent pictures.
If you just want to get rid of them list them for free. Someone will take em.
After reading this entire thread I'll admit I was a little paranoid about fuel in the oil. It seems I may have dodged this bullet. One thousand miles on this oil change. I've been paying close attention to the oil level. It has not changed that I can see and the oil smells like... well...
