  1. Atlas t case and superduty axles

    I'm in the middle of the same swap....only with a older RBV...😁
  2. Rear suspension towing upgrades

    I have towed a lot with my truck. Various trailers and weights, including maxing it out. I'm still on the stock springs, but they have not sagged. Upgrading shock to a Bilstein 5100 will do wonders for stability. The Sumo springs are another great option, and I highly recommend them. Most rear...
  3. Does anyone flat tow their Ranger?

    Yes sir! Towed mine from coast to coast, and back.
  4. How Many Have Gone From Ranger to F150? Hybrid Specifically.

    I think it really depends on how your using your truck. Is it just mileage, towing, cargo space, people space, city vs burbs vs country? Lots of factors to consider. I actually started off in a Ranger years ago. Then went to a F-150, and then a F-250. Then needing more towing capacity, then...
  5. old ranger love

    I have a '85 4x4 manual sitting in my backyard.
  6. this time it is the transmission

    Part of this is PTSD. Once you have been through the transmission loss, you become very conscious of every move you make, and every shift that is the slightest different. I lost mine at 90k, or at least pulled it before it threw any codes, but was starting to shift hard, and even got stuck in...
  7. How To Upgrade The Vinyl Parking Brake Boot To Leather

    I had both the shift boot and the parking brake boot crack and split. Ford fixed the under warranty. Brake boot has again cracked and started to split. I'll definitely have to plan on getting one of these.
  8. 100 K

    Almost there. I'm at 93k, but trying to slow it down. Technically if you included flat towing I'm over 100k. 🤷
  9. 5g vs. 6g comparison

    Not sure if this was covered in here...but are the 5G and 6G cabs the same? Wondering if the rear window is the same.... some will know where I'm going with this..:sunglasses:
  10. Correct oil filter to use: FL-910S or FL-910-S

    I use the FL400S I'm mine since new. Also run a bit extra oil to compensate for this.
  11. What are you guys towing?

    Just picked it up, for a first car for my daughter. 94k original miles, one owner. Manual transmission.
  12. What are you guys towing?

    Another day of towing... Kinda sucked, since I haven't reinstalled the programer. I guess I got use to having it.
  13. Remote Transmission Dip Stick Aftermarket Support?

    Got my installed with the new transmission. Being able to fill and check levels is a game changer.
  14. New Transmission time. 😮‍💨

    Mission Complete! New/used transmission installed and working perfectly. Just saved myself over $5k
  15. Camper Towing

    Welcome to single axle trailers. They kinda suck towing. Double axle trailers pull much better. Watch how you load the trailer, and maybe look into a set of Bilstein 5100's for the rear of the truck. Should help stabilize the rear end.
  16. New Transmission time. 😮‍💨

    What a pain in the....but she's out.
  17. I have a 2019 early production model, any issues to be aware of?

    Mine is a January '19 baby too. 90k currently sitting on jack stands waiting for the new transmission to go in. 😮‍💨 Other then that, I have had the annoying HVAC door. It works, just makes noise. Stereo overheats and disconnects android auto in the summer. Stop /start I think did stop...
  18. New Transmission time. 😮‍💨

    Yeah but people are to lazy to row anymore. That is awesome transmission though.
  19. New Transmission time. 😮‍💨

    If it helps earlier Ranger/Explorer Automatics we're not that great either. A4LD and later 5R55E don't make it past much over 100k.
