See my thread in build journals. I am posting it here as I cannot see it in the new post threads. Might be my failure though.
I have thought of a practical sollution to add a front camera to my Ranger Raptor.
Have nearly all the parts, but just did not get to install them yet.
My sollution is also very install friendly IMO.
Please all just comment before I start installing it. And tell me if I am wrong, before taking...
Thanks that's a great suggestion. I wouldn't be surprised if a bit of mud has started to build up inside. Terrain(mud) is raster sticky after the occasional rain. I also made another post where I mentioned that I had wheel balancing issues due to collecting some mud in the rims. Thanks.
Same issue here in Europe, but then again I con look on top of almost any cars roof. Hey the other day a Porsche followed me and when we stopped at a traffic light, he was suddenly nowhere to find. Nor mirrors, neither by looking over my shoulders. LOL.
Exactly, I try to avoid the necessity to scrape them from my hood, and carefully load the remains in a hearse funeral car.
Some drivers are real wussus.
Hope we can get back to topic now, as I really feel that the whistling sound during breaking isn't normal. Especially on a truck developed...
Yes, I did go to a Ford dealer. And was talking with a very assistive receptionist. Then a sales guy walked in and told me they would need to remove the wheels and on the question if my Ford would give me some kind of warning in the Ford Sync 3 software, he told me to go to my car and check my...
Newbie to truck driving here. But what is the average life span of your brake pads?
Mine started whisling(indicator) at 7000 miles or roughly 11000km.
Note that I admit that I am also far off the average fuel consumption. As I did buy it with the intention to have some fun as well...
A simple way to check your towbar load is to use a scale under the support wheel.
Hook your trailer first and then release the lock while turning your wheel down. That way you also protect your scale from overloading. I would also use a wooden plank to distribute the weight on your scale...
Thanks for this inside information. I also had an European Ford Escort in the last century and was lucky to not have this issue. Though it was widely known as a risk. And still was a major concern for many other non Ford owners as well.
No problem. EU versions only come with open/close on remote. That's why I got confused. But It shouldn't be too hard to hardwire a solid state relay between the mirror folding contacts. Which operates when either internal light is functioning or engine running. But for the moment it is not a...
Do you have remote start in the UK? Mine is EU-spec and doesn't come with remote start. And according to feedback from Ford, it also cannot be upgraded. I would love to be able and get a remote start option too cool my car down in Spain. And meanwhile heat the engine before taking off.
Some more pictures. Info comes from www.autoblog.nl
Detail of characters do not look great without the gaps in 'R-A-P-R'.
So Ranger will only become available in the Netherlands with removed rear seats. And rear side windows replaced by non see-through plastics.
The Ranger Raptor without...
The cargo area has to be separated from the passenger area. This way the total cargo area is large enough (%) to be registered as a commercial vehicle. Saving on sales and registration taxes. As well as on owners tax. Which is also expensive at 235EUR per month!
