  1. How about some Jokes

    Is that 30 damped seconds?
  2. Rear axle not aligned.

    Hi Juergen, if the axle is not in the correct position, it is possible..not likely but something to check and verify.
  3. Rear axle not aligned.

    Hi Juergen, The axle has slots into which the center bolts drop. The key here is that you had a spring replaced and likely someone misaligned the center bolt and it not in the slot in the rear axle spring seat. It is called a spring seat for a reason. You need a shop that can loosen and...
  4. 2020 Ranger center bearing updates

    Hi Vinn, I have found that for some reason, which I do not understand, the rear driveshaft is indexed off by about one spline. I cannot get an answer inside Ford about this... Some folks claim this was on purpose, but I am clueless on what this accomplishes other to induce a potential...
  5. Any sales for Bilstein 5100's in near future? How about dent and scratch stock? Used?

    Hi Jack, A dented monotube shock is toast.... Scratch, yeah...dent....NFG. best, Phil Schilke Ranger Vehicle Engineering Ford Motor Co. Retired
  6. 4th or 5th gen?

    Hi Doug, Well....inserting the ROW Ranger is interesting, but how do you account for the ROW Ranger in 2001 and the South American Ranger in 1998...SA Ranger was Super Crew only as that is what SA loves and demanded... There are a few more variants of the Ranger. ROW Ranger was first made...
  7. Ford bolsters Ranger line-up with new Stormtrak and Wolftrak limited edition models

    No Diesel in the USA....thank GM and the Olds 350 Diesel....really made folks sour on diesels
  8. 2020 Ranger center bearing updates

    Hi Vinn, The center bearing does jump around a bit but most of us Ranger owners do not have any start up shudder which is what the TSB covers. This shudder is sudden and short lived...maybe a second or two. My fear is they installed the shims backward and did not bother to check the driveline...
  9. Rubber Shortage?

    Hi Dtech, The Henry Ford quest for latex rubber has a Green Valley aspect to it too. Here in Green Valley we have a huge Pecan Orchard. But it did not start out an orchard. Seems Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone planted rubber trees in our Santa Cruz Valley in hopes of having a domestic...
  10. 2020 Ranger center bearing updates

    My advice is to find another dealer if you can and have the TSB performed again. A good dealer has NVH equipment and should be able to determine the source of the vibration. Sounds like the dealer is just blowing you off for the most part. Good luck, Phil Schilke Ranger Vehicle Engineering...
  11. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    Hi RR, I put in 6 qts and am half way up the hashmarks... 0.2 qt in the oil filter...not likely as filter is too small... Oil change complete... Best, Phil Schilke Ranger Vehicle Engineering Ford Motor Co. Retired
  12. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    Hi Rick, Let it sit overnight and I am right half way up the hash marks... Best, Phil Schilke Ranger Vehicle Engineering Ford Motor Co. Retired
  13. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    Hi Folks, Changed the oil today on my Ranger.....only 1000 miles on the oil but over a year so the Dash Indicator says change. I decided to add the oil a quart at a time to "calibrate" the dipstick... It did not go well. Add a quart and the dipstick was coated. Had to let it sit for a few...
  14. Strange sound

    Hi Michelle.. Not likely defective. There several cases of poor lube from the driveshaft manufacturer. What I would recommend is you open a formal complaint with Ford Customer Care....the more complaints they receive the better to flag the problem to Supplier Quality Assurance. I believe...
  15. What are you drinking, after you were done with your Ranger for the day?

    HI Alan, Thank you for your experience and sorry for your loss.... We are now in touch with our Trust attorney here in Arizona for clarificatins. The DNR docs come from the State of Arizona... I will be including your experience in our continuing discussions. At this juncture, we are on...
  16. 4th or 5th gen?

    Hi Doug, This is what I believe as well. Inside the company we did not use the G designation. We had program numbers, Example PN105. Pick up, North American and 105th program to be approved by the Ford Top Brass. What would have made the current Ranger 6G is the PN273...a total frame up...
  17. How about some Jokes

    1. The nicest thing about the future is . . . that it always starts tomorrow. 2. Money will buy a fine dog .. . . but only kindness will make him wag his tail. 3. If you don't have a sense of humor . . . you probably don't have any sense at all. 4. Seat...

    What??? No Neil Young....Southern Man???
  19. What are you drinking, after you were done with your Ranger for the day?

    HI LC, They call it a brain bucket for a reason....your choice, eh? I heard this joke before.... Do not give up motorcycles...just be prudent..... I gave up my old BSA 650 and miss my bike days...but moved on to 4 wheel race cars.... best, Phil Schilke Ranger Vehicle Engineering Ford Motor...
  20. Tremor Owners and Orders Lounge

    Hi Folks, We used to do this as part of our development....This video of a jump was pretty tame for some of the jumps we did...however...we had on full face helmets. We had many 4x4 trips where someone cracked their head on the side glass. So we changed the procedure for evaluations to...
