  1. Engine Wash Advice

    I haven't washed my Ranger's engine yet, but when I cleaned the engine in my '01 Bullitt GT, I would mix up some dish washing detergent and hot water in a spray bottle. Spray everything while the engine was running and rinse. I think the only thing I covered was the box that had the fuses in it.
  2. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Today the Ranger was used to move a curio cabinet from our house and delivered to my Father In-Law's house. It's an early birthday present from the wife and I. Look at my post history and you might say "Is Scott D in the antiques/furniture business?" No, lol. The last curio cabinet purchase was...
  3. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    Thanks for the link. :) I now know what Mrs. Scott D can buy me for Christmas. I like how the clock is battery powered and the neon is 120V.
  4. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    The wife and I went to dinner a couple towns over this evening and I broke the Ranger out to make the trip. It now has over 1K on it. It took me almost 8 months to achieve it, lol.
  5. Finally stomped on it today.

    I'm about 8 miles away from 1K and I've got on my Supercab (kinda) twice. My previous vehicle was a '01 Bullitt GT (275 HP) and I gotta say the Ranger feels more impressive. The pedal hasn't even been to the floor yet, but I'm more than satisfied already.
  6. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    This was actually on Sunday, but the Ranger went on tour of the neighborhood after a storm came through Saturday night. A lot of trees came down and we were without power for around 14 hours. The lovely wife and I had gone shopping the day before, so we took almost everything in our...
  7. Rear storage on supercab

    I custom ordered my Supercab with the factory rear seat delete. I like the platform addition above. I'd like to make one with eyelets to bungee down a few things.
  8. How much have you driven your Ranger the past few weeks?

    I've had mine for almost 7 months and it has 970 miles on it now. My company vehicle (F250 Super Duty) gets used during the week and the wife's Escape gets driven when we shop on weekends. I will drive it around the neighborhood every 2-3 weeks. It's not good to let a vehicle sit for long...
  9. First Encounter in the "Wild" (Ranger's Spotted Megathread)

    I got to say "Hi" to the "Walmart Ranger" owner last week. I see it parked in the same spot every week when the wife and I go shopping. He was walking to his truck after getting off work or maybe going on break. I gave him the thumbs up and the wife told him how I point at it every week and...
  10. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    No, it's an '83 that Dad bought a long time ago. The plan was to put a 302 in it, but like most of Dad's project cars, nothing happened. I traded my '86 Ranger for an Eddie Bauer Bronco. around 19 years ago.
  11. tough getting in the truck bed with tailgate down

    The big bolt required my 1/2" drive pull handle, along with some extensions and maybe a universal to reach it. I got to use my Trek Step several times last week and it was money well spent.
  12. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    Went to a local dealership this morning and had them program the Securicode keypad that came with the truck when I custom ordered it last year. I used some of my Fordpass points to pay for it. When the lovely wife and I got home after antiquing in a nearby town, I installed it below the...
  13. 4 Months from order to delivery? Is this what others are experiencing?

    It took Ford three months to build my Supercab last year. Order placed in early July, picked it up early October.
  14. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    It got it's first bath today. :) It now has 900 miles on it.
  15. Look at my Ranger parked next to stuff

    An old barn near my house. Built in 1901, I think. I drove by it a few weeks ago and some Hollywood production company was filming in the pasture next door. You might see it on TV or in a movie someday.
  16. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    It was a productive day and the Ranger got to play a part in it. This morning I loaded up a bunch of tools and went to a piece of property that I inherited from Dad in 2019. I had to help a friend of Dad get two out of three cars moved to be trailered away at a later date. He had purchased them...
  17. "New Study Suggests Buying A New Ford Ranger Is Better Than Used One" -Ford Authority

    I bought new (last summer) and have no regrets. Judging from all of the "tailgate damper installing/lift kitting/CV axle boot tearing/crash bar cutting/tuning/change their minds/rip the mods off/trade it in for a Ridgeline" Ranger owners out there, I'd rather get one that I know it hasn't been...
  18. What did you do to your Ranger today?

    I paid it off this morning. I had made 5 payments so far and didn't feel doing that anymore. There was no penalty for early payoff. It has 871 miles on it now. :) I'm hoping it'll be the last vehicle I ever purchase.
  19. Traded My Ranger for a Ridgeline

    I've seen some very indecisive and/or fickle Ranger buyers on the Facebook page. So yeah, this thread is realistic on any day of the year. :)
  20. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Nothing special, I pulled it out of the garage and drove it around the neighborhood. It hasn't moved in 3 weeks, I think. I know I need to get out more. It's so much fun to drive. My previous vehicle was a 2001 Bullitt GT and the Ranger feels much more nimble even though it's ride height isn't...
