  1. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Hey, it's still 2 feet shorter than MB Sprinter (long) van.
  2. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Ranger is the only option from Ford and no vendor provides anything bigger than mid-size in here. Full size trucks are viewed as Eco disaster and US thing. Basically the next step is a cargo truck like below...
  3. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Unfortunately the price on imported Raptors sky rockets. Would get two Ranger Raptors on price of one import. Now if Ford would add it to catalog and sell direct then the situation might be different. Might be the reason why most farmers in here with big truck run imports from 80's. :) BTW...
  4. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Made a sketch over an image from "longest bed" ad found on the net :) Most likely the actual solution would be replacing my old trailer with a longer one :)
  5. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Drove to farm shop, bough some plastic fence poles & electric wire. Had to open up the pole cardboard boxes since those 1,6m poles were in two stacks. Grumbled why the damn bed cannot be at least 1 meter longer, wondered who actually designs these things and why the hell we get only these...
  6. Service at 2,500 miles?

    I think it's doable, but 1200 miles might be current record. Sorry, couldn't resist.
  7. Annoying honking

    I believe that engineers who put annoying honking to cars should have their CEO locked up for life without possibility for a parole. After a few of 'em, the information that it's annoying, might trickle to designers.
  8. How about some Jokes

    Hint: Place a pair of one size too big nitrile gloves in the toilet (or outside next to the doorknob). Keeps the grease in the gloves and you can utilize the clean surface for other purposes.
  9. Ex Ford Engineer Tears down Evs

    Plausible. However we must remember that 100x100 miles equals to about 160900x160900 meters, and a solar panel is roughly 1.67m2. That brings up the question who will manufacture the 15,502,281,438 solar panels to place there? And if we count 10000 crews taking 2 minutes for installation of...

    Like Golgafrinchan Ark Fleet Ship B?
  11. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Ranger took me to Husqvarna shop to pick up a hedge trimmer (*) which I decided to buy for clearing the hedges near electric fences for horses (touch a twig and it becomes very poor rope fence). When I got back I had to try it on nearest place, which was this overgrown burden road that runs...
  12. 2021..My plans?

    Oh I am slow today... :clap:
  13. 2021..My plans?

    Nah, I just use Raptor with fox struts on the back. :giggle:
  14. 2021..My plans?

    Had to look what a 1" block is.. found a YouTube video of it. So lifting the chassis by adding 1" steel block between axle and leaf spring? Looks somewhat marginal and only useful for leveling the car & clearance at max payload. But then again, I don't know, I don't use leafs.
  15. The PIC whore club! Come on in!

    Rent an Ivan for it and then reseed. Rocks, stumps, bedrock.. doesn't matter Ivan can do about 20 inches deep leveling. Takes a day or two.
  16. The PIC whore club! Come on in!

    Not at all. I do enjoy mowing the lawn. I got 5000sqm (53,820sqft) lawn* with multitude of obstacles which takes 2-3 hours to mow even with 4x4 front mower (JONSERED FR 2318 FA 4X4). Nothing more relaxing that some peace, quiet and tunes from radio station. At the end of each run, that "I...
  17. What did you do WITH your Ranger today?

    Ranger took me to forest where I did a whole day competence demonstration for three auditors. Kind of planning to get some form of certification in the process or at least grow my own forest a bit better. Topics for today were: - Tree types (in Finland) - Tree & forest measurement height, area...
  18. Ford and Dealer provided loaner cars

    Clear cut for me. I just need car.. Warranty work => Dealer/Ford loaner Routine 1 day maintenance => Rental Accident => Insurance Non of above => Insurance premium package (Includes interruptions like blown tire, failures, towing, routine maintenance beyond 1 day, waiting for parts, wildlife...
  19. First issue with Ranger

    Nope. It's modded to LCV and she doesn't have adequate license to drive it :)
  20. First issue with Ranger

    So I bought a Ranger (Raptor!) few months back and it's been pretty ok. It works well for hauling stuff and kids are happy enough with the seating. Coming from "no-gearbox" Chevy Volt the odd clunks & awkward shifts are tolerable. But now I've ran into a problem which I did not anticipate. My...
