  1. Recommended tires for a 2019 Ranger for mixed use?

    I have Falken Wildpeaks in 265/70R17 (so one size up from stock). On and off road performance is amazing, absolutely no complaints in any terrain or condition. And when you account for price, you just can't beat it. BUT. I'm starting to wonder if they don't last as long as other tires. I have...
  2. Alignment issues at 12k miles

    I've had similar issues too. I have 265/60R17 Falkens, which is same OD as yours, and I also had feathering issues on the inside of the tires on both left and right. Here's a quick timeline on my tires and alignments: 15k miles: Received Falkens, installed with alignment 25k miles: Rotated...
  3. Fox 2.0 in all Flavors at Stage 3

    Any impressions on the ride and handling for all three?

    This thread is turning just as bad as Taco forums......
  6. Tremor Tire Rub

    My rubbing isn't actually even on the crash ribs. It's on the mount for the crash bars on the frame. Not sure why, thought at first I thought it was maybe a single tire that was slightly out of spec and poked out a bit more but I've rotated my tires and had two alignments since, but the rubbing...
  7. Tremor Tire Rub

    I don't have Tremor, but I do have the same tire size. I do experience the smallest amount of tire rub at full lock on the passenger side. That being said, the Tremors are slightly lifted and it's a stock truck. I would take it to the dealer to get it dialed out.
  8. Ford Maverick competition, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

    I used to be a "trucks are dumb, you have less lockable space than a SUV. Just get an SUV." kinda guy. I bought the Ranger because I wanted midsize body on frame and there aren't many body on frame SUVs on the market/they didn't fit my needs. Within a few months of picking up the truck, I picked...
  9. Ford Maverick competition, the 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz

    I'm excited for this segment. And if it does well, I would love to see the Subaru Baja brought back! The Maverick looked a little plain in the spy shots, so I guess we'll see what kind of trims they offer and how they will market it. The Santa Cruz is clearly going for the Subaru...
  10. Post your off-road pics.

    Honestly that's sometimes the most fun kind of off roading. Sending it with friends at the park is fun, but exploring national forest trails off the grid is just so relaxing and fun! Love the pics.
  11. Rock Crawling Ranger

    Bfg K02's are the gold standard for A/T tires. However they can be pricey. Here are some alternatives that offer great value without sacrificing performance or drivability on-road: Falken Wildpeak AT3W, Nitto Ridge Grappler, General Grabber ATX, and Toyo Open Country AT3. Hope that helps!
  12. Rust Experts needed

    It doesn't look normal for me in a California car. Not sure about all the claims that they switched materials, does anyone have a source for that? To me, it looks like you got a bad batch of bolts that started to rust and thus spread to the control arms and knuckles. It looks to be cosmetic...
  13. C, D or E rated tires?

    C is fine. It's a common misconception that a higher load rating = more protection from rocks when rock crawling. Sure, you might have more protection from rocks as a result of having a "beefier" tire, but not all E-rated tires will be better than all C-rated tires. If you get a good quality...
  14. Why Does the Tacoma Dominate the Off-Road Pickup Segment?

    I'm not sure if Tacoma truly dominates the off road pickup segment any more than it does the mid-size pickup segment. Ranger/Colorado sales are strong, but they don't compare to Tacoma. More tacos sold = you see more tacos on the road = you see more tacos off road. More sales also means that...
  15. Canopies for Ranger 5G

    Sorry to hear about your experience, definitely frustrating to pay so much and wait so long to get a defective product. Either way, you literally just got it installed, so take it back and go through with warranty. You might even be able to just get a refund and get a different brand.
  16. Ford Tuned Fox 2.0 Installed.

    Looks great! As far as tires go, here are a few options that are great: BFG KO2 (the gold standard. can't go wrong but pretty pricey) Falken Wildpeak AT3W (amazing value, currently what I run at 265/70R17 with 25k miles. Got a set of 4 for $550 and I couldn't be happier on and off road) Nitto...
  17. Ford Tuned Fox 2.0 Installed.

    I don't think so, Ford Performance tuned the Ford Fox set so I imagine it would be different than the normal valving. I have a friend at Ford Performance and he said that both the Ford tuned and Fox tuned sets are good quality, the Ford tuned one will have a more Ford familiar feel (think F150...
  18. Label comparison Motorcraft synblend vs Amazon basics full syn....

    I've always wondered how oil brands make claims on oil change intervals - how do they know that their oil meets the change interval for all engines out there on the road? Especially at 25,000 miles? Seems like it's a good way to get sued but I'm sure those big companies have a strong team of...
  19. Pics of 265/70/17 tire

    I have a friend at Ford Performance and he said that there is a huge difference in the shock valving between the normal Fox kit and Ford tuned kit. Not that Fox is bad - they definitely know what they're doing. But the Ford tuned version will be more familiar and the feel will be more in-line...
  20. Pics of 265/70/17 tire

    Thanks for sharing pics of the 1" wheel spacers on the hub. I wanted the look of 1" spacers (as opposed to the 1.5") but I could have sworn that I read that the 1" spacers don't work on the stock wheels since the lug studs slightly stick out and interfere with the mating surface on the wheel...
