  1. How to keep a Bronco on the Lot

    Yeah these clowns are crazy. I mean, maybe they're doing it to generate traffic and if by chance they find an idiot willing to pay that much....... I am waiting on my Bronco, but if my dealer pulls some price markup garbage I'll walk. I don't need anything that bad. I did a search last week and...
  2. Mouse in vent system

    I think what they do is climb up behind inner fender and into fresh air inlet. Just purchased a car from an older lady for my daughter and I could smell smoke. This thing is a 2017 with 30k. Anyhow, there was a nest under the engine cover and it was smoking and smoldering. Was probably a long...
  3. Ranger to Frontier?

    I can remember the GM when I worked at a dealership 20 years go saying "people only care about one thing: how much they get on trade". I think about this in today's world when I see some people at work trading in 2 or 3 times since this mess started (neighbor is on his 4th truck since mid 2019)...
  4. Ordered a New Ranger. After reading about the numerous problems on this Forum I am not sure I made a good choice.

    The Ranger is a good truck. As good or better than anything in the class. My biggest complaint was my paint chipping on the bed in front of the wheel. I would seriously buy some clear rock guard and spray it on day one if I knew then what I know now. Some minor annoyances I had: buzzing rear...
  5. Official Ford Next Gen Range Video

    I hear you!! I am sick from looking at trucks and thier prices. I don't know if I can or will ever buy new again. Used right now is an over inflated hard NO also! If Farley has his way, Ford is going to more of a customer ordering system like they are using now on new releases, Bronco, Maverick...
  6. Official Ford Next Gen Range Video

    Yep me too. And to call the Bronco launch a disaster is probably, somehow, being nice. A very small percentage of those have been delivered and the "Issues, Recalls etc." thread is full. From water leaks to mirrors whistling to tail light trim just falling off. I'm not sure I'm even following my...
  7. IS THE RANGER GONNA BE DISCONTINUED??

    Thank God. That was as hideous as the Gladiator and made zero sense to compete directly against the Ranger. I hope Ford goes back to multipack leafs on the 23'. The Parabolic thing is poor engineering for a truck that might be used off road. IMHO it's just Ford trying to achieve too many things...
  8. Proper Tire Pressure for 265/70/17

    What is the load rating? An LT rated C,D or especially E is gonna ride harsher than a SL or XL. I have Standard Load Grabber ATx in the size you mentioned. I set them at 33 psi and with Bilstien's it rides perfect.
  9. Firestone Destination XT

    What is the tread width? For some reason 255's seem to vary more than other tires. Those look really good on your Ranger and not skinny like a lot of 255's do.
  10. $4.75 Upgrade.

    While the red looks good on the OP truck, it is the Jeep brand Trail Hawk package signature color that was also later hijacked by GM for their off road packages. Therefore I could never do it. I saw Ford accessories sells the Ford blue hooks which look cool.
  11. 2020 Ranger center bearing updates

    I feel your pain. The two closest Ford dealers, 10 & 25 miles, basically don't want to see my truck for warranty work since I didn't buy it from them. At least, they have said so much. I tried another dealer 60 miles away at first when the truck had about 3,000 miles (stock tires). They...
  12. U-Haul knows better?

    That's crazy. An F-150 that can be rated to tow 14,000 lbs isn't even 5328 lbs, they are only about 200-300 lbs more than a Ranger. I have towed around 6,000 lbs TT with my Ranger with ease. BUT, that is with a properly set up weight distribution hitch.
  13. Mulch capacity of 5' Ranger?

    I hauled 1,200 lbs of river rock the other day. That is 1/2 a cubic yard. I was actually surprised and disappointed how the truck bounced driving 10 miles taking it easy. I can't imagine how bad it would have been with the stock FX shocks....2 things I have really come to hate about my Ranger is...
  14. One regret.

    You can purchase the truck at any point during the lease. The money you're spending trying to make it something it is not doesn't make much sense to me. Used vehicle values are up right now. You'd be better off buying it then trading it on a 4x4. Even if you bought a cheaper truck without bells...
  15. Softer Leaf Springs

    Think so? You have any data to back your comments? Holy cow dude, I was giving an opinion on an internet forum, in direct response to another user. JUST LIKE YOU DID, but you took the dark route. I fixed it for you. Settle down now.....👍
  16. Softer Leaf Springs

    I think this size truck should ride on coils. IMHO, there are way more people looking for ride quality and off road/ street performance than there are 7,500 lbs towing and more payload than many (even F-150's) 1/2 ton trucks.
  17. Softer Leaf Springs

    I think the articulation is terrible, but I really have no complaints on ride after the Bilstein install. I am not saying it can't be better, but my truck doesn't ride like a bucking bronco any more and it hauls and tows good. The tremor keeps the same 7,500 lb towing and near the same payload...
  18. Towing

    In what way? Assuming this truck (looks like supercab 4x4) has the tow package. The truck has a payload of 1,650 lbs and towing capacity of 7,500 lbs. The truck max tongue weight is 750 lbs max and Ford says the Ranger doesn't need weight distribution for that. As for your trailer OP, what do...
  19. Can I safely tow this travel trailer?

    You need a trailer brake controller first and foremost. If you have a good weight distribution, you can safely tow that if you use common (uncommon?) sense. I have towed a 27.5' box TT (30 ft overall) 5,200lb dry with out issue. If I was going to tow down a freeway, I'd run about 55-60 mph on a...
  20. Weird rattle. Transmission?

    As in, it's normal? Or you think it's loose or bad? I will have to get under it, but it's gonna need to be over 30*....🥶🥶🥶
