Thank you for the info on the CAI.
Well said an extra foot would be nice.Hello all, I’m new to this forum and this is my first post. I have been pretty much obsessed with the 5th Gen Ranger since it’s development phase before it was available in foreign markets, let alone NA market. My current daily driver is an ‘02 F-150 Lariat SuperCrew. It’s been a great truck but after almost 19 years, I’m ready for something new. I owned a ‘94 XLT supercab Ranger before the F-150 and loved that truck until I sold it. Those jump seats in the extended cab just wouldn’t cut it with child seats and that’s why I moved up to the F-150 to begin with. As nice as the F-150 are, they have grown too big and expensive and are more truck than I need or want. I love the current Ranger and especially with the Tremor package coming in 2021, but the lack of a SuperCrew with a long bed configuration (6’ bed) halts any future purchase. Hopefully the next gen will check all of my boxes?
With the Maverick slotting in below the Ranger, I could see the next gen gain an inch or two in a few dimensions to better split the difference between the Maverick and F-150. Who knows, maybe a SuperCrew with a long bed will be part of that plan? Ford is the only body on frame midsize lacking a crewcab/longbed configuration and I’m sure they are missing out on some of the market share because of this literal shortcoming. I know, because I’m one of those hold outs.
Welcome John! Now that you've joined the forum be prepared as you'll be adding stuff you never knew you needed. There's a ton of info here and a lot of cool mods. Glad to see you got the best mod done already!Hello. I’m John Rogers. Live in North AL. Got a 2019 XLT Crew cab 2WD in the blue color. So far, I’ve only added the tailgate damper(here we go). Had the truck about a year and it just rolled to 14k. Good truck overall. 2nd Ranger for me, first one was a 1994 Xtra cab 2WD. That one had the 4.0 with a manual transmission. Loved that truck. It was bulletproof. Hope this one is the same way!

Welcome John,I'm John. We're full-time RVers and just picked up a new, unsold ingot silver XLT. We will tow the Ranger behind the motorhome as we travel around Texas and the Southwest. Here we are leaving Galveston Island today on the ferry.
Welcome Matt - enjoy your new truck!My name is Matt and I'm from Texas. I've been looking for a midsize truck for years and have always wanted a Tacoma, or so I thought. I've been patiently and not so patiently waiting for kids to get out of college and kids to get married to be able to get the truck that I wanted. I have looked and lusted for Tacomas for years but knew the Ranger had come out last year and decided to give it a test drive. No comparison when I drove them side by side. The Tacoma had less room, the ride was bumpier like I was driving an off road vehicle on the road, and the seats were so much less comfortable. Had my wife go on a side by side test drive and those were her opinions too. I started looking at Rangers and contacting dealerships all over the state. Was strongly considering a Lariat as my wife really encouraged getting leather and heated seats, but I didn't know if I wanted to spend the extra $. I contacted one in Dallas about an XLT they had listed but no pics. They sent me some pics and I knew it was the one I had been looking for. It had a little over 6k on it and the owner had the dealership put in leather, heated seats when he originally bought it. It had the bed liner already sprayed in and had Westin side bars and a Retrax tonneau cover installed. I put down a deposit before ever going to see it. To say the least, I am thrilled to have the truck that I have been dreaming about for years and I feel very fortunate to have it.
