    Getting it started off for Ohio, I'm from Fairfield and work in Dayton. So far I haven't seen another Ranger on the road, but I'm sure they will be soon :rockon: Rangers Rock

    That's probably because mine's been back with Ford getting repaired for the last 12 days. I've been on the lookout but haven't seen you yet :p

    I was super disappointed when the first post in this thread wasn't "State sucks"

    Springfield here. Mine is on order from Buckeye Ford in London. I retired from Reynolds and Reynolds in Dayton a few years ago.

    ReyRey was a great company before Brockman. I was there with VIM III, Onyx, and finally ERA. Hope they are treating you well. I give Brockman the one finger salute every month when the Pension check arrives.

    Though living in Oregon, I’ve been a consultant to Airstream in Jackson Center for a couple years. Flew in and out of Dayton. (I’m the original creator/designer for the Nest Tavel trailer.)

    Nice trailer for a rear entry!
    Are you disappointed with them putting a frame under it?

    That’s funny, not many folks know that the original design was semi-monocoque! One of its most innovative features, but one the public didn’t really care about and was more costly to build than a traditional steel frame. Too bad. Was a pretty cool idea.

    So for anyone that hadn't heard the Ohio automotive news, that gas tax got approved, but we don't need front license plates after July 2020 :handsinair:

    Yeah, when I took delivery of my Ranger, made sure to tell the dealer not to put the front plate bracket on.

    Mine already has it mounted. I'm curious what impact there is to the bumper after removing it? Not sure if it's bolted or riveted. May try to get some touch-up paint and bondo-fill the holes then paint to match. Or just leave as-is if they're not too noticeable.
