Did anyone mention a front camera? That's all I want...
With all the inattentive drivers in Honolulu, a dash cam has almost become a necessity.
I am looking at a front and rear camera setup and am leaning towards a Thinkware system.
Any insights?

What I meant was a front camera in front of the grill pointing down for trail...

I see, well I need a dash cam for the roadway "trails" here in Honolulu.
These trails are littered by that animal commonly referred to as "Jackasses"...lol :curse:

Im sure in time that will be an evolution of the bumper sensors, a factory install that works with the productivity screen.
I saw a video of a trail cam when i was researching the Ranger, but no idea which truck (or jeep) it was on.

It would have benefits for the trail, and for parking I am sure.

Well, probably shouldn't use the this four letter word on the forum, but having seen that many Ranger owners are current and former owners -
Jeep, their trail camera on the Gladiator was a $595 option that cost a total of $2300 due to the requirement of the premium 8.4 sound system.
Of course you read the forums and discover that many folks have integrated off the shelf cameras onto their jeep and into their systems.

360 degree cameras are getting common on the bigger trucks, so I'm sure they'll trickle down to the midsize segment

#1 by far is a powered roll down entire back window (my old Tundra had it and it was the best feature on the entire truck. Don’t get why others don’t do this)

- Fold Flat rear seats / fold up rear seats with flat storage option
- better storage under rear seats
- old body style Honda Ridgeline below bed cargo storage
- Bed outlets


These are all unique / super picky things based off if you’ve had them in other vehicles. I love my Ranger as is though.
Yes!!! The entire back powered window option would be awesome! It's nearly impossible to toss an empty beer can thru the tiny window from the drivers seat to the bed!!!

Haven't seen this:
SuperCab rear door full-open hinges (270 degree+standoff so they lay flat against the truck)
Endorse the Driver-side grab handle. I took the Trac for service once and got it back with a squeak in the steering wheel that wasn't there before. Thinking one of the shop monkeys jerked it up getting in for whatever purpose.
Memory on the auto stop/start button.
At least one of the displays shows temp, oil pressure, and more (configurable)

While I'm in agreement this truck is outstanding as is, these are few of the "niceties" that I would like to see added (first-world problems and all):

- @RedlandRanger - Yes to the locking gas door w/ interior release
- and also yes to the 60/40 split rear seat that actually FOLDS FLAT - seriously Ford, WTH?
- Heated mirrors & steering wheel
- Cooled seats
- Power sliding rear window (yep, it's useless as is)
- Better under seat storage in the rear / storage behind the seat on the cab wall
- Integrated trailer brake controller INCLUDED with tow package

And if the next gen Ranger comes with a hybrid option that performs as well as this one, I may be in trouble with my better half (I was told this truck has to last me ten years).

Yeah,my wife kinda said the same thing. But I told her, IF the next gen ranger has a diesel option,I'm gonna buy it. That is what it will take for me to give up my hotrod truck :cool::thumbsup:

Did anyone ever find out about adding a driver's side grab handle? Will the overseas one fit??
