You beat me to it. :fistbump: I was going to say it hard not to WOT it since tuning it. It's so much more fun now that it's tuned it's almost impossible not to lay into it!

For those wanting to "turn the turbo off" you could get an aftermarket tune with a few different map slots. 1 is economy map, 5PSI, 2 could be "regular" and 3 could be "bye bye tires and gas".

I had it on my Focus ST, you used the cruise control buttons to change it, and the gear indicator told you what map setting you were in.

Hi Folks,

Park the Ranger in the garage when the wife cannot figure out how to park her Nautlius on her side of the garage....Sheesh! Even with a laser parking guide...

Uwharrie National Park is only 1.5 hours away... but my truck is so pretty and shiny. :whew::whew:

I live about 45 minutes away from the Uhwarrie Matthew. Do like I did with my Jeep Matthew, just rip that band aid right off. :)

I am finding it difficult to deal with my new parking issue. The "3-car" garage in our new home is a bit smaller than the "3-car" garage in our old home, so getting the truck in in such a way as I can get in and out of it without banging the garage wall is an issue. I'm sure I'll eventually work out a routine for this, but it's annoying now.

Even so...."first world problems", right? I trying to remember to be thankful I can get it in and shut the garage door!

Phil, sounds like your garage and mine are occupied by the same two vehicle models. I've found that if my wife pulls her Nautilus in front end first, and if I back my Ranger in, with the passenger side as close to the garage door edge as possible, then I have plenty of room to get out in the middle of the garage. I guess it helps to have backed firetrucks into garage bays for over 20 years! AND, is it a slap in the face of Lincoln to say that I MUCH prefer driving my Ranger over driving her Nautilus?? :) :)

This is all the room I have. Backing it in lets me get out without banging the door on the wall. There's only about 5" clearance between each mirror and the door frames when I drive in.

But I can get it in and that's good enough for me.
