    @Floyd I really like how Ford did their line up - they kept it some what simple there options where. Only pay for what you want and need. Your super cab looks sharp they did a good job with those - I have 3 kids so super crew was needed.

    While the greater majority of people in this forum have a 4x4, I had no want or need for a 4x4. I live in the concrete jungle, so a 4x2 is just fine. The Ranger I had before this for 17 years was a 4x2, and never needed anything more in all that time. It is nice to have the supercrew cab over the regular supercab.

    I’m just under 1000 miles and lifetime MPG is at 20. I added a cover and I’m getting in the high 21’s my commute is 20 miles one way in Atlanta 40% Highway takes about an hour.

    Indeed, modern automatic "slushboxes" lack a rear pump, if I am not mistaken, this feature was phased out by all manufacturers in the early
    sixties?
    For you young-ums, it was possible to push start a car with an automatic back then because of this pump.

    Hi Mokume,

    Yep...the rear pump in the automatic transmission was phased out in the early 60s I recall American Motors held out on their transmissions until the MID to Late 60s...

    I admire you being politically correct in referring to the company who produced Ramblers, my Dad would refer to them as "Nash"...lol
    Almost all manufacturers had catchy names back then to describe the features on their cars, I believe Rambler called their "slushbox" transmission the "Flash-O-Matic", Ford had "Cruise-O-Matic", "Merc-O-Matic" and "Twin Turbo Drive".
    Chrysler was stuck in flight with "PowerFlite" and "Torqueflite".
    I'm sure GM had similar names throughout their divisions for the excellent HydraMatic, but who could forget Chevy's ubiquitous "PowerGlide"...lol

    Agree 100%. I am also in Costa Mesa. The only place to "off road" around here is Fairview Park, and they kind of frown on that sort of thing.
