hey guys i was wondering if you could fill me in on anything on a ford rager 4x4 about 1986 or so iwas wondering if they are good 4x4s and what are some problems they have that i should look for when looking at one thanx
My '88 Ranger is just fine for 4x4ing. I have had to replace a steering box, but thats just my fault, one thing you really need to keep and eye on for the Rangers is the Radius Arm Bushings. They are notorious for dying fairly soon after installing (around 7 or 8 months i guess). But the Ranger is excellent for offroading, they can take a beating, but to a point. Get the 2.9L V6, and when you get the truck (if it hasn't already got them on) get a set of 235 inch tires. The rangers come stock with 215's. They are just too small for anything, plus the truck looks goofy with small tires on it.:canadianwannabetoydriver said:hey guys i was wondering if you could fill me in on anything on a ford rager 4x4 about 1986 or so iwas wondering if they are good 4x4s and what are some problems they have that i should look for when looking at one thanx
LOL! you should temporarily change your sig while you sell How cheap is really cheap?Crack said:Or you could always buy my 92 for really cheap!! Since I need to get rid of it. It leaks a bit of oil, nothing major. Everything else is good, cept the rear pinion, its a bit loose. I'm gonna miss it. I do have pics of it too!
It doesn't much matter what motor you run, you are still pulling the same weight around with the same resistance at the same speed. the only place you will lose fuel economy is around town, where (I) tend to accelerate as fast as possible, and its possible to accelerate faster with a bigger motor In my Rangers, 2.0L, 2.3T, 2.9L, and 5L all seemed to get me 14-16mpg in town and 16-18 over the Coquahalla Hwy, give or take. If babied, I could get 17+ town and 20+ hwy from all, but I can't drive like that for long! Next month my 4.0L should be up and running and I'll let you know how it does.metallicajunky said:I have an 84 Bronco II and the 2.8 litre engine gets almost exactly the same milage ans the 4Litre.
how big of tires can you fit on a stock BII without lift, and with MINIMAL cutting?
