Got the new tires. Definitely the max size without cranking the Torsion Bars. I need to trim a small tab on the drives side wheel well liner that is rubbing the tire a little at full left turn lock.

Nice looking truck Jim. I like the TRS decals on the front doors. That gives it a nice pop of color. Probably the best new ranger I've seen yet. Haven't seen many online and none on the road yet but this is the best so far. Time for a big lift kit, winch, and bigger tires.

A young guy at discount tire wanted to know if it was a special edition because of that decal.

It needs to be a special edition but it would need better options than just the decals lol. They do look like a factory package sticker they would use.

Nice 2019 Ranger! Test drove a red '19 Ranger for work a few months back. We're ordering a few white ones for our fleet. It's nice Ford offers a smaller body on frame 4x4 truck again. We like them for work, but do not like buying GMs due to their lack of quality on newer models (We find, anyways)

Photos not taken in ideal lighting, but here you go:












And on topic - replaced my serpentine belt and idler pulley today, then used rubbing compound, cleaned, and waxed my once-yellow headlights. Also removed the ugly bug deflector shield the previous owner put on there decades ago.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I know, I get lots of compliments... I am trying to find a way to attach it that may be slightly better looking than old paracord.

I used mine to haul my spare Mercedes parts inventory up to the shop. I'll be putting the Mercedes on Craiglist in a day or so. Got the car washed and vacuumed good enough and took pictures. Just have to post the ad and hope for the right buyer.

Bungees? Ratchet straps? Superglue? Pay someone to ride up there and hold it? How many more ideas would you like?

If it's going to be there permanently to be a container for something, you can buy a kit with hinged caps for the ends and u-bolts for mounting.

You spelled "complaints" wrong.

built, not bought
Hooked up a trailer & did some towing. 4.10s do work better but the 2.3 still not a fan of hills with the trailer.
