snorkel is interesting. for a 2 in lift it seems to have more clearance then usual...



but i dont want one with the steering wheel on the dumb side of the truck. steering wheel needs to be on the smart side of the truck.

What is that a Tacoma with a Ford emblem? Can't automakers build their own vehicles without copying everything else out there.

With the way Ford went with the F150 Raptor not sure why anyone would waste their time and money on something like this :(. Especially if they keep throwing those little 4 cylinder engine in everything and try to claim they'll pull 12k+ all day long.

I'd rather have just a regular late 90's or early 00's Ranger with a manual transmission and maybe or maybe not 4WD...the 2016-2017 winter was brutal 2 feet of snow, this past winter was questionable as to whether we actually had winter or not so I'm not so sure I'd really want or need 4WD. I enjoyed driving the older 80's rangers through when they stopped production on them in the US but after the tranny issues in my 93 Ranger I'd have to avoid those years they had the A4LD already got one of those in my 88 Bronco 2 although with the 2.9L V6 I don't think its got the guts to damage the A4LD LOL.

Can't wait for the new Rangers and the new Broncos to come out but I won't be buying at least not for a few years, and I wouldn't be buying new, learned my lesson on that twice...yeah slow learner HAHA!!!

Any updates on approximate times the Rangers will hit the showrooms/dealerships? I am anxious to go look at one just to say I did.

Ranger actually came out before, in the rest of the world Toyota catches crap about copying Ford.

Early 2019 is all I have heard.

HAHA, well I'll just wait patiently and see how things go, not sure I'd want a 1st year model anyhow, probably wait for a used one and still up in the air whether to go 4WD or just 2WD.

Not digging the bonnet scoop, otherwise it isn't too bad.
