Re: 2020 Ford Ranger #55

I remember now after reading it again. What you did certainly makes sense in that scenario, and budget friendly too! That was a cool ride for sure.

Re: 2020 Ford Ranger #55

It has one little latch on each rear corner and it just pops up when you release the latches (they're spring loaded). It makes it impossible to get into with the gate closed and locked unless you knife through the cover. It works pretty easily. If the factory did a factory cover with electric latche...

Re: 2020 Ford Ranger #55

With the sale of the F250 complete, I can move onto getting the spray in bedliner done. This is scheduled for next Thursday. I'm getting a Line-X PRO liner sprayed in. This stuff is apparently super heavy duty and basically indestructible. We'll see, but it will be nice to have it done so I can star...

Re: 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty

The truck is sold. Kevin shared my FB listing and a friend of his shared the info with a family friend and they bought it this morning. It's headed for Mayfield Village to an old hot rodder.

Re: 2020 Ford Ranger #55

It's a little over 4145 lbs without me in it. It has a 3.73 gear and 7th gear is 1:1. I'm guessing it will be in at least 6th gear by the end of the 1/4, but probably 7th. I've read 14.6 @ 96mph out of these on 87 octane. But they do recommend 92 if you're towing, so that should help in race mode. O...

Re: 89 Corvette Mostmint #39

No way a light hit like that causes a fire in a stock system. I'm going with shoddy craftsmanship.

Re: 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty

I'm just using this as a notepad to cut and paste my ad from: 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty 69k miles 2wd I'm selling my F250 XL that I have owned for over two years. It currently has just over 69k miles on it. There is NO body rust on it but it does have normal work truck scratches and light dings. It...

Re: 2020 Ford Ranger #55

Haha! Almost the same... This new one is way stronger. This motor in my Pinto and trans would have been a MONSTER!

Re: 2020 Ford Ranger #55

It's a fair deal for sure. I'm guessing this won't happen, but you never know. It would be awhile though. Stock I've seen that they've been tested about 14.6 in the 1/4. I would think the tune would be good for .3-.4. I'm sure I'll run it in the spring to see what happens. That will be good break in...

This is only if I'm not as fast as a certain Hot Rod Canyon running around Chardon:

1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty

So to no surprise I'm selling the F-250. I'll be posting it this weekend, but if any Smokers are interested, it's $5000. If you have friends that have interest, it's $5500. It's a great truck with only 70k miles and NO body rust. I think with all the stimulus money flying around, and tax time coming...

2020 Ford Ranger #55

After some research about midsize pickup trucks, and some debate with myself, I decided that if I could get a good enough deal on a new truck, I would trade in the VW and then sell the F250 and narrow my fleet down to one daily driver that would handle at least most of my work load too. I narrowed m...
