  12. Wannabe Ranger Raptor

    Hi Rob, On the short course Race Trucks, they use a hydraulic bump stop to soften the jounce travel.. Now mind you that we are talking some 25 to 30" of wheel travel but they do soften the jarring that the trucks would otherwise have to endure. We originally considered something like this for...

    Little back story on the RAM We at Ford were revising the F Series using the code name for the program for a new 1981 model. The code name was Ram Program. So HFII 2 and Iaccoa clashed and Lee was fired in summer of 1978. Next thing we know Lee ends up at Chrysler and Viola! The D Series...

  18. Options to make the perfect next gen Ranger

    Hi Dave, Just checked due to a puzzlement on this statement. Used the central locking system...fuel door remained unlocked... Owner's manual does not indicate the fuel door locks, but with the terrible errors in the manual I do not trust... A look see from below did not show any wires...
