November 2015 Truck of the Month

The October 2015 TOTM belongs to CowboyBilly9Mile

From Bill:

I'd spent about a year casually looking for a new Ranger to replace my current one owner Ranger. Did the usual, visiting Ford dealers and trolled online, and finally, while shopping Ebay one night about 11 years ago, I came across this 2004 Ranger FX4 Level II in Sonic Blue Pearl and bid. Competition was sleeping at the wheel, and I won. Delivery required a cross country flight, with pickup on the east coast and a one-way, ~3,500 mile drive back west. It had 1K on the clock when I got it; today it's up to 113K. It's never left me stranded and other than lousy "lubed for life" suspension parts, there has been just routine maintenance and preventive maintenance.

Drivetrain is the usual 4X setup, 4.0L SOHC + 5R55E tranny, 4.10 axles and a Torsen carrier in back. This model came with Bilsteins and BFG KO's; I've replaced them with the same when needed. Other than going to synthetic in the engine and transfer case, it's bone stock in the drivetrain department. Most of the upgrads are in the inside, and include adding heaters to the OEM bucket seats, auto dn/up windows, ALL LED lights outside and inside, sans the cluster, Alpine speakers and double DIN deck with Pandora and just about anything else you would want including the backup cam, Autodim mirror, Automatic headlights w/delay off, Double lighted visors with Homelink. Outside lighting includes 06+ tail light assembles and SilverStar Ultras. Akebono ceramic pads up front and Wagner ThermoQuiet shoes in back made a BIG difference over stock brake linings. Future plans include interior upgrades in currently in work, mostly in the amenity department and those being electrical. Looks like this Ranger is going to be around much longer than I planned; maybe that's not all so bad.
