      I removed "any" from my statement. However I would think most orders are going to fall outside of those ineligibilities.

      Hmm. That HP number is a little less than I expected.

      Agreed, but with so much after market support, it's nothing a programer can't fix.

      Also think they are under rating it on purpose. But don't forget you still have a 10 speed.

      It’s the same engine in the explorer that puts out 280. 310 in the mustang. But 270 is plenty and should be more reliable. My last explorer had 240 and my FJ was 260 and both had power to spare. And they are both much heavier.

      Saw some more specs today. The Ranger will have a better crawl ratio then JP:eek:

      New 10speed 1st gear : 4.69
      Transfer case 4lo : 2.72
      Rear axle ratio: 3.73

      48 to 1 crawl ratio.

      JP is only 31 to 1
      Stock Explorer would be about 23 to 1

      Of course now that I look at it...my super duty has a better crawl ratio then JP at 38 to 1...lol


      In other news the new Ranger is designed to be flat towed behind a motorhome. It actually has a setting for it and instructions in the manual:thumbsup:

      So what does everyone think about towing an 18 foot camping trailer with this? Probably about 5000lbs fully loaded. I know the specs say ok. But what about real life?

      Actually my plan is to tow the Navajo on a flat bed when it's done to the trails. That will probably be close to maxing it out, but we'll see. Time will tell. I know it will probably need some mods for more power, and as long as it's not all the time it should be ok, as the trans should be fine as it's the same as a F150 trans. Not sure on the rear axle.

      Now that said....this is what could have killed my trans and rear end in my '05 f -150 I had. I towed at max with a programer. I can't confirm that however, because they went out a month after I sold it. Who knows what the guy after me did with it.
