    Thanks guys, I'm one of the first for sure. Dealer had to hide it when it came in, because they could have sold it 10 times over. They only had 1 truck in stock and it was already sold, but the customer could not take delivery, because they didn't have another to display. Mine I did a special pre order back in September.

    Love the 10 speed, you don't feel any of the shifts, it's seamless. In LA traffic I'm already averaging 18+ mpg and it's not even broken in at 150 miles on it right now.

    Very cool truck Steve.

    Can I see the bed and tailgate please?

    Edit, I would also like to see the workings of the driveline and suspension, you know, the good stuff if you can .

    18mpg in LA traffic?! This ranger might just destroy the competition in real world gas mileage. Truck looks great, enjoy it :burnout:

    Nice! April 14 for mine. I hear Rough Country is about to put out a lift. There is a video on YouTube showing a mean looking truck with the lift. Same color as yours.

    Yes, RC has a spacer lift out, and I really want to throw it on and some 32-33's but I think I'm going to hold off till I ware the tires out. I did order a tonneau cover for it though.

    Need to order the brake controller too, but a little bit at a time.;)

    It sounds like they have a 3 1/2 in lift coming soon. I see the spacer leveling kit on their website. Both would add some attitude! The trailer brake controller is $350 installed. At least that’s what I was quoted. Not sure if I’ll spring for that. Seems a little steep.

    That's only a few hundred less than my Silverado.

    Yeap, and that's 7500lbs without any equalizer hitch needed. This thing weights about 4400lbs. It's closer in size to the 1/2 tons of 20 years ago.

    So let the Mods begin:D

    I order a tonneau cover, but because the truck is so new, they aren't really available yet. I was told mine would not ship till April. So I found one on CL used for a Chevy Colorado for $150. Little trimming to the mounts and spacing for the width and BAM, just saved my self about $850, and I didn't even need to swich to Geico.:p

    Also installed a tinted LED 3rd brake light which turns out to be the same light as '15+ F150's I figured out.

    [​IMG]


    Also added yellow tint to my fog lights, upgraded the headlight bulbs to a whiter light, and transferred the plate over from the F250 till the Navajo is done.

    [​IMG]

    Future plans include, bed lights, maybe the Ranger letter inserts on the gate and grill and still thinking about the leveling lift for 32-33's
