    Offical: Post your ST pics

    Couple of questions: Are those the SHO wheels? What year? If so I was under the impression the bore size was smaller on the Taurus (63mm) than on the ST (70mm). Any modifications for that fit? Did you have to use the spacer because of the width of the tire or was the rim hitting the...

    Blacking out my grill with Plasti Dip.

    @boomer4d The only prep work I did was wash the grill down and dry it with a microfiber cloth. I also made sure the day didn't have high humidity. @hunt1moore The only issue is a bubble that formed on the lip where a stone had hit it before this project. Other than that it's holding up very...

    Haven't got a clue.....

    The message is normal. When you turn the key before starting the engine, it detects a low voltage thus why you get the message. When you completely turn the key to the point where the engine starts, the voltage is back to normal parameters and the message turns off. If it happens while...

    Who else wants the "World" Ford Ranger...

    and rename it Sport Trac. Hearing the news a while back that Ford discontinued the Sport Trac and Ranger makes me sad Those wheels are Ford OEM which look like the Adrenalin wheels. They are from the last gen Ford Ranger Wildtrak that was not very good looking. This truck...

    Blacking out my grill with Plasti Dip.

    There was the Ironman Edition that came with the black grill. I've see it on a black ST and it looks awesome.

    A/c problem

    Wait... you're right, I was buzzing when I posted this and wasn't thinking straight. Sober now and thinking about it, soapy solution might be bad for the engine. I would use something that burns like brake cleaner. Listen for a jump in the idle's and that's where you're leak will be.

    A/c problem

    Sounds like you got a vacuum leak. Mix soap and water, then use a spray bottle to spray it on your vacuum lines. Small bubbles will let you know if you got a leak.

    Can anybody guess the Tire/Wheel Size?

    I'm wondering if anybody can figure out the Tire/Wheel size on the ST below. I know the wheels at V-Tec Raptors on Nittos. I'm saving to get these wheels and a similar tire. Thanks.

    Question about changing ST sound system

    Upgrading your door speakers is very easy. I switched out mine two months ago. Headunit: JVC KD-R610 Amp: MTX RTP-202 (150 watt) Sub: 8" Bazooka (fits in the back seat perfectly) Door Speakers: Sony Xplōd XS-GT5727A I bought the headunit, sub, and door speakers from Crutchfield with...

    Blacking out my grill with Plasti Dip.

    I was thinking about "dipping" the step bars this spring, I might even dip the wheels too. I've been looking for some good deals on smoked headlight housings so if you find any let me know. This will probably be a spring project. In the meantime here's some more pics. I went to the car wash...

    Blacking out my grill with Plasti Dip.

    I've been researching for a while on how to black out my grill. The two options I found was to sand it down and paint it or buy an Ironman grill. Due to $$ I kept looking for other options. Then I found Plasti Dip, a rubberized coating. Home Depot has Plasti Dip so I decided to give it try...

    Wheel Noise

    +1 on the brakes. Mine does that sometimes. Put some oil on the disks to stop the squeaky noise. DO NOT DO THAT!:)

    Gear Shift Stuck in Park

    My ST has the same problem. Warranty is now out and there are no recalls for my VIN. When I had warranty the dealership were a bunch of dicks. I told them about the TSB and said I was lying. So I pulled a print out of my pocket and showed them. I asked if they could come out and see the...

    Thinking about buying a 2007 v6 limited

    Miles too high for the price. I got my 07 ST XLT last August for $17,000 with 21,000 miles. Then again it's not the limited version.

    2007 Sport Trac is difficult to shift out of park.

    My 2007 also has the same problem. I'm out of warranty and wanting to be cheap I fixed(Youtube Link for more info) it myself. Note that doing what I did to "fix" it will disable your "I need to press the brake pedal to **** out of park" feature. :D

    New member with a bull bar question.

    I've been thinking of buying one from Truck Champ, and you can get 10% off with the coupon code pc33. I'm tempted right now but I'm probably gonna wait until my I get my grill painted black so I can get a black bull bar.

    Adrenalin wheel problem!!

    Here are my wheels and they are not the Adrenalin type. Left rear wheel. Right rear wheel. Front left wheel. I'm probably going to get some silver or machined aftermarket wheels. The only thing I'm worried about is the road salt during winter. So right now I'm undecided on what to do after I...

    Adrenalin wheel problem!!

    16 inch My 2007 XLT 16 inch wheels have the same marks. I'm out of warranty but will still post some pics if anybody wants to see them. I'm thinking of getting aftermarket non-chrome wheels but I'm scared of dropping lots of cash and then have them get ruined my the winter salt.

    Wheel Sensor Compatibility

    Interesting..... So my sensors might work on that wheel. Just got to make sure to not use the valve sensors from the 2011 wheels.

    Wheel Sensor Compatibility

    I got a buddy that wants to sell me his 2011 Ford Explorer 20 inch wheels and tires for a great price. The only problem I can think of is the wheel sensors. Would his wheel sensors be compatible with my 2007 XLT? Has anybody have some experience with this. Thanks

    Cabin air filter

    No Cabin Filter Ford did not equip any Sport Trac with a cabin filter.

    Cannot Shift Out Of Park - Options?

    I guess if it gets really bad I'm just going to disable the soleniod. Im the only one who drives the ST so I'm not worried if that saftey mecanism is disabled. I'm just going to take my time searching for somebody that can fix it a reasonable price. Thanks for your reply.

    Cannot Shift Out Of Park - Options?

    By disengage do you mean disable it? If so are there any side effects by doing that? By the way here is a video of what its doing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ektF1jXX_sc&feature=youtube_gdata_player if you look at the first 25 seconds you can see what talking about. Pay attention closely...

    Cannot Shift Out Of Park - Options?

    I'm having some problems shifting out of park (TSB-07-12-9) on my 2007 XLT Sport Trac. I have a few weeks left on the drive-train warranty but the Ford dealership in town says it won't be covered. Over the phone the people at the dealership have been dicks. They told me it would take an hour...

    cabin filter on a 08 sport trac

    I know what you mean. They don't even include daylight driving lights as standard equipment on all Ford models. Doesn't make sense since Chevrolet does include a cabin filter and daylight driving lights on most of their models. I guess it would make sense not to include a cabin filter on base...

    cabin filter on a 08 sport trac

    I don't think XLT comes equipped with cabin filter. Apparently Ford does not install it as standard equipment. I was bummed out when I found this out.
