  1. Hey came here to get info on the new crate diesel from Cummins. Perfectly sized for the Ford Ranger and my 2003 EDGE 4x! Anyone have some insight, cost, any fitment concerns? I am very interested in the setup any little bit of info will help! I am from SoCal so there will be connect problems? I signed up for a call when the R2.8s are ready but not sure what is really happening ! Anyone hear anything ?
  2. I live in Alaska and I don't drive on the road an more, but I have a bronco 2 I bought for my grandson to drive me places. We decided to take the bronco off road for the afternoon to see what it actually could do. Since we only had street tires, I bought a set of snow chains to even up the score a little but that was all. This little v-6 made this thing jump up and move. We got to a big sand hill he wanted to try but I didn't think we would make it without off road tires, but we actually went up without even a strain, hardly even spun a tire. I was totally impressed what an off the showroom floor vehicle can do off road. We went on some 4 wheeler trails and we went everywhere they went. We didn't get into much mud but what we did go through it did fine except one time when both front wheel were off the ground and nothing is going to move in that. That wasn't the best part though, when we got back home I went to turn off the front hubs and discovered that we both had forgotten to engage the front hubs. We were in 2wd the whole time.
  3. The first new vehicle we ever bought was a 1985 Ford Bronco II. It had a unique option package with factory limited-slip units front and rear, a nifty 5-speed with overdrive and the 2.8L V-6—with carburetor. Handling was actually okay despite the higher center of gravity, Ford did a good job with the miniaturized Twin-Traction Beam front axle and the solid rear axle with ladder frame! Had we waited another year, the 2.9L MPI V-6 would have added both performance and fuel efficiency, yet the 2.8L is noted for its reliability and respectable torque. For the time, Ford put forth a great 4WD compact vehicle, and there are many who would agree that the Ranger and Bronco II did their job. I'd like to hear your views about these Ford pickups and SUVs. If you have troubleshooting or upgrade questions, I'll join that conversation, too!

  4. After years of private labeling the Japanese Mazda/Courier compact pickup, Ford introduced the Ranger pickup and Bronco II. Detroit's own design, scaled down versions of proven Ford truck technology from the era, these compact models earned a following. We purchased our '85 Bronco II new, our first new vehicle, and drove the San Diego County backcountry with a unique and rare option package: factory limited slip differentials both front and rear! The Bronco II originally boasted a 2.8L Capri (Ford Europe) V-6 with carburetor that would be replaced by the significantly more powerful 2.9L EFI/MPI engine in 1986. Later 4.0L V-6 and V-8 SUV models benefited from the Bronco II and Ranger technology, and evolved components suited Ford and Mercury SUVs with intermediate wheelbases...The Ford compact 4x4 community meets here and shares technology, projects and experiences!—Moses Ludel
