Any advice for a Ranger?

Started by Ben D. Last reply by Ben D Dec 2, 2015. 6 Replies

I got my first truck just over 6 months ago.  It's an 05 Ford Ranger.  Problem is, it is literally the absolute base model.  No power windows or locks, nothing on the front or rear, it does not have…Continue

Let's jump right into the debate. Which is the best men? Chevy, Ford, Dodge or Toyata? My vote is Chevy. Never had a Dodge but every damn Ford pickup I had I was always working on it. My Chevys have…Continue

Hi Pale Horse - yes he was young, in his 40's.

He was friends with me on Facebook when I noticed posts from his relatives that he had passed away in his sleep.  They had some fundraisers for the funeral and for his two children.  It was never followed up on exactly what happened, but I think it was a heart attack from what I remember.

If I may be so bold as to ask, how did he die? He seemed young.

FYI - The originator of this group Dave Santuomo passed away December 2, 2013.  RIP my friend.

2006 Toyota Tundra here.  I had a small '95 Nissan truck, but the engine blew at 222k miles.  Love the Tundra and it's size, bigger is definitely better.

I'm a Chevy and Ford man. Growing up, my dad had a 1989 Ranger 4x4 with a wooden box (because the old one rusted away) and my grandfather had a 1994/95 F350. My first vehicle was a 1994 Chevy S10 Blazer 4x4, and my current vehicle is a 2003 Chevy S10 LS, crewcab, 4x4...She's my baby.

Chevy all the way. In 2003 I worked for a car rental place in the country and drove the new Titan, F-150, Silverado, and Ram at one time or another and I loved the Chevy. Loved it so much, I bought my first truck last year: a 2003 Silverado. Compared to the others I like the steering, seats, bed height, and looks of the Chevy. Next truck I buy will be a 4x4, though, because this truck definitely has its limits but the back country is calling my name.

you left our GMC Dave, course it's pretty much the same as Chevy. Mine's an 86 Sierra Classic that my father gave to me shortly before he died.

50 gallon water heater heats 25 gallons

Brand new 50 gallon water heater still can't fill a standard sized tub, but starts giving tepid water at 25 gals or so.  Service call couldn't find a problem.  I'm beginning to wonder if I'm crazy to expect a hot bath,  or if there's a spell in the house.  Any idea what's wrong?   I'm planning to call the installer again and if he can't fix it have him take it out...but will the next be better?  it has to be the heater, right?See More
