Hey all,

I though you'd all like to know that I FINALLY have pricing for the
1999s. If anyone wants a quote or some information, just write to me.

Bryce,

This mailing list just started so it will be a little slow for a few
weeks. It'll pick up a bit.

Hey all,

I was just wondering what you all think of the '98 Rangers looks and
new suspension. I have one and personally love the new look, but I
painted the grille to match the truck and that GREATLY improved the
looks. The suspension seems stiffer than my '95, so I think it was
an overall great change.

Well, for one thing: AOL, the worst (and possibly most unreliable)
Internet provider, has email problems (again). We've had over 200
bounces today. I'm sure that this accounts for a lot of the
inactivity.

Subject: question for the CBer's out there...

I just installed my CB in my '97 Ranger. It works good but I'm getting a
lot of RF noise from certian componants on the truck. Mostly I feel that
the fuel pump is giving out RF noise the most, but the wipers, window
washer motor and 4x4 system are also giving off some RF noise. I can live
with all the noise but the fuel pump, since it is the only on that runs
constantly. I have checked and regrounded the unit (this cleared up other
electrical noise I was getting that was not being radiated) I have also
tried differant antenna (in various positions) and coax cable. My system
is a Midland 77-113 Weaterh Max II radio with a 15' coax to a 3' fiberglass
top loaded antenna mounted behind the cab on the drivers side. I there
anything I can do?

Also, does anyone know how to make this radio tune in the same channel when
I power it on?...if I leave it off for any period of time, it reverts back
to channel 9 on power up.

Can't help you with the RF, except that my friend has same model on a 94 and
doesn't get it - 12' coax to 24" through the glass. We have never been able
to figure out how to keep the radio locked in to a channel on power off, but
if someone does, I'd a prreciate it too. Tx,

I have a 91Explorer with a chronic power steering leak. The pump seems
to run dry now after every 30 miles or so. The high pressure hose has
been replaced but that did nothing. The last time I brought it to the
shop they swore they couldn't see the leak. Is it a good bet that the
problem is in the steering gear?
There is a rebuild kit available - has anyone had any experience with
having one rebuilt? There are a couple of TSB's for the power steering
on this vehicle - would someone who has access be willing to provide me
with a copy?

I have a 98 and I'm slowly getting used to the styling, although the huge
wheel wells make the standard tires look ugly. Repainting the black grille
to match the white body would probably help. Gas mileage with the 3.0/
automatic has been awful, 12-19 mpg. To add insult to injury, Ford has
pped the price by $1250 since I bought mine, but is unwilling to offer
this rebate or some other compensation to me. I was thinking of trading up
to a super duty diesel in a couple years, but the way they've treated me I
will probably never by another Ford again.
