Subject: 4.0l SOHC

I think I have to make something clear. I brought that think with the SOHC
up. This engine has an iron block, aluminium heads, 205 HP. I had ask
somebody at Ford engine plant Cologne in what kind of cars the SOHC goes.
He said that it goes only in the Explorer not into the Ranger.
But I think with the combination of the SOHC and the new 5 speed automatic
transmission it isn't necessary to have an V8. But it would be nice.

Well, I have two suggestions for you:

1. Unsubscribe, and go check out toyota pages
2. READ THE SUBJECT LINES AND IGNORE THOSE YOU AREN'T INTERESTED
IN - it's not that hard.

Subject: Re: CB range

Don't want to continue this disgust of so-called "off-topic" posts, but so far,
every post I have seen has been relevant to Ford Rangers and the like. My
initial question was about where to mount a CB antenna on my FORD RANGER. After
it was installed, I got more info, and continue to do so. Thus the continuation
of the posts! The people on this list know more about other things, not just
Ford Rangers, and I have found their help very useful. If you want to feel the
way you do, should no onet ask about tires, exhaust, window tint, waxes, fuel,
or spark plugs because all those can be used on other inferior vehicles, and
therefore don't pertain to this list? No, I don't think so. Just because it's
your opinion, it doesn't mean we adapt to YOU. The same for me. I'm not
expecting anybody to do anything for me. I know that we have the most
informative group of Ford-natics here, and that someone knows the answer and/or
has experienced the same troubles and that they are willing to help each other.
If you have a dislike towards CBs, ignore them. And when I see a post titled
"4.0L SOHC" I'll ignore it instead of asking them not to talk about it because
it doesn't apply to me and my 2.3L.

*Steps down from soap box and proceeds to hack it to shreds so no one else can
use it! :) *

My wife and I just bought a 98 Explorer w/ the SOHC V-6. MAN, THIS THING
GOES! (We previously had a 95 Ranger X-cab w/ the 4.0 V-6.) Passing gear
on freeway ramps is like lighting an afterburner, and it gets 18-21 MPG
on the highway. We love it.

You wanna see what a real ranger should look like? Check out this
months "Truckin" magazine
the last story is a 97 extended cab yellow splash with a 5.0 V-8 mustang
cobra engine with a super
charger, i don't have all the stats but it pushes out around 385 horses,
it has the silver mustang cobra
r wheels, all around disc brakes, a cobra shifter, a 3" 4" drop, and
some smooth as hell replacement
ford emblems, check out the engine cover that has Ranger 5.0 instead of
mustang 5.0, and the side
....
