Does anybody have a site with a pic or two of the 4 door version? It
doesn't really appeal to me, but maybe after I saw it it might.

I have a 95 Ranger,bought a set of 98 cobra wheels {17x8},they fit the rear just
fine but won't clear the end of the hub and and dust cap on the front, they need
about 1/2 in. to clear and be able to get the center cap on. Has anyone used wheel
spacers or adapters on the front?Any suggestions? thanks. Jeremy

Subject: Casey Vandor gas mileage question

I have a '98 SC 4x4 with a 4.0L, 3.73LS rearend, and off-road package.
Although I have a manual tranny I don't think the following gas mileage
figures would've been much different with an auto.

city driving: 15mph
highway driving: around 18mph

If I use oxygenated gasoline, I am finding that my highway mileage drops
a few mph.

In a message dated 98-03-20 20:14:54 EST, you write:

Nitro's >>

Isn't NITRO actually a racing fuel originally used by dry cleaners as a
cleaning solvent?
NITROUS is nitrous oxide...a gas composed of nitrous and oxygen.
As far as F#kin up your engine, so would any high-hp power adder such as a
turbo or supercharger.
