I have the same problem with my 99 ranger.  I have tried to take it off
before to fit my K&N better but I can figure it out either.  I just have my
K&N laying in the bottom half off the box.

Subject: Question about Shocks for a 2000 Ranger

I just bought a New/Used 2000 Ranger, ( New to me, but used with 18,000 Miles on it ).  I really don't like the way the Range tends to "float" down the road with it's current shocks.  It almost feels like the wheels are losing contact with the ground on some of the bumpy roads I drive on everyday.  I don't like the feeling of being on board a boat on the ocean going through a series of small waves.  I want the ride to be stiffer and react to the bumps with some authority.  Actually I want the thing to ride like a truck, not a luxury car.  My other vehicles include a 66 F-100, 74 F-250 and an 86 Bronco II, these trucks feel like trucks when you hit a bump on the road.

Has anyone replaced the shocks on their Range yet?  If you have, which shocks did you put on and did it make the ride stiffer and solid??

Thanks!

Has anyone put an after market Cat-Back Exhaust system on their Ranger??  If you did, did it help the performance of the engine any?  Did it change the way your truck sounds?  If so, how does it sound now??

Thanks

I have a 99 Ranger with a flowmaster cat back system and a K&N air filter.
My truck sounds like a tough V8, I highly recommend it.  Performance.....not
much better, but a little.  Sounds good though!

Go to http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.crutchfield.com/ and click on What Fits My Car? and it
will take you to a page to select year, make, model and options. They
will then show you a list of stereos that will fit and they carry all
major brands. They also have installation kits so that it is a plug and
go installation instead of cutting and trying to match wires.
On the bottom of the main page, there is also a link to order a free
catalog.

Ford Truck Enthusiasts will be at the upcoming SEMA show
in Las Vegas, Nevada. We will be there from Wednesday,
November 1 to Saturday, November 4. If you plan to attend
the SEMA show (its for automotive aftermarket professionals),
let me know so we can meet during the week.

In addition to the show, we'll be in Vegas all day Saturday
and would like to meet some of the users for lunch! Let me
know and we'll make plans.

I'll be giving free FTE t-shirts to any user I meet there,
while supplies last!

Dear Keith,

1. I'll trade with you.  Mine bounces around the New Orleans streets like a
Conestoga wagon.

2. I would definitely check to see if the shocks are original.

Best Regards,

I am in process of rebuilding a 302 for my Ranger. I am going to use a c-4
transmission, B&M mega shifter and other various bits and pieces. I have an
idea of what needs to be done.

What is the most cost effective way to install this thing? I have a radiator
that will work. What about mounts and such?

Thanks,

Chris
