F-150s and Super Duties use a bottle jack that Iím sure would lift a decent load in the bed. If I go on a road trip I bring a floor jack, compressor, plug kit..etc just to be sure Iím prepared.

That said the only flats ive got have been in my driveway lol

Mine too but I don't want to be argumentative. My daughter's 2018 did too because I had to make her prove to me that she could change her spare before heading off to Texas.

well dang, I could very well be wrong, I don't have my f150 or I would look. I know our old 03 had a bottle jack and every super duty that comes through our shop does also, so a good bit of assumption on my part.

I don't really mind that much, but discussing the jacks that come in an F150 is a crazy tangent for a thread that I started about strong sales of the new Ranger.... I have made a rule for myself that I will not allow myself to post after I've had more than 2 drinks

100% agreed haha

back on topic though, I spoke with one of the fleet guys I work with, he offered to let us take the next new Ranger that arrives home overnight to check it out. Looks like in the next few weeks they should have more in within a few weeks.

If you ever see a flurry of posts from me on a friday night, I'm probably enjoying several beverages . . . .

You're the moderator, dude ...I obviously like to talk also and my real interest in the Ranger is its relationship to the new Bronco, which *could* be a vehicle I would buy. And I have a genuine interest in success of the Wayne, MI plant because it employs my neighbors and impacts the economics of the Detroit area....I grew up in a UAW household and my wife was IBEW at Detroit Public TV for 40 years. It's all good, and you are a valuable resource and friend here on the forum.

Iím in the market for a replacement to my Ď07 Ranger and have been looking at all the options.

when I can get a GMC Canyon all terrain leather for $38K and the equivalent Ranger Larriat FX4 is asking $45k it makes it hard to justify imho.

Even though this Ranger is viewed as an older vehicle, the frame and front end are all new for North America/US. As is the engine and transmission and differentials. So therefore, the platform is new, but the cab and bed are carry overs. So, in my opinion, this truck is a beta test mule for sale to the public. The chassis will carry over to the "next generation" with little or no changes while the sheetmetal and options content will change.

I suspect the true sale prices will be a lot closer after initial demand is soaked up and dealer lots fill up with them, maybe near the end of this year. The MSRP of those two vehicles is pretty close, so it's just a matter of discounts, which are gong to be tiny on the new model ranger. If you have to buy today, then that's a big deal, but if you are patient, the difference will be very small.

Absolutely agree on this. At the time it was introduced, the PT Cruiser was bringing in MORE than list price because it was "cool and new"... I am quite sure that the Ranger will be a more popular and better vehicle than the PT Cruiser in the long run so it won't discount *quite* as deeply, but the "newness factor" is currently at play.

It can be expensive to be the first kid on the block with a new toy and if you need to buy today, other brands of smaller trucks will probably be a better deal. (And in fact, those other brands may be discounting MORE than usual to try and cannibalize Ranger sales while they can.) If you want the best possible deal, try to get a "friends and family" discount through a Ford employee, or using the Costco buying service, but you will still be paying more now than later this year because I'm sure rebates are either small or non-existent.

George

I've received prices on two Lariats very close in spec with a msrp of 44,750 and pricing I was able to get through my fleet contracts was right around 42,200 as there are no incentives or rebates yet.
