Headlights are superb, from my 3,000 feedback post:


On visibility - it's just fine out side and front. I think seems even better after from lower ride height of the Flex. Rear window is bit tight but not enough to be significantly bothersome.



I'm doing in low 20's on MPG, but I do a lot of city driving and when I'm on the freeway I have a heavy foot (especially in the Dakotas with the 80mph limits.)
On the step bars, I am going to take back what I said earlier. The height of the rocker is similar to the F150. Asked my wife about her thoughts on the step bars for getting in/out (she's only 5'4"). She says they're definitely a necessity.
Thanks for answering my questions. I actually did take one for a spin last week, a 4wd Super cab. I was impressed by it. I felt the ride height was lower than my '150, but the test truck was an XL with the smaller 16" wheels. I would probably get an STX which I know comes on 17's. Not sure how much of a difference that makes. Visibility seemed pretty good on that day, in those conditions. Don't know about back-up lights/headlights; it was daylight. Although I probably could have had the salesman throw it in reverse while I stand behind it I'm sure that wouldn't be his first dumb question of the day.

Not to highjack the thread ... Same issue on my F150. It seems to me there is likely an aftermarket light that fits into the trailer hitch and plugs into the trailer adapter that could fix this problem. Has anyone seen anything like this?

Thanks in advance.

I have this on my 150, I got %15 off when they introduced these with a preorder. Works great on the 150, no reason it wouldn't on the Ranger.
