We’re looking at expanding and rejuvenating these rooms so my question is open to all, what are your ideas?
If you have any ideas to help boost discussion and the community feel of the place, then please reply to this thread.

I'll start the ball rolling by...

Just wondering... Should the oil be changed at the first 3000km inspection on a 3.2 diesel Ranger.

Looking at getting a bullbar for our PX ranger XLT, we had a near miss with a big kangaroo a couple of nights back so I think we need something and then we will have somewhere to mount our driving lights aswell, any recomendations would be good. Photos would be a bonus.
I had the dreaded clicking today from my Aircon/heater control settings so I visited my local dealer today to get it checked out.
It was immediately booked in for next Monday as it has become a Recall issue for the HAVC.
I was told Ford has just released the Recall from today so I imagine all...
PX Workshop Manual
Haven't been doing much posting as the Wildtrak keeps dragging me outside to do things.
Ford thoughtfully place a heavy-duty recovery point on the front of the Ranger but inexplicably there doesn't seem to be one on the rear (as if anticipating the Ranger would require recovery but...
Hi! I have a 2 inch suspension lift in my truck and would like to put 2 inch body blocks in also. has anyone done this? Are there any dramas in doing it?

The screen on my 2012 Wildtrak is blank white. It goes black when the car is locked - unlock and it just stays blank. The radio works and changes stations but I cannot show any readings on the screen. Might it just be a fuse, or something more major?
Thanks in anticipation.
My PX Ranger 2011 is using quite a considerable amount of water/coolant. I just finished a trip to the cape and worked out I put back into, over the 5000 km trip, approx 8 L of water. No low coolant light comes on and I see no changes in temp. Although if there is no coolant, it won't register...

Has anyone been able to update their PX Sat Nav SD Card? If so can they please share with us how they did this. I have found the SD Card that comes with the vehicle is a little outdated (1-2 years) as it doesn't have some newer roads and is not up to date with roundabouts and one way streets. Its...

Hi everyone, I've noted since owning my XLT PX that under mild (and I stress MILD) acceleration the level of rear wheel spin from a stationary position. This is occurring on cement/bitumen, and does it every time you pull out either from a parallel parking slot or from a driveway to merge into...

Hello there guys,
I looking for what weight oil ford recommends for the new 2.2lt rangers? For the life of me I can't find this info anywhere?

Just putting it out there again to see if any more are having suspension issues like leaning to one side, not sitting level, wheel arch height, spring sagging, I know I am not the only one out there being told by ford that this is within specs.
Is there any one out there that can tell me if there is any difference specificaly in the IFS set up between the Thai and US Rangers? I've been doing some research and dreaming of IFS upgrades and in the states they can do 4" lifts and don't seem to have any issues with CV angles. I have...
