I just purchased my 2001 4.0 V6 SOHC 4X4 Ford Ranger and have a Snow-Way plow system on my To-Do list. I have done extensive research on using Rangers to plow and found overall not a bad idea..... Take it easy on the tranny and don't slam into things going 15 mph and your all right.
Snow-Way spec sheets says put a 18" on it but I REALLY want to go with the 24" series. According to a Snow-Way Rep., some owners have put the 24" on them without problems.
Anyone out there put a Snow-Way on a Ranger and how did it perform. I read a thread regarding (Timbrens), is this something I should install? I looked at the front end of my Ranger and it doesn't have any springs, just a shock and torsion bar. How do you beef something like that up?
Any help is appreciated!
P.S. - I wanted a F-350 but have to wait a few years for the BIZ to grow yet. I want to make this Ranger do "ALL IT CAN DO" until then. It pulls my 3000# trailer like nothing and the 4.0’s have a lot of SNOT!
