  1. Took a look at a Ranger today. You can do it without removing the tire. Turn the wheel all the way to the right, remove two push pins on the rubber shield, fold it up and you have full access to the filter. Push pins are the type with a philips head were you can screw the center out to remove. Has a nice drain tray to route the filter oil just behind the sway bar. Looks like it will be cleaner and easier to do than my Ecoboost F-150
  2. TFLtrucks has many towing videos on youtube. No Ranger towing videos yet.

    MAP changeover rumor thread

    July and December off
  5. I'll add my fuel to the fire. Talking to a usually reliable source at MAP, was told the Everest will be a future third vehicle for the plant. Will depend alot on the success of Ranger and Bronco. Hopefully this rings true. A rebadge Everest as a Bronco would be a waste. My hopes would be: Bronco goes back to it original roots. 2 and 4 door removable hardtop, removable doors not a deal breaker. Regular models front IFS suspension. Would be great for most who will just cruise to beach and never go off road. SVT version solid front axle and coilovers on all 4 corners. Will be what the true off roaders will want. To me that would be a great start to a Jeep Wrangler killer.

    MAP down weekz

    January 23 and 30 are the next tentatively scheduled weeks. Wouldn't be surprised if it will be 2 weeks on 2 weeks off for most of the year. Also hearing a good chance we will be off the whole months of July.

    Last I had heard was no more layoffs until October. A few bad months of sales could change that again thou.
