Cheers.

Re: Pin 9 Fuse location 2021 ranger

Hi Guys Wondering if someone can help me locate the fuse for the 9 pin constant power on my 2021 ranger wildtrak trailer plug , Is this a PX3 or the "Next Gen" model? When I got my PX3 it came with dealer fitted (and presumably Ford supplied) towbar package with a 12 pin plug. Only pins 1-7 were ac...

SUV Monstrosities that tax payers fund (sic).

Saw this article in the paper today. Not surprisingly the author got a LOT of pushback in the comments section. https://www.theage.com.au/politics/federal/hate-all-the-monster-utes-on-our-streets-your-tax-dollars-helped-pay-for-them-20231022-p5ee5v.html It's probably paywalled, but non-subscribers c...

Re: Sport V6 or Wildtrak Bi-turbo?

I'd go with the V6. Mate traded his bi-turbo in one one. Reckons it's heaps better, especially if you're towing heavy loads.

I'd love to get one but they're as rare as rocking horse doo-doo.

Re: Wiring a CB

It looks rough as bags but I extended the power lead and connected a ciggy lighter plug to it, ran it under the centre console and plugged it into the rear power outlet. Does the job.

Re: Finally upgraged to a new ranger!

Nice rig.

When you take photos can you do one of the dash, please? I hear that the newer models have a different layout. And have a look at what the centre display shows.

Thanks.

Re: Transmission Temps How low is to Low

Here's one opinion on ATF temps.

I suppose that you'd need to refer to the ATF supplier's datasheet and the specs on the fluid in question.

Mostly around town and to work and back (10km there on 100 and 80 kay roads). I use an iOS app called Road Trip to record f...

Re: Ranger 3.2 litre vs 2 litre tow test.

That was an interesting video. I watched it before I made my decision to go with the 3.2 engined Wildtrak. A couple of interesting points. Where they clipped the brakeaway lanyard - on one of the safety chains. Aren't they supposed to be affixed to somewhere separate to the towbar assembly? No towin...

New Wildtrak Owner to Be

Main duties will be general go-to-work vehicle, towing a 2.4t caravan and maybe going bush. I look forward to reading everyone's experiences with this vehicl...
