Re: Ranger delivery wait times

It would appear Linc is confident the new Ranger will suit his needs. I know of another fleet buyer who has a volume order in place and that buyer is ditching other makes for the new Ranger. cheers, Butch.

Re: New member from Queensland

G'day mate, Welcome to the forum.
Now that is a pretty slick solution to what a lot of folk have struggled with. I can imagine you with an old cut down m12 tool battery receiver bolted to your ute so you can just do a battery swap.

Re: Towing with adaptive cruise control

Aside from the question over whether the van brakes operate when cruise control slows down, the bigger issue is control. For me, towing with cruise control would only be advisable with a very light box trailer. With a bigger or heavier trailer I wouldn't use it. I want to know that when I lift my f...

Photo's that are available show a uni body vehicle. The "information" available is saying 'car based' so not expecting much load capacity. That said it probably will be a very nice town ute. Cheers, Butch.

Re: Regretful/ useless accessories or modifications

Fitting a canopy over the standard tub was a mistake. It is all serviceable and functions as intended . I should have dumped the tub and built tray /canopy back in 2013. My next ute will get a "butch built" tray and canopy. See a lot of mud tires that only have tar stuck on them :? .... :lol: :lol: ...
