    I certainly would not tell you which to buy but if you go with the Ranger I can give you some information. The 3.0L engine is very durable but many people feel they are low on power. They get only...

    I have never needed one in the more than 35 years of off-roading. I didn't carry one until about 5 years ago and got it then only because it was a requirement for the group I was going with. I can...

    Have you tried Redneck Trailer Supplies? I got an axle for my race car trailer there. They seem to be able to accommodate pretty much what you need at least they did for me.

    I didn't realize this is a common problem. I have been using mine for 25 years and they are still intact. Now, I feel like they will fail the next time I use them. I have a brother living in...

    It is safe to run wide tires on narrow rims but over time you might get some unusual wear on them. I ran 11.5" wide tires on my 7" wide wheels and after about 25K miles I notice uneven wear like...

    The problem with add-a-leaf spring is, they are always there. When you are not towing and there is no weight in the rear, the rear is very stiff and you can feel it in the ride. I also run air bags...

    stingray, I am interested but it looks like you need to remove it from the receiver to open the tail gate. Is that much of a problem? Does it fit snug in the receiver so it doesn't bounce around...

    Ok thanks. I went on the Rudd website to see if the 2533 would fit my 10.5x33-15 tires. Unfortunately, only the 2532 will fit my tires.

    That is very close in size to the one that is on my Ranger with a 6 foot bed. Your Wildernest should fit any small pickup with a 6 foot bed.
