"I bought it for work, hauling heavy loads 1,500 or more. I change to Monroe sensatrac shocks gas , better ride, and Handel the heaver loads this is what the 4x4 ranger needs , the water inlet or where thermostat is, if it over heats replace with the kit, not just the thermostat . I use a 192 or 190 thermostat . I put ten ply tire`s mud& snow with the soft center on the tire, that tire cushion the ride. Big O tire has them. there on sale now $123.00 a peace 0/22/2015, not the mud or heavy lug traction tires , ride is great, did not act like a shot wheel base pick up. Good visibility, I like better then my Buick limited to drive, more fun easy handling and excellent turning radius. all a round great 4x4. I have the 6 ft. bed, ok let tail gat down to Carrie play wood etc.. I wish it was 4 wide between fender wells, oh well can't everything?
