    Hi im new to the forum because i would like to learn about and get a ranger, i have a 94 bronco with a 5.8l 351 now, the reason im willing to give up all this power is because i cant put my quad in the back. i like rangers and i like how they look on 33s, but i also have a bass boat to tow (tracker pro team 170) the only thing that is holding me back from a ranger is that i dont really have enough money to get one with a 4.0 so i would prolly be getting a 3.0 and i dont no if that has enough power to tow my boat, espessialy with 33s under it.if you no the towing capacity of like a 2000 or 99 ranger please post. if any one has any thoughts or suggestions feel free to post them thanks

    I would honestly hold back and wait to get a ranger with the 4.0 and with at least 3.73 gears but preferably 4.10's because then with 33's and towing a boat it would still leave you with some power, the 3.0 isn't great performance and fuel mileage is close on them both.

    They started putting 4.0's in around 90 or 91, but 91 and 92's sometimes would develop a cracked head. There's a lot of people out there with well over 200k on their 4.0's
