Hey guys, I just joined up to this site. I have a huge road trip planned for Xmas. I would like to invite everyone to toss their advice, tips and tricks my way regarding the 2011 Ranger on long hauls. Last January the PNW ice storms were so intolerable I ran my Ranger from WA State to Lafayette LA for a breather. I had no problems. It's at 150mi on the odo now. Just checking in to hear if you have a concern about it having reached the 150 mark before a trip. I plan on leaving early Dec heading to Florida to see the older son. I bought new wheels n all weather tires, 2 sizes up, have the jack & wrench, looking for a canopy for our stuff, (younger son & I). Will take along a set of cables. Got oil changed. A canopy for a 2011, is tough to find, I'm learning. Got the sand bags in the back.... I'm semi retired, but then have been trucking the I-5 for the past 4 yrs. So I know what to expect making a run for SoCal in Dec. Ashland OR mm 06. hahaha. Everyones' favorite wipeout. Anyway I'm all ears! Thx much!
