Of topic on my own thread...

I had a 2003 Ford Ranger, great little truck. Had the 2.8 l V 6 Cologne Engine. It was two wheel drive and just ran. I bought a 1986 Ford Bronco2, had the 2.9 L EFI V6 Cologne engine. First wife was cut off by a truck and hit a tree head-on. The insurance company fixed it, I dumped it after 15k in repairs in 1987 (was only worth 17 k new). I wish that Ford would reintroduce a true Sport Truck like the Bronco. I know the Ranger is coming back in 2018, it will have a 3.2 l Power Stroke...That engine has pretty impressive torque

I remember the story behind that picture. He had almost pulled the sunken remains of the Titanic from the Ocean floor, when a RAM with Towing mirrors deployed smacked a pregnant Military vet mother walking in the back of the head and made her stumble into the path of the Ford. The Ford driver was concentrating on the Titanic and was startled to see the woman falling in his path. He took his foot off the pedal and unfortunately, dragged by the 1,000,000lb Titanic and lack of traction on the slippery road, pulled into the water.

It really could have been worse. RAM owners are so inconsiderate about them mirrors...

Update: the RAM owner later apologized for his actions claiming he was focused on towing a 45' Invisible Gooseneck hauling 2000 invisible hay bales. Weight a total of 30,000 none existent pounds (because that's the max load his dealer told him his 2011 RAM SRW Mega Cab Longhorn with the 68rfe transmission, could tow)...and that's why he had his tow mirrors out. He then claimed his truck had more than enough power to tow all the invisible weight due to the factory installed C sticker and 11" exhaust pipe. Plus, he was surprised to know that the mirrors in their folded out positions actually gave him a net gain of 200rwhp.

Wonder how he fit that load through a drive through.
