I too enjoyed the read, as Jeep, Ford just wanted to see how many they might sell.
Why make a prototype if you don't intend to sell them, someone must have thought it was viable at the time.
My '88 STX 4x, when converted to 5.0L was incredible, it ran so much smoother, was great to drive, mpg was around 21 most of the time, it was what I thought was the truck Ford should have made.
Too bad some of these idea didn't get to production but it is as it is.

Yup. And will continue to until the last rust flake falls from the last standing 2011.

interesting that they used a tr3550 for it and a base run of 15.1 at 94 tells us the suspension could use some love to hook up. Hate the explorer front end

I've seen people do this, in the name of modification it is cool but not exactly aesthetically pleasing.

"This Ranger's quarter-mile best of 15.1 seconds is quick enough to surprise Z28 drivers, but it's the stout 94.1-mph trap speed that shows the midrange and top-end go-power of this none-too-aero pickup."


I think a near 270-310hp Ranger would be nice but for my likes, not in the upper RPM ranges, and I don't believe the V8 is the complete answer either.  Some form of Turbo based inline4 would be more than sufficient if not a boosted straight 6.  I dare not get into the mentioning of weight penalties because a] the 5.0 doesn't weigh but what? 27-32lbs more than the 4.0L? b] what I would do grossly outweighs that. Hypocrite isn't my color.
