    Hi All

    My name is Andre and i am from Boksburg

    I have always wanted a bakkie but could never give up having a fast flashy car but after hearing that our 2nd baby is on the way i have given up my toy (Stage 2 Focus ST) and bought a 2021 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4

    I have recently done the complimentary level 1 4x4 training from Ford and now i am hooked

    so I am hoping to learn a lot from here and being new to everything any and all advice would be greatly appreciated

    Tyres are very open to discussion and own requirements.. I suggest you read up on some of the many threads here.

    As for Muds.. In my opinion, they are a waste of money, noisy, and have bad road manners.. But that's me
