#63 of 1143 POWER STEERING - FORD RANGER XL
Aug 11, 2000 (6:16 pm)
Dear all -
I have a 1994 Ford Ranger XL pickup. This truck,
unlike the XLT version, does NOT have power
steering. What would it take for me to put the
power steering into my truck? The chassis is
exactly the same from the XL to the XLT, and so is
the 2.3 liter engine.
Can I get the parts from a junk yard? If so, what
do I need? How much do you think it would cost
for me to get a mechanic to install the parts once
I get them?
Thanks for any help you can provide.

I'm looking to buy a 2000 Ford Ranger with
the Off-Road package, Automatic, 4.0L V6,
Flarestyle, etc. I've been offered $100 over
invoice, and on top of that, Ford will rebate
$500 with 3.9% finance rate.
My question: Is $100 over invoice a good
price for the Ford Ranger at this time of the
year, with the 2001 model coming out soon?
Thanks in advance!

Could I suggest you go here:
or maybe the main board which you can access from there.
I think as a minimum you would need a whole new steering setup, a pump and bracket and the lines. You may need new inner tie rod ends and perhaps a new steering column.
But check out that site, post the question and see what the people say. That board is where guys post info on modified suspensions, engine swaps, header/ehaust swaps etc.
Give it a try, it is a good site for Ranger info.

$100 over invoice sounds pretty darn good to me. What is the total price before taxes? In 1998 I paid 19.6K for a similar truck to yours.. Granted, I paid cash this probably made somewhat of a difference..

Invoice price was $22,788, so my "base" price
before taxes and rebates is $22,888. With
the $500 rebate, it will be $22,388.
What upsetted me to walk out on them was that
they advertised it for $1500 below invoice,
and I'm still paying above invoice. I also
really wanted Ford to offer the 0.9% financing
like they are doing for other cars.

I thought Ford was giving a $1500 rebate on Ranger

The rebate deal is either $1500 or
$500 & 3.9% financing. I want the
good financing deal.

In case you didn't know, Edmund's 2001 Ford Ranger Review, by By Liz Kim is now available. Let us know what you think.
As for Ford Ranger incentives/rebates, look for that information right here in Edmunds's Current Incentives and Rebates section.

Onegranite, I have stories too. I'll tell you the worst in a nutshell....my 1998 Ranger 4.0 was so bad that Ford was forced to buy it back from me. Not replace parts, not give me a new motor, not fix anything - but BUY IT BACK. I went to arbitration and won and they gave me avery red cent back that paid for the truck. The list of probelms was endless.
