TRS 20th Anniversary Fundraiser

$460 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 11 people in 25 days was created in 1999, and will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2019. was created at a time when there wasn't any other Ford Ranger sites for offroad enthusiasts. To this day, it remains not only the oldest Ford Ranger website, but is still 'The Ultimate Ranger Resource'.  It is also still privately owned by myself (James Oaks), a Ford Ranger enthusiast.

Unlike most enthusiast websites, is more than just a discussion forum. The site also offers featured vehicle articles to help inspire other Ford Ranger enthusiasts, and there is a broad ‘How-To’ (Tech) library that shares contributions from numerous readers over the years. This wealth of resources results in Ford Ranger owners being referred to by other automotive websites. (TRS) has completed a 'Banner Across America' twice, where a TRS banner was relayed from one end of the country to the other by forum members. Each member that received the banner signed it with a permanent marker, and posted photos of its progress online. The first time we did this, we went from the Atlantic Ocean, to the Gulf of Mexico, and ended at the Pacific Ocean. The second time we did it, we went from Alaska to Key West Florida. I don't know of any other forum community that has ever accomplished similar feats. has hosted spring and fall trail rides, and our spring 2003 trail ride (Spring Ranger Round-Up) was featured in the October/November issue of Off-Road Adventures Magazine. Off-Road Adventures Magazine also featured our 2004 Snowball run in the January 2005 issue.

A 20th Anniversary Trail Ride has been scheduled at Southington Offroad Park in Garrettsville, Ohio on September 7th 2019. Other plans and projects are being discussed by the TRS forum staff.  The plans we choose to pursue will be dependent on the donations that we receive.

A member posted in our forum "Geez, I’ve tipped waitresses more and got a lot less than what I’ve gotten here ! Well deserved".

We would appreciate your donation, no matter how big or small.

It has been a pleasure providing and our facebook page to Ford Ranger & Bronco II enthusiasts over the years. I look forward to celebrating this 20-year benchmark with all of you.
