JBA Equipped - Camburg Baja Race Truck
Ford Ranger Edge by Camburg

The Ford Ranger is the best selling compact pick-up in country because it packs great value, durability and utility in a package that fun to drive - especially when modified. Because there isn't a performance engine available for the Ranger - enthusiasts have looked to JBA for badly needed horsepower, torque and mileage. It doesn't matter if your truck has a long travel suspension with 33's or slammed with 20's - it's not cool to be short on power. Not to worry, JBA has you covered with the most complete header and exhaust offerings for Rangers. JBA has engineered and built the best performing and longest lasting headers and exhaust systems possible. Race teams and professional show truck builders use the same JBA products that you can install on your truck because JBA makes great power, fit without modification, last longer and look awesome.

Ford has never sold a high output performance engine in the Ranger yet owners routinely modify their trucks beyond the power capability of the factory V6. Why not? They are fun to drive and they look good. But on the street or off-road, the V6 has a tough time keeping up with the big guys. JBA satisfies your need for more horsepower and torque with high performance Cat4ward® headers. With perfectly sized tubing to build maximum power without losing valuable torque, a formed high flow collector design and heavy-duty materials for the ultimate in durability - JBA Headers are the perfect upgrade for your V6 Ranger. Standard finish on these is stainless steel. They are also available with silver or titanium finish ceramic coating for the ultimate in high heat thermal protection and lasting good looks under the hood. Each kit includes high quality hardware, gaskets and thorough instructions for the do-it-yourself installation.

9mm JBA PowerCables™ p/n 06479.

For more performance on your Ranger, you will want to upgrade your ignition wires to a set of JBA PowerCables™. Each set is custom tailored to your Ranger application so you get a perfect fit every time. JBA's performance ignition wires feature ultra-low resistance wire-wound mag conductors that allow more spark energy to reach the spark plug without electronic interference. JBA Powercables™ come with 100% silicone jackets for great resistance to high heat as well as abrasion and tears. The high heat boots give plenty of clearance for routing around the headers. Each wire is pre-labeled with the appropriate cylinder I.D for easy installation. Sport Truck magazine tested these wires and found they were less than 1/2 the resistance of the factory wires. They look great under the hood too.
