"This electric blue PU looks like it just came off the new car show room floor. Tonneau bed cover. Love my manual trannys. This is my 3rd Ranger and probably the last since Ford is pushing their F150."

"I have owned this truck since 2002 when it had 19 miles on it. I have always ran full synthetic in the engine until 150K, when I went to synthetic mix. This truck has never left me stranded. I have replaced: Water Pump, Alternator,and 4x4 transfer case motor. Upgrades include: 165 degree Temp regulator, K&N Filter in standard airbox, 2.5" cat-back exhaust with flowmaster, Enhasnced coimputer mapping for torque, shift points and shift duration (set for HARD shift), 3 inch bodylift, 265/75/16 off road tires, Rancho-9000 adjustable shocks, 4.56 gears front and rear. I have pulled more trucks, cars, and a school bus out of ditches with this truck. It seems that no task is too great. It is much easier to navigate on dirt/sand/muddy trails that my 2000 F-150 4x4, and with a similar set up. I now have 201,000 miles, and when this engine time is through, I will get another Engine/trans/ECG and replace it and start again. I LOVE MY TRUCK."

"had truck for just about a year, put close to 15000 miles on it, overall, not really impressed by vehicle at all, no problems, just basically unremarkable driving experience, stiff bouncy ride and about 16-18 mpg . i bought ranger because of great reliability record and truck has been that, just can't beat the ride of full size trucks, but still very peppy and agile, can sorta see why they lost favor with public."
