Are you kidding? I beat the **** out of my ranger every day and it ran like a champ when I sold it at 145k miles. Most of it's like was with 33s, 3.73s and plenty of weight in the back. WOT all the time on road and off. It was noisy at all (marbles in a can) but it ran awesome.
When I worked at the Ford dealership, I saw a lot of old 4.0L OHV rangers come in with well over 200k miles still running strong with no rebuilds, only minimal work like intake gaskets or sensors.
