I have owned an 02 ranger xlt 4wd for about 3 years now.It has been one of the most dependable vehicles I have ever owned.I am considering trading for a similar 06 model.I would like to hear pros-cons between the 02's and 06's.Thanks.
06 trucks look better cus of the new tails. I'm partial tho. As for the powerdome, i didn't know about that when I bought mine in 08 and it didnt really bother me. The grill also looks better, it's larger and cuts into the hood.
I know you made your decision already but the 06 has a little larger brakes in the front. The 06 also has thicker glass to reduce outside nise from intruding into the cab. This also adds a little weight to the 06.
I have over 168K miles on my 02 with most maintenance type repairs. I am getting due for ball joints soon but otherwise doing good. I am partial to the 02 styling too.
