3.0 love... I love my truck. I did not buy it to go fast.. Its slow yes.. but its a 4x4 truck.. I pulled a big *** tree down with my truck in low range.. it will do w/e u want it to do for having 148hp.. I tow a twin all steel snowmobile trailer with my 400ex in my bed, a 700cc polaris quad and a 05 4x4 rancher on the trailer.. it pulls it good.. U know somethings there.. but the motor doesent seem to work too much, unless theres a decent hill then u will have to give it some 3rd gear.. I prolly would of opted for the 4.0 but I got a deal on my truck and im happy with it. Granted i have a 13sec mustang GT to drive if Im sick of the Ranger lol.. and yea.. My buddys dad has a 03 4.0 auto ranger .. And he gets 16-18mpg.. I get almost 23 in my ranger.. mostly city too!!
