decision time! need some help!
i am currently driving a 2001 Ranger Edge 2wd 3.slow 5-speed standard cab, and have been given the chance to trade for my sisters 1998 Ranger XLT 2wd 3.slow auto extended cab. my question is which would you choose if you were going to be building a prerunner style truck. i have a $10,000 spending limit, and i know what parts i would use for either truck. the extended cab would give extra room for a cab cage, and change the center of gravity towards the rear more, but it doesnt have the acceleration that my standard cab has, plus my Edge only has 70k on it, where the XLT has about 150k on it.
