my 2001 Ranger 4x4 with 121 thousand miles has no body rust, not bad for living here in the north east. The bad part is under side, rust rust rust mostly from the cab back. I took the spare tire off so it didn't fall off. Had to replace the rear spring hangers, rear end cover, brake lines and should replace gas tank center strap hanger. I say should but can't find any, not a dealer item! I wish Ford would recall these things like they did the 150.
