what up, long time no talk... well im selling my f-150 and lookin to get a ranger again. i wanted everyones opinions... i definitely want a 5-speed, and cant decide if i should stick it out and wait till i find a 4.0(which i had in my last ranger and loved) or settle for a 3.0. also idk if i should get a single cab or extra cab. i really miss my ranger tho lol it's been a year and a half since i got rid of it, and i want another one.
why in the world are you downgrading? I had a ranger and loved it, but after having the F150 XLT 4x4 ext cab I would never trade it for a ranger, although I would probably take a ranger over any other full size truck out there. And I dont notice a much differance in gas milage. Went from 16 down to 15 but have double the truck. But if you go back to a ranger deffinantly get the extended cab 4.0 and 4x4. Transmission be your preferance
4.0 5spd Xcab, love mine. Do a lot of fishing? Get the auto, flat country get the 5spd, hills or mountains do the auto. Depends upon where you live as to what you like best. Boatramps with a stick sux. Ditto coming from a start going uphill from a light. Flatland driving the stick gives better mpg once you learn the tricks, and is more fun to drive. I live in hilly country and fish and own a stk, so I'm not comparing apples to oranges. Where I'm at an auto would be better suited for me. Something to think about.
because i dont like caviar lol, but really the 150 gotta go, gas milage sucks, insurance is just wayyy too expensive, and i really want a ranger again. and i have a corolla for a commuter vehicle, so i wont be out of a vehicle while looking for another truck...
