Hi I'm Jim. I have a 2001 Ford Ranger. Never owned a non-GM vehicle. I sold Ford before. I needed a replacement for my TrailBlazer. I always wanted a truck. An SUV is not a truck. Tried full size Ford, Dodge. Really couldn't find one I liked. Also I didn't need that space. Use for driving only. Found a 2001 Ranger. Remembering selling them and knowing how they hold up. I bought 1. Has 155K miles. I love the little thing. I'm not a mechanic. I'm able to fix things on it. That is kinda fun. Just not happy with the speed limitor or govenor on it. Cruel joke to me.
