Been lurking a while, decided to join.
I have owned 3 (not counting current issue) rangers.
Currently rolling a 2005 Xlt extra cab, 4.0 Auto, my first auto truck, not sure how I feel about that, I really prefer a standard.
Welcome from another Mainer! I'm running an "automatic" truck too and I also prefer standards. They are hard to find that haven't been really beat up. Mine is a '11 Sport 4x4 and I really love it. I've been driving Rangers since '95 and even my work truck was a Ranger until last year when they put me into a Nissan Frontier.
