The older rangers (80's) are tanks....the engines are a little under-powered...but that can be fixed. Newer rangers are small trucks with more HP packed into the small frames, but you can't easily modify the new ones (Someone's gonna shoot me down on that opinion.)...emissions and such. Sooo, in my opinion, the best ranger for you to get, Nicole, would be a mid to late 80's if you want a serious beater with potential. OR, if you want something that's got a little power going with it, try a newer model...03-05 are my favs. DON'T make my mistake and buy new. Is that better, for all you guys whining about off-topic? lol.
