08 ranger sport

just looked at a new 2008 ranger sport at a local dealer. 5 speed manual to boot. black exterior. pretty nice. new stx grill i noticed. trailer tow, slider. driving my fx4 off road today and decided to check it out. black looks cool with the red sport decal on the sides, couldnt find any 2.3 xl 5speeds but a few 3.0 autos in you guessed it WHITE!!!!. i love to find a 07 xl in dark shadow gray with a 5speed manual for a daily driver??. its only money??.

Yea id say the Fx4 is much better too.

Well if you're seriously interested in finding exactly what you want, talk to your dealership im sure they could order in something if they know for sure that you will buy it.

I went to 5 dealers searching for my exact Ranger. I had to drive to Virginia to find it. Great trip back, and love the 5spd manual, man they are hard to find.

xl

i never see the xl's or never see xlt 4 cyc 5speed rangers here in nj. i saw one xl ranger last yr at a local ford dealer near me. 2.3 5speed in dark shadow gray. i even sat in it because the door was open on a sunday. lol... i loved it. should have bought that sucker right there and then. nice looking truck. all i see is extra cabs with the 3.0. no 2.3's. sucks. if these ford dealers stock more and i can look at them i would buy one. hard to find thats for sure. i hate ordering one too. took 3 months for my 07 fx4 to come in.

Rangers are hard to come by anymore, been looking for a new truck and have not been able to find to many rangers, and they cost almost just as much as an F150 does, i love the ranger but the F150 is the best bang for the buck, so i think ill go with that

I didn't want an F-150 because of the gas mileage is better with the Ranger.

I had a Chevy Silverado 1500 with lousy gas mileage, and didn't want a repeat of that.

I drove to a dealer about an hour away to look at one Ranger, then about 45 minutes away in a different direction to find the one I finally bought. I went thru many dealerships looking at what was available, checking the internet, for local listings ect.... there was a few out there, but not as many as I hoped there would be. Some were really beat up bad, so when I found mine, I jumped on it.

'08 Sport Grille looks good!

I liked the grille in the '08 Sport a lot more that the rest of the '08 models. I was tempted by the FX-Off Road, but decided on a Sport (mostly because of the grille) and added a few options that I liked in the FX.
