Still on my first Ranger (B4000), but I'll cry when she's gone. No joke.


Your new Ranger is dope :)

I traded my ranger for the chevy and I miss the ranger everyday. Do I regret selling the ranger, yes and no. I do because I loved everything about it and I dont because I was dumping all my money into it to keep it running and because I couldnt haul or pull some loads.


This was taken the day before the guy that bought the ranger came to take it away.

I'm more than happy with my current truck, but I do regret selling my custom B2200.

However, now that I'm moving across the country, it would have had to been sold anyways.

I don't regret selling my old 88 S-10 Blazer...but I do miss it. It was my first truck. Paid 2k for it...2.8 (terrible motor), 5 speed (man, do I miss driving a standard), 83k miles, 4x4, clean as hell. By the time I sold it, it was in rough shape. Rear main seal leaking a quart of oil a week, clutch going out, and I hit a curb on a snowy night so the alignment was way off.

I sold it for 500 bucks, and bought my Bronco off my dad. Bought it with 86k miles on it, and now it has close to 130k. I love it even more then my old Blazer. I go back and forth on selling it everyday, epseically now that i'm commuting 40 miles or more a day. Its still pretty reliable, but needs some work done to it. But I just can't get myself ot sell it...even thinking about it makes me miss it.

Soon enough, I hope to just get a Ranger or maybe a car for a DD and build the Bronco up a lot more.

I really miss my 2000 black 4X2 flareside extended cab but it wasnt my fault I had to get rid of her. Dumb old man ran a red light and totaled her. I do love my 2001 4X4 loaded edge though and wouldnt trade her for anything.

Still on my first one and don't plan to get rid of it until it craps out, and given that it just turned over 100k and is running like a champ, that won't be for a while.

I do not regret getting my 02 FX4 but I still miss my 89 STX. Fortunately, I sold the STX to a co-worker and get to see it almost anytime I want.

I'm on my first and I know I would deeply regret selling it no matter what I got. I'll keep it forever.

I don't know that I regret selling the Ranger... but every month the bill for the new one comes I think of how much money I'm paying to buy the new one that could have gone to modding the old one... but then I remember I have a BRAND NEW LARGER engine... and power options... and that makes me smile...

The truck I really miss is my '92 Full size Bronco. Man I miss that thing. I just wish to hell someone would offer up a full size 2dr suv again. If ford ever comes back out with the bronco and it's the later years models I don't care how much it cost there will be one sitting in my driveway. I just don't care for the old school bronco's to freaking jeepish for me.

As for the ranger, that truck had a lot of blood sweat and tears poured into it over the years. So yhea I guess I miss it but I really say I regret trading it in.

I miss my 2008 Ranger XL, it was as basic as you could get except for A/C, but I really miss it. My new ranger has so many more options, it's bigger, and has a bigger engine, but I just haven't had time to become attached to it like I was to my other Ranger.

Not at all, the 150 is so much nicer in all ways. Payment kinda sucks but its worth it.

I miss my old '90 not for the options it had, or rather didn't, but for all the fun I had in it for 14 years. It was so basic that, when I bought it new in April of 1990, it didn't even have a radio. When I sold it, it was beat up and faded to pink, but still one heck of a truck.

I love my '02 with the 4.0, power options, 4x4, AND AC, but wish I would have kept the '90 for kicks.

Do not miss a thing about mine. Gas milage is roughly the same payment is more yet well worth it! Should have listened to my pops and got a full size in the first place. Oh well. Did have fun with the ranger yet the f150 is 10x better.
