extended cab is definitely worth it, 4 door makes it even more useful for extra crap you might carry

My Ranger is a 4 dr and I really like it. It takes a WIDE road to make a U turn. On a three lane road I can make a U turn, on a 2 lane I cant. My old 93 Ranger had a tight turn radius and I miss that.

The old saying, it's takes a 40 acre field to turn it around comes to mind for my 2003 Ranger.
