That's where I am getting to. I'm beginning to think my ranger days are coming to an end. Love the truck, but fullsize or something truely sporty is sounding like it'll hit the spot much better.

I've been keeping all my 150 stuff in one thread so I didn't clutter up the site with non-ranger mess but I guess I won't from now on.
Not you Trent, I never said your name in that text, I didn't even name anyone in particular. I said I hope you STAY. lol.

For the trails around here, you cannot drive a fullsize without major paint damage. For me, all I have to haul around is the GF and 2-3 quads. It does both of those more that enough for my needs. If she doesn't like my truck, then she can drive herself lol.

I think I am going to keep this one, or get a TTB and swap an EB D44 in it and use that to wheel.
Then I might consider a fullsize to haul that POS to the trail head. But for now the Ranger suites my needs, and I can't see myself changing anytime soon.

Luckily I have the somewhat sporty Jetta to drive for now. Sort of helps deal with the lack of bikes at the moment, atleast having something that is somewhat fast and handles well.
Although about a week ago I started looking at new GTIs and Audis to replace it, but that won't be happening.

Ive started doing advance research for a project car. Couple options.

LS1 RX-7
LS1 944
LS1 miata

I figure a car would really round out the stables.

I'd like to get a Oxford White FX4 or a Lariat 4x4 crew cab for myself and the G/F can have the Ranger.

The ONLY way im not keeping this Ranger is if it's traded towards a new Ranger FX4.

im cool with all the 150's. Heck its what the rest of us would do if we had the money isnt it? I know I will be keeping the ranger foryears to come cause of money, and I do love it, but one day, yeah Id like to upgrade. And having these guys and their knowledge wil make that transition better.

Who cares if there are F-150 threads dont click em! I personally like looking at other members F-150's because I think they are sharp. All about what you like no one is forcing your finger to click the left side of the mouse.

being more compact than most trucks is my favorite part about the Ranger, I didn't buy it because it was cheap, to me it wasn't, I bought it because its my favorite vehicle and still is

We have one of those, the Off Topic Section, but most threads are put in General Ranger Discussion.
