How Many Rangers ?

Hey everyone,
How many Rangers have you owened or have? What year & color? Which one was your favorite? Pictures would be nice. I've had a 91 XLT, Strawberry Red & my present 2005 Edge,Bright Red. Liked them both about the same.
Thanks, James Sorry I didn't mean to leave out the Mazdas.

I had an old one. I can't even remember what year it was. POS. Hardly ran, was tattered, beaten, pretty much destroyed. 2.3, 4 speed.

I'd like to think that my current one will be my only one...but not because I dont like it.

Of course, plans change so in that case, it wont be my last.

lol,I typically own more than 1 of each vehicle I buy.

3x Mazda B2200s
2x Mazda RX7s
2x Toyota Celicas
3x Ford Contours
2x Isuzu Troopers
1x Cadillac Catera
1x Isuzu Rodeo
1x Nissan Hardbody

I'd like to keep my Mazda running as long as possible, and would like to get a 2002 Ranger to slam as a summer toy.

I have had two Rangers, and if we're counting all RBVs, an Explorer too.

My first Ranger, a 2001 XL 2.5L, purchased May, 2004...

I recently saw it in South Charlotte, in the exact same condition it was when I sold it.

My 1995 Explorer Sport 4x4 4.0L, purchased in September, 2007 for $950...

Lots of fun, and pretty reliable. Rust was its downfall. It lived in PA for 13 years before I got it.

And finally, my current Ranger, a 2002 XLT Super Cab 3.0L...

All in all, the best one so far. I really miss the 4WD from the Explorer, and I sometimes miss the M5OD from my first Ranger, but as far as having a reliable and decent looking daily driver, the 2002 is hard to beat.

I'd like to keep my Mazda running as long as possible, and would like to get a 2002 Ranger to slam as a summer toy.
I want to box the frame. I'm doing a 3" spindle lift in the front and then a 2" body lift. I want 35'' a/t's. I want to murder it out and the only logos I'd keep would be the big MAZDA on the tail gate, but get the black letters, and then black out the B3000 badges. I'd do an 8.8 swap in the rear with a fresh LSD and airbag assisters. Then a 302 FI swap with a tune for mileage/torque. still producing mid 200's in HP to the wheels. Get my audio system back to the way I like it and deaden the cab some more. a flush tonneu cover and dark tint. Past that just do regular maintenance. Eventually re-do the interior. By the time all that is done I'll be well out of college and have a daily driver. The truck would be a saturday/sunday driver/tow vehicle.

If I ever actually have kids it'd be badass to give what would be a classic truck, but BA, to my son (or even daughter...chicks in trucks is hot) as their first vehicle. The truck that was my first vehicle.









Screw that.

She's my baby.

Bought it when I was 17 and haven't looked back, but I am in the market for an F150 so we'll see what fate lies for the ranger
