It had "BIGFOOT" on the side, like the original monster truck. Not sure if it had anything else....

What about the "original" Ranger? The "Ford Courier"?

I just did some research on the courier...neat little beast! You can see what the Ranger evolved from. But then again, the F-series had the "Ranger" trim package....So where did it REALLY evolve from?

I remember most of them. I owned an 89 STX for 13 years. It was more like the FX4 LII of today and the new STX is more like the GT of yesterday.

I've seen a couple of Lariats around here, and I think I have even seen one of the Big Foots. I have seen lots of STX's, and even more XL's and XLT's. I have never seen a Ranger Explorer.

the courier is still aliove in Mexico. The bed is attached to the cab like an old Subaru Brat or a new Honda Ridgeline. My brother saw one a couple of weeks ago.
