I think Crewcab Rangers are sold everywhere but the States. No worries. What they gain in space, they miss in power.

I'm 6'1" in an older 96 ranger, no problems with head room. Just wish the cab was a bit more roomy sometimes.

I'm 6' 6" and my head just barely clears the headliner. When I go over big bumps, I feel my head briefly touching the headliner. But hey, the headliner is soft and my head is hard, so no harm is done.

6-2 and I find the 03 Std Cab to be a good fit.
My 95 was a little small and the 88 was tight at times.

The 03 surprised me when I got in, I expected a tighter fit and found the new cabs to be very roomy and comfortable.

sport tracs are "explorer" sport tracs, not ranger sport tracs (and yes, Im aware there is hardly any difference mechanically)
but his truck is a full on crew cab ranger, not a sport trac.

so how hard would it be to bring one out of mexico ?

If you are talking about Sport Tracs, they are around 33k. These are hardly seen around... i've seen more Ridgelines or Avalanches than Sport Tracs.

If you are talking about Rangers, they cost something like 20k. These are very popular, even more than Tacomas (those cost +/- 28k).

How hard would it be to bring one to the US? I'm not so sure. What I'd ask myself is if that truck can meet all US environment/safety regulations... Although, I gotta say that almost all the components i've seen on my truck (which is an 03 for Mexico, with the looks of a 98-00 from the States) are made in the US. Maybe that's a plus.

I guess only the cab and bed are manufactured in Argentina or somewhere else... not sure, tho.

I'm willing to trade my truck for an FX4 any time. LOL. JK JK JK

I have considered a sport trac on several occasions, and even had an opportunity to buy one with a rebuilt engine @ 40k miles for $2100.0, but in the end I couldnt bring myself to sell my ranger (that and I have to question why someone needs to replace the engine on a vehicle that had less than 100k on the chassis)

Im not a huge fan of the looks of the sport track, if I was going to go that route Id just get an explorer or escape for the additional benefits extra storage space. I have looked at a couple of f-150's with crew cabs, so maybe I'll go that route

I was going to buy a F-150, but it was a lot more expensive. Plus, i'm not a fan of automatic transmissions, power windows and stuff like that. If i had the money, i sure as hell buy me a F-150.

Hope you make the right choice :

Yea I'm not big on the earlier ST's but the 07's I think have real nice front ends. (especially the Adrenaline)

ill have to do a search for the "Adrenaline" Ive not heard of it before.
but Im not exactly rich so chances are I couldnt afford it regardless of its condition. unless totaled at the JY
no matter what I end up doing I would have to sell my ranger first. so anything I do get would have to come from the proceeds from that.

just did a search and I have to say "HOLY CRAP" !
that is one nice looking vehicle !
yea, I def would be interested in that, but @ $36k.... its not going to happen

Well right now, I'm 17 and just a hair over 6'2". I drive a 1998 Ranger and there's not much head room, I fit, but with little room to spare. I really hope I stop growing....I don't want to stop driving a Ranger.
Total height isn't what's important when fitting into a particular vehicle. Most people never think about it, but humans have body parts with many different dimensions. Since you complain about headroom, not legroom, you may have a long torso.

I'm not very tall (5'6"), but I've found that I have relatively long legs (for my height). My inseam is actually longer than my father's, who is 3" taller than me. So my problem is that when I slide the seat back far enough to be comfortable, my arms can be a bit short to reach the steering wheel and I'm short looking over the wheel.

The upside is that I have less trouble climbing into my lifted Ranger. :)
