For the all around package, you can't beat the Ranger, anyone been noticing how many 07-08's are on the road, ITS CRAZY!! Ford is selling them like hot cakes!!

If you like Toyota fine, Mazda whatever, hype them up all you want, but dont bash the Ranger, ESPECIALLY IF YOU OWN ONE!! To whoever here drives a Ranger and cries about it and say they want a Tacoma, GET A LIFE LOSER!!!

i can hype my Mazda up all i want, because my Mazda is a Ford.

HELL YEAH, "I'm a Ford truck man, thats all I drive, I ain't got no boundries, don't compromise, I rather walk 10 miles and be down on my luck, than ride around the block in another kinda pick-up truck. If you see me on the highway in the left hand lane, lost on a back road in the drivin rain, past septemer line where the ride gets rough, ain't no doubt my king of the mountain, Built Ford Tough" - Toby Keith commercial excert
I recorded it off You Tube as a ring tone on my cell phone... yes I am that dedicated!!!

It's been a while since I have sat in a vehicle and felt good about it, I also feel good about buying North American. I have owned Toyota products in the past, (1987 Toyota Landcruiser) and I loved it.. what I didn't love was the cost of getting it fixed, cost me well over 6000 to have the engine rebuilt, (was only two years old).

I also try to buy as much Canadian/Amercian product as I can, I just feel we are all buying to much from China thus cutting our own throats.

The new Tacos are much nicer then Rangers. Aside from the goofy e-break on the Xrunner I like them a lot. As for as me liking my truck, I don't. I'd still rather be driving a European car but I am stuck with the truck so I have some big plans for it later down the road.

But as far as the argument goes

Current Taco>>>>Current Ranger

Rangers = the poor mans tacoma...

This may be insulting to some, but the smart people will realize, this means that the ranger is everybit as tough and reliable as the toyota's.. and alot less of a price tag.

Ranger/B-series FTW!~

I could of bought a Tacoma, but after taking both out for a test drive, (test drove Canyon, Jeep also) my wife and I decided on a ranger amd yes cost was a factor. But why buy a truck just cause it cost more?? I don't get it??
