Thats funny, I'm 6' 5" and when I was looking for a truck back In May, one of the resons I settled on the Ranger was because of how comfortable it was for me. I tried a Tacoma, but couldn't even get my legs under the steering wheel. But seriously, $16,000 sounds like a Great deal, on a great truck. I say go for it!

^^^ I'll second that. I'm 'only' 6'.. but had the same problem w/ the old style (~'03) tacos. I test drove 3 or 4 of them.. but didn't feel comfortable in ANY of them. The extended cab was a nice bonus on the Ranger, but mandatory on the taco. And then there was the shoulder and leg room.

Tacos are small! And my LII w/ those buckets.. she's a pretty comfortable ride.

Well, I didn't get that specific Ranger, I got a better one :)

05 Leftover Ranger EDGE, 4.0, 4x4 Bright Red Supercab 2 door....

I will put up some pics soon, and no offroading for me for a while. I would like to keep this truck as long as I can, but when I get offroad, I drive like a freakin' nut....
