If you bought another car...

If you were to trade/ sell you Ranger for something else, what would it be? Realistically, not a dream car like a Lambo.

I'd probably get a '09 Ram, shortbed, regular cab, hemi, 4x4 TX4. *drool*. Still short wheel base, little wider, 4x4, and tons of power.

Honestly I have no clue what I would get.

I would like something bigger, but also don't want a gas guzzler so really, any choices I might want are out of the question.


However, I seem to change vehicles pretty often as I have owed 16 vehicles in 7 years of driving and I've had everything from a slammed Mazda pickup to a Cadillac.

I think realistically speaking, like Jewler, an 01-03 Sport Trac would be my perfect compromise.

If I had to be able to make it my DD, a jeep. Otherwise I'd spend the money on a real tubing bender, a nice welder, and materials a start from the ground up.

Failing a Sport Trac, if I wanted something bigger, an 01-03ish F150 Supercrew.

Might even settle for an Explorer or something. It's so hard to figure out what I want/need.

I NEED a daily driver, I WANT a toy/project, and I want my girlfriend to have a safe,reliable and practical vehicle as well.

If i had one id use it to its potential. I would haul crap and tow big things that i would worry about towing with the ranger. But at the same time it would look nice and be big. I wouldnt make it so big that it would be useless. IMO thats just a waste of a vehicle.

thats a tough one. i need a truck for towing and hauling. if i was to get a truck it would be a f150 crew cab 6' 1/2" bed. but i really want a car. if i was to get a car it would be a mustang cobra but only if i had something to drive in the winter. if i needed an all year round car, it would be a mazda speed 3
