That site is just making it sound worse than it really is. There's an easy fix for that. Drop that sumbish! 4x4 or not.

Is it me or doesn't it look like from the side view on the first page that the bed on the truck needs dropped or a rear body kit thing needs done to the new Ranger?

That's the truth. At least if it killed me I'd die with some shred of dignity.

I can name probably.. 10 people ( myself counted twice ) that have rolled over in their trucks and didn't sustain any SERIOUS bodily injury. My injuries were due to myself NOT tightening down my harnesses to keep me in the seat better ( took off my thick winter coat, left a good gap on the shoulder straps ) .

Of those 10 incidents, I believe EVERYONE walked away.. maybe a little shaken up...

Anyone visit any other forums and seen/heard actual reports in regards to other ' top sellers ' like civics, neons, explorers and such?

I think the facts of whats happened to our user base here begs for the real truth, contrare to whats printed.

I agree. Just from seeing the people around here get into their misfortunes in their rangers, I believe that even tho the ranger has a hiugh chance of rolling - due to its hieght and narrow size - to be one of the safer cars on the road. sure it might roll over, but you dont come out of it dead. and with 6ft of crumple zone behind your seat, thats along of cushion. which most cars dont have. Regardless of what the "reports" report, i firmly believe that a ranger, is the safest thing to be in for anyone who cant afford a car that turns into an airbag.

I would die with dignity in a WRX! But if I rolled my ranger and lived I would not be that mad I would just get an extended cab!
