Didnt you say you wanted another lowered truck? I would go with number 3 but I also like those trucks alot, plus you can throw some rims on it and drop it after the ranger is done or whatever.

Don't get that V-10. Those things are hogs on gas. Have you considered a diesel truck? Good Gas, **** Loads of Torque, Huge Market, Good Gas Mileage. Also It might be practical since your turning your ranger into an offroad machine to have a truck that can haul it from place to place or when things break.

Just a thought is all.

I like the jeep, being it's gonna be a DD, it is somewhat more practical as opposed to the superduty.. does it have the 4.0L I6 or the 4.7L V8?

As much as I like the looks of that SD, I think the Jeep would be better as a DD...

I think it may be a little late for my opinion... but here goes.


I think that Lincon looks like a steal. I've driven one and they are extremally nice cars. Assuming there are no mechanical problems, it's a luxury SUV that has plenty of posh, decent gas mileage, room for the family and if you treat it right anouther 75,000 miles to go. Why not grab it, enjoy it, and then suprise the wife/girlfriend for Valentines/Christmas/birthday?

Otherwise, I'd avoid the F350. They're MASSIVE. Unless you're a heavy duty construction worker or need to tow huge loads, you'll contantly be thinking "Why did I buy this thing? How am I suppost to park it? When will my gas mileage be back in the double digits?"

If you're looking for a car that is good on gas, can haul around the family, and just generally be a good car, look at the new Kia Rios. I don't know about where you are, but here in Texas, it's a pretty common thing to see dealer advertising a new Kia Spectra for $5,880. It's no B/S either, my friend went and bought one, it cost him $6,100 with TTL and a few options... And it's a great little car. Very comfy, suprisingly room and nimble, and he gets about 35mpg highway and 25 city. I think the $5,880 Kia is a special deal, the Kia website puts them at $13k new, so you can probibly find a very low mileage used one for around $9-10k. Lastly, I just checked MSN autos and the Kia Spectra has really good reliablity ratings...

if the navigator is anything like my dads expedition 5.4L 4x4... than its gonna get something like 10-12mpg in town and maybe 14-16 on the highway. did i mention that it costs nearly $70 at EVERY fill-up???
