Don't hate on green. But a little FYI: the green has like 20% more horsepower than the white ones. lol

LOL.

Well dont jump your car, drive 45mph over lots of bumps in a row, hit water doing 30, run over curbs faster then 1mph, get stuck with your hitch, frame and axle underground, and etc. It was a 1wd, when I went into mud I went fast and hit it hard.

I beat the crap out of my truck (my loss). Dont do it, unless you plan on replacing a lot.


Also had 139k miles, but it never left me stranded. At one point it even ran on 5cylinders. I drove it all over, loved it and do miss it.

I like how some people think you can go 100 over speed bumps just because they are in a truck. Ummm still has shocks, ball joints and other stuff that cars have.

Really, the ranger manuals have proven to be a poor design, people are replacing slave cylinders all the time.
