Only in a ranger...

A little rant/rave thread about the oddities of our rides...

Some I have noticed recently...

Only in a ranger does the frame flex so badly that is cracks the windshield.

Only in a ranger does the weatherstripping come from the factory with a gap in it to allow me to stick a coat hangar in it to unlock my door.

Only in a ranger can a 4.0 L engine make 170 HP.

Only in a ranger can you sit and justify spending more money on her broken bits... even when the truck has depreciated to less than the cost of maintenance you have already done...

Only in a ranger can you spend all morning in the bush sliding between trees that larger vehicles need to bulldoze, wash it off and have a looker after lunch.


Your turn...

Only in a Ranger will you find more people rolling their trucks than other vehicles.

Only in a Ranger will you find that you don't get rear doors on an extended cab.

Only in a Ranger will the slave cylinder fail after 12 months of use.

BAHAHAHAHA

Only in a ranger do you drive past other RBV's and look at them as parts donor vehicles

only in a ranger can you have an interchangability of parts from 1998-2010

only in a ranger do other ranger owners get an additude when you look at their ranger, unlike jeep or corvette guys that waive or nod

Only in a Ranger/B-series is the interior put together so poorly that it sounds like a haunted house rolling down the road

I'm sure your near decade old ranger is still worth allot of money.

Only in a ranger could you switch components from an SUV and an SUT and have them match up.

This shocks you?!?
You drive around looking at other peoples trucks thinking about what parts you can rip off of them and then you wonder why those people give you bad looks.

If you pulled up next to me and started asking what bolt pattern my wheels were, I'd knock your teeth out too.
