im not saying women are bad drivers.... but seriously, i let my wife drive my ranger and she rearended another vehicle. total loss. engine block and cab/firewall damage. if only it wasnt lowered, their bumper might have hit my bumper. instead, front clip took the damage. it might have had a chance.

Of course it will be replaced with a reg. cab ranger. unfortunately, i cant find one with a 4.0L.. only 3.0L (3.sl0wwww) i actually came across only a couple reg cabs with the big v6. in oxford white stripped down. (not even a cd player) fleet trucks with hundreds of thousands of miles. I passed on those. Ill be making love to the search button. I guess im gonna have to find a salvaged ranger (complete) to do a 4.0 swap. Should i get the 3.0L?????

I vote engine swap!!!! That's what i want to do when the 2.5L takes a dump....in goes a 4.0L OHV. And make sweet sweet love to that craiglist auto parts button too. lol. I still havn't found my truck yet, but i'm now to the point of finding a truck, i don't care what the engine/trans combo is, i'll do some swappage. lol. You're wrecked truck was my favorite...gawked at it in my ranger folder for a while the other day.....you won't be offended if i sorta copied your build right? lol.

That sucks man, it was an awesome looking truck. I remember when I totalled my first Ranger, It sucked so hard, but I ended up getting the truck I wanted in the first place. I hope all goes well for you finding a new truck.
Is your wife okay?
