Regular cab for me. I like having a shorter wheelbase and I like the look more.

1) Get a Metro instead, they have better a better turning radius.
2) They look better lifted up to a point, then it looks goofy.
3) If you want fast, get a Corvette, not a Ranger
4) Wow, how old are you?

You just have to take DownSouthTAS with a sense of humor.
He obiviously doesnt have one because 3/4 his posts are offensive generally.
But its the internet so it doesnt mean crap to me.


Oh and back on topic 6'2" and reg cab just doesnt cut it and I like to take naps in the truck too.. that just isnt easy in a reg cab.

This is true. I'm 6'0" and its not easy to nap in the regular cab. I HAVE done it on an all-night road trip by myself to get up to Kentucky to see my little brother return from Iraq w/ the 101st Airborne, but I could have slept on a bed of nails at the time.

1) I believe the topic is "Reg cab vs. Ext cab" I dont see any Metro in it..
2) I haven't seen any 12" lift kits for a Ranger lately
3) Ranger was 13K, Whats another 25K for a Vette, right?
4) Old enough to tell your a pessimistic, negative smartass..

Okay, now that 3liter has spoken his peace, let's keep this thread civilized!


Personally, I don't think shoving my 6'8" , 245-ish pound frame in a regular cab would work. I don't think I've tried it, but I don't dare. :-D

You won't fit, not by a long shot... Your the kind of guy that sits next to the supercab window rather than the side glass, aren't you? :D

LOL.. Yep. :-D I get some weird looks from people because my supercab windows are tinted very heavily, where as my side windows aren't tinted nearly as dark, and they don't see anyone driving. :-D

I guess I could go out and spend 10 grand for a custom fabbed front setup, but then why would I want to do that when I could just go buy a Vette :roll:

Whoa bud, dont wanna start an arguement or anything but $10K :roll:? I have 8" suspension lift on my 98 and I spent about 3 on it, and it could be done for less im sure. I know 8" isn't 12 but it wouldn't cost much for me to bump it up a few more inches. And how much is the RCD kit these days? I bet installed its around the same price as what I spent.

Either the tone of the thread gets changed, or this thread gets locked. If I'm in a good mood, I'll just delete the offending posts, but I don't like deleting anything, so it may just get locked.

Last warning.

Ooh, now theres a point worth making.. one of the reasons that I didn't want a supercab is that they're too small to realistically put people in for any serious amount of time. I'm pretty peeved that they designed a 4 door Ranger then decided to slap an Explorer nose and badge on it so they could charge 10K more a shot for them.
