The worst thing about Rangers is the owners who nit-pick every little thing they don't like that is common to all vehicles and have to start threads about it.

I wish it got better mileage on city driving. I used to have a Ford Tempo that spoiled me. That car got awesome mileage.

Not big enough to comfortably tow my mustangs/chevelle any reasonable distance. This is why I am currently in the market for an 04-08 F150.




But keeping the Ranger as an extra/ hunting vehicle as it has bee paid off for years, I will not get much for it trade, and I have a ton of new maintenance items on it.

I hate all the people that own rangers that are smart enough to post on here to ask questions, but not smart enough to fix their own vehicle...or they fix their own vehicle and break more things in the process

FORD, that is the problem with a Ranger… Ford things if they decide it is right then you have to except it !

No Solid Axle in Front.
No manual Transfer Case as Stk Option.
No Diesel engines.
No V8, why only the Explorer lineup.

As far as being a great vehicle, there is no question I love my Ranger and have owned four of them since ‘90 and will always want one but with the elimination of the Ranger as a TRUCK this one will probably be my last !

I can't believe how many people think turning a wrench is harder than in actually is.

well either you give them advice which involves work, and they just start a new thread for a different idea

OR

they say, well i took this part off, and i broke this, this and this in the process

"I uh took my brakes apart, broke the caliper, backing plate and rotor at the same time"
Yea, i used to see that kind of crap when i worked for Crest. i'd have to do damage control before i could even begin to order parts.

Wasn't it the Discovery channel that has a program about people loving inanimate objects?
Taboo I believe it's called.
Very disturbing.
Do you pet yours and tuck it in at night?
Give it kisses?
