Trading in my truck before winter

Well I know this sounds crazy, but I think i've made up my mind. Im gonna trade in my truck for a full size. Im 6'-2" and i feel cramped in my little regular cab. Also I want a truck that has 4x4 for these snowy new england blizzards. Im gonna be checking out the dealers around the area tomorow for F-150's! Also all my hard work that I've done to my truck in mods will be taken off and sold on here. Don't get me wrong, i love my ranger but i think its time for bigger and better things.

Well i am 6'3'' and I don't feel cramped. I like the size and don't even put the seat back all the way. I do understand your need for 4x4 and since the ranger is small...well good luck with the f150.


the JD traction bars are they going to be for sale. i may want those.

Let me know how much for the grill. I want your 4.10's to, but I think that'd be kinda hard.

When my brother had his ranger, the size of the cab was perfect, and his windows were tinted dark, so it was great in there.

it wont fit your truck, the 04 grilles are different. Also i may leave the grill, i remember now that i pretty much destroyed the stock clips so i dunno if it will go back on.

I feel your pain, I am 6'3 and I had to have the seat reclined so far in my Rangers that I had to lean into the airbag to see out the side window. It sucked. I liked the truck enought that I didn't car, but it still sucked.

Good luck with you choice man!

I'd do it quick, before the snow flies. As soon as the temps drop and the leaves change 4WD will be at a premium again. Right now you'll get a helluva deal as nobody can move full-size pickups to save their lives..
