gosh i guess ranger owners jump to conclusions way to fast???

so, you will have the same setup as a stock 4x4 in the front, but be awd, with a 5.0... and you are doing a superlift?

i'm proud to drive a ranger cause in the lowered scene or "bagged Scene" most people don't bother with rangers cause they don't make bolt on parts like for S10's they have drop spindles and bolt on 4 links and what not won't find anytying like that for a ranger plus i'll drag on them anyway lol

A nice 4wd Ranger is for people who want a Jeep but need to carry or tow stuff. Plus the rangers aren't as physically punishing to live with like a wranger is... And with the longer wheelbase, I can climb stuff they can't too.

I have always believed that the LVL2 is the second best off-road truck out there (only slightly behind that wrangler) BUT i would take a lLVL2 anyday of the week over the jeep for daily driving. You truely get the best of both worlds with a ranger. Not to menchon how damn good they look Back to the ranger community, again i have meet countless people through this site that are now friends. It's cool to know that i can goto the U of A, UCSB, and hell even say i am going to be making a cross country trip and have a few room and board offers allong the way, and from what... people that i have just met on this site. I dont think there is anything cooler then that!

lol I am 39 and when I run into the typical young ranger owner they can't figure out why I have one.......... Fact is, I have been a GM guy from day one, but GM trucks suck. I do not like full size trucks, and prefere the size of the Ranger. I guess i am not the typical owner though, plus I got 350hp and six gears sitting in the garage for the weekends!!!!!!!!!

1. Because of Ranger sites my knowledge in trucks has expanded greatly. And now that my Chevy Colorado owning friend keeps blabbing on how his truck is so much better than mine in power...I can laugh with great confidence and tell him he's an idiot and have factual statements. But he still says his truck is better. He is gay
2. Rangers can fit in parking spaces, and parallel park much easier than full size

really the thing that i feel makes ranger owners unique is that they have an actual respect for what is put into their trucks. Seeing as how most of the community here doesn't[I][U] make a +100K a year to pay for installations of everything and having all their mods done for them, they gain a better understanding of what it means to really put blood, sweat, and tears into something that they can stand back, look at and be proud to drive. i sure know that i have learned from the info and members on this site and am glad that i came across it.

a ranger i think has the most potential for an offroad machine. the only thing lacking in a ranger stock.. is ground clearance.

My buddies Jeep fails at some situations that my truck easily surpasses him.

We don't have the damn turning radius.
No topless

Our wheelbase is pretty short though. And lockers make a hell of a difference.

We take pride in our trucks and love to show them off. We work on our own trucks. Rangers are better than anything out there. We are the elite.
