When you're sitting in a fast food parking lot munching down, and another Ranger drives by and you say to no one in particular, "Thats a 96 Ranger 2wd."

you know you drive a ranger when you see a stock one on the street and know exactly how you would mod it and where you would buy the parts.

when you dream of owning a fleet of rangers so you can have a sas, lt 4x4, lt 2x4, baged, performance dropped and stocker for a dd.

when die hard jeep girls look at your truck and say "i hate fords but that thing is sexy"

when a girl gets your attention by complimenting your truck

When you hear the door ajar ping in your sleep.

If you're a 4.0L owner, you smile and laugh to yourself when other Ranger owners complain about power, cause you know they're not talking about your truck.

You've ever pissed youself cause your brakes locked up at a stop sign and you almost hit the guy in front of you.

You push the red button on your seat belt connecter when the alarm goes off instead of buckling up.

You think of explorers as donor cars before other rangers.

Your answer to "what would you do if you won a million dollars" is a V8 swap, a 4x2 to 4x4 conversion and buying a patch of land to play around on.

3. ... you have a two groups on AIM "people" and "rangers"

4. ... you see or pass other Rangers and wonder/hope they saw your R-F decal

5. ... the most exciting destination to your road trip is an RF meet

6. ... you go to a Ford dealership to buy parts and find you know more about Rangers than anyone working there

7. ... you have more pictures of your truck then your GF or heck anything else for that matter

8. ... you know you drive a ranger when no matter how crappy it runs you still giving rides to your brothers who drive chevys.

9. ... people give you funny looks due to the fact you treat it like a Ferrari.

10. ... you know that no matter what goes wrong with your truck a SAS and 5.0 swap will make everything ok.
Whew... that was hard!!

Read up until page 4, so idk if these have been said in similarity.

You know you drive a Ranger when......

When you play "Ranger"......kinda like padiddle or the yellow car game.

When you have recurring dreams of a Daisy Duke-esque babe on the side of I-80 with a flat tire on her twin-sticked FX4, flagging you and your Ranger / B-Series down with her bra.

When your girlfriend IMs you and goes, "whats up babe? oh wait, let me guess, on craigslist, ebay, or some other gay truck site looking at some dumb chrome tow hooks."

When your dad and two brothers point out Rangers when you go somewhere, then tell you to mod it like that, or buy it.

When your dad has an Explorer, and brother has a F-150. Gotta be in the middle, right?

When you spend a few hours a week looking at all the different options you have for your next vehicle and looking at their forums.

When you want a job just so you can afford to get something else and get rid of the truck ASAP.

When while floored you get pulled by moms in minivans who are just driving normal.

Mine are so negative compared to everyone else's lol.

When at an RF meet, you decide you are sick of trying to learn his real name, then call him by his screen name, which happens to be a chewy candy. lol.

When you spend more time on R-F than anywhere else.
When your scared that your timing chain could snap.
When you see the "Check Gage" light every other day it seems.

When you see a DWB truck and go, wow, Shanes truck really used to look that gay?
When you see a Sonic Blue truck and go, wow, Beards truck really used to look that gay?
When you see a silver truck and go, wow, TrePauls truck really used to look that gay?

When you see an S10/Sonoma on the road, throw it in neutral, bounce it off 5k RPM and put it back in drive.

I got a new one:

You know it's sad when half your cell phone's contact list is a name followed by their screen name or a description of their truck! That just means you have no real life friends... sounds alot like me.
