When you can think of 10 responses real quick!

1) You know you drive a ranger when it's paid off and your still driving it years later and you can still afford a couple more cars besides the ranger.
2) You know you drive a ranger when someone laughs at you and says "Why don't you get yourself a real truck" and you just laugh with them.
3) You know you drive a ranger when you can put a cap over it and people think you have an SUV.
4) You know you drive a ranger when You replace the plugs and wires after 5 years and it performs like it did when it was brand new.
5) You know you drive a ranger when 6 years later your still waiting for a major repair.
6) You know you drive a ranger when you have a 2wd Edge and everyone just "knows" that you drive a 4 X 4!
7) You know you drive a ranger when you can spend a couple thousand on customizing it and never, ever see anyone else driving the same truck as what you have.
8) You know you drive a 5 sp 3.0 ranger when you can blow by other cars on the highway and everyone wonder what's under the hood.
9) You know you drive a ranger when your job transfers you 40 miles away and you say "no problem, I'll just use my truck to get me there and back every day"
10) You know you drive a ranger when think about trading it or giving it away and "just can't do it"!
11) You know you drive a ranger when you can think of 10 responses to this question real quick!

Best one yet. This one's happened to me a few times, with my friends thinking that my transmission and clutch were going out because the shifts were less than silky smooth lol.

you know you used to drive a ranger when you buy someting else and in spite of what everyone around you says (i.e. you'll like it alot better) every time you drive it, it just seems like less.

You know you drive a ranger when you have a 2wd Edge and everyone just "knows" that you drive a 4 X 4!

Don't you love that? or just a plain 2wd xlt.

When driving over a sunflower seed in the road means you have to brace yourself for a loud, teeth-shattering bump that jolts the entire chassis and its loud enough to turn heads because it sounds like someone's vehicle just broke in half
