Hey guys,

Im about to buy a winter beater Ranger an was wondering if there are any years to stay away from??? I know the only engne to have is the 4L, but if I find a 3L besides the loss of power is their any other reason to stay away from it?? Standard or auto?? I had an 85 Bronco II way back when and it had a 5 spd, it seemed like a really weak tranny, are the autos any better??? So thanks for any tips guys and I look forward to pickig your guys brains :D Oh, so im looking at a 93 4x4 Ext Cab 4L manual....good choice or keep on looking?? Thank you,

3L isn't a bad engine...just not that much more powerful than 4 cyl and gets almost as bad mpg as the 4.0. I've had a 5sp manual and prefer the auto that I have now.
