Tacoma owner here who likes Rangers

Hey guys, so yes I'm a Tacoma owner but I have always liked Ford Rangers. I thought I'd join the site to learn more about them.

I don't know how you guys feel about Tacomas, but I personally don't have anything against other trucks at all - I think Rangers are awesome.

I posted some pics if you're interested in what I drive.

Thanks. The bumper is made by Relentless Fabrication. He's a small fabrication company who is mainly doing stuff for tacomas. I got the rear bumper also.

I like both the front and rear bumpers and it would be awesome if he made some at an affordable price for the Ranger

I figured there would be tons of aftermarket stuff for rangers. I like them because they are smaller in size - kinda like the older tacomas. I think rangers are the only real compact size trucks out there. They seem better for trails and stuff like that.

they are the only small truck left for sure, compare a new tacoma to the older tundras. almost the same size wise.

the aftermarket for the ranger can be ok if you know where to look, but its more expensive as there are less manufacturers (for example 4wd lifts for 98+, only option is superlift suspension wise)

What about rangers with long travel suspension? It seems like those are the ones to get if you're planning on going LT.
