Seriously, these trucks can handle DAMN GOOD if you lower it, upgrade sway bars, etc. Granted, they're still not "track ready", but man... you have no idea apparently. I'm not dissing you either, just trying to get my point across.

You can really light corners up in a little dropped regular cab Ranger with low profile tires, sway bars, etc..
I have 2 buddy's with 2wd Rangers. Eric with his 30X9.50's, Spencer with his 07 stocker. We drive those trucks like they're on rails and there is no way in hell I'd attempt 70 plus on a 40 mph curve.

Now, on that note I have taken my 4wd Ranger on 32's with no sway bars through the curves at the bottom of Floyd Hill on I-70 in the mountains at 80, the posted speed limit is 55 and I had no idea I was doing 80, but thats different than an onramp posted 35-40 and hitting it at 70.

All ya have to do is picture a 50 mph sharp series of curves in the mountains, 2 lanes both ways with a rock face on your right side at the bottom of a 3 mile long 6% grade.


I'm more trying to get mark to shut up about his lowrider cause it's ruined 2 threads already.

Oh and the Ranger isn't a performance truck for what it's worth.

Man I love driving my truck on the tight mountain roads, I'd have a blast with a lowered truck. I can do 60+ around 25 MPH off ramps and stuff, super fun.

I like the truck and a cute girl drives it a good combo at least she isn't a dumb girly girl. I took my 2wd off road once and decided to lower it when I got stuck in like 5 inches of mud it was very sad but I mean with some offroad tires I think it would be ok.
