I bought this Ranger as an used vehicle in 2003; since then I've put just under 100,000 miles on it. It's a XLT regular cab with a long bed and the 4.0 V6/automatic.
While not necessarily in the market for a truck, I needed a vehicle to drive, and it was the right price.
For the most part, it is true that these things last forever and that these things are hard to kill.
However, unless they are taken care of better than perfectly, they have a tendency to attract dents and rust like a magnet.
