Review

Not incredibly useful when used to haul 4x8 sheets. You need to build a special carrier (2x4s work) to haul panels. Plenty of power. Good for the average truck user.

1990 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

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.


Best Features

Even though this was an XLT, the interior fabric and carpet is very hard-wearing (it helps that mine had dark-tinted windows). Fairly good visibility. Comfortable seats (this one had the split-folding cloth bench seat)


Worst Features

For those who want trucks, make them again! Better rust protection (rust protection to begin with?) Single-piece opening rear window (not the split in the rearview mirror) Cupholders (there are none)

Review

I bought a 1990 ranger ex-cab in 2005 it had 80,000 original miles on it then. I drove that truck in every terrain think able. And it never quit. It was a real nice rig for the price. I bought it for 2500 and sold it in 2009 for 1900 cash. I over 1000,000 miles on it and it only had a few minor hick-ups. Sold it b/c my family out grew it. But I wish I still had it. Best truck ever


Best Features

5 spd manual and manual locking hubs


Worst Features

maybe add a little more storage on the door side panel
