Just bought this ranger knowing it had a noisy transmission. Once it came out of the shop I fell in love with it. Easy to park, easy to drive and very quiet (fords always are). Plenty of torque from the 2.9 L V6. Twin I beam front suspension, rock solid and rides like a car down the highway. Don't know about the fuel mileage and really don't care if it only gets mid teens. If you're looking to buy one make sure you get one with the Mazda transmission not the Mitsubishi transmission, as the Mazda is cheaper to rebuild and source parts for. No point in throwing away a good running gas engine, but if i can wear the V6 out i plan on a 4BT cummins swap. Great trucks. Built Ford Tough.

I was very fortunate to get this truck from my friend that was the original owner. It was garage kept and drove only in the city. The XLT package is nice and mine has two-tone paint (light blue top/ light gray bottom).

This is a one owner vehicle. It has 263,000 miles on the original and untouched motor, which was built in Ohio, USA. It still starts easily and goes smoothly at 75 mph. The manual transmission has been difficult to shift at times since 60,000. But, it is still the original transmisssion, having been worked on twice. I just keep changing the oil. Nothing fancy, not synthetic.

213,000 miles with no major and very
few minor problems, except a/c not
working at present. Starts easily,
runs great pulling my boat and hauling
all my crap. I've had such good luck
with it that I just bought another
Ranger. I hate to sell this one. It's
running so good that 300,000 seems like
it would be no problem. (4 cyl. by the

This truck has deleverd pizzas, pulled
crew-cab longe bed duellies out of sand
and moved me around the great state of
texas for more that three years. Just
now rolling over 166,000 miles I am
starting to have trouble with the
second clutch. I must say that this
little truck is one of the best
investments I have ever made. I have
collided head on with a wood post metal
rail guardrail at 45 mph and just broke
the supports to the guardrail. I have
taken the motor over 5500 rpm countless
times while spanking small import cars
with flashy bodywork. Only small
repairs, such as a waterpump at
145,000, and the normal tune up and
brake jobs needed.
