This Ford Ranger is my second in a row. I purchased this one because it has air conditioning and I need it here in South Florida. I have maintained it on schedule and have garaged it whenever possible. The only large expense has been the clutch. Because of the position of the slave cylinder it is impossible to service the slave without removing the housing for the master cylinder, too. So, clutch work is expensive. All else is original and works well.
The little engine sips gas, yet hauls all the junk I need to haul. Also, the 5 speed overdrive allows me to do up to 80 on the highway with no problem. Rear antilock brakes were a bonus for 1992.
Not much interior space for dry hauling. It is not an extended cab. I had to add the bedliner and tie down posts. I have a net in the back for small light loads.
