Vehicle: 1993 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB

I bought my 93 ranger in October. I've made many mods to this truck and the only thing that i found is horrible is the twin i beam front suspension. Other than that its great on gas, looks (with work. mine has a 2.3 engine 5 spd manual.




93 ranger pretty good on

I've done a lot of work to this truck. New tranny, brake calipers, rotors, stereo, lenses, timing chain and gears, water pump, freeze plugs, new AC, fuel sending unit, gas shocks. Although I inherited it from my brother for free, I've spent over $4200 getting it road worthy again. The paint is still in great shape. Handles well.

This Ranger was purchased new right off the truck. It had 9 miles on it in 6/93. It's now 8/2006 and it has 185,674 miles and still going strong. It still has the original motor and transmission. The V6 3.0 is great, the only thing its needs is a new paint job, no rust on it.




12 years and still going

This is my second Ranger. The first was an '83 that had over 150k and as far as I know is still going. The '93 has been a real work horse for me and now has 100k on it. Basic mechanical wear with very little rust. I live in the Boston area and the winter conditions are hard on all cars. The Ranger has performed well. I am now looking to buy a 2005. Only because I would like some extras this time.




Ten years later, still going

Bought new in spring '93 and it's only at 96K now;still looks/runs about as good as new. Beyond regular maintenance we've done no repairs other than replace a cracked clutch slave and deal with the poorly-designed parking brake. All the heat shields have been removed after they started to fall off (or rattle) over the years. Note: this V6 burned about 1 qt oil every 1,500 miles since it was new-- Ford claimed this was "within spec" and it's never really changed. Re-torquing the intake manifold bolts seemed to help for a while, but it certainly didn't stop the oil use.




Going strong

I bought this truck new in 1993. I have had another vehicle most of the past 10 years, so the mileage isn't too high (80K). Other than the leaks others have written about, no major problems or unplanned expenses. Exterior has held up well. Interior fabrics, carpet, and trim have held up very well. It is relegated to being a hauler & airport parker (to keep my "good" car safe at home), but I'm planning to keep it another 10 years.
