My Ranger was given to me when I got my license back in 2009 from my grandpa. It only had 211,XXX miles on it. Well now it has 286,675 and still going strong. Have never had a problem, gets me from point A all the way to point Z even. Couldn't have asked for a better first vehicle. The truck may not be the prettiest thing on the road but who cares, its very dependable and gets fairly good gas mileage. Can't really complain with 18-20 around town and 22-26 on the highway. The only serious thing that needed to be replaced was the battery cable which was a cheap and easy fix.
I have had this truck in our family for about 4 years so far, when we got it it had roughly 100,000 miles give or take and 4 years after words it has 212,856 miles and I am having the transmission rebuilt by myself because my oldest brother roasted 4th gear, input shaft, and the counter gear but he drove it like he stole it. I live in Illinois and it has no rust anywhere on it.it has the 3.0L v-6 a great engine, and the F27A 5-speed tranny.i would recommend this truck for anyone but you just cant find them anymore that's the main problem people have.
i have had the truck for about a year
now, and i must say, stock the truck is
peppy but after a few modification the
truck has potential. i have a 93 Ford
ranger splash with the 3.0 v6, i just
put 1300 into it, new clutch, slave
cylinder,timing chain, water pump,fan
clutch, and rear transmission seals.
Great truck though, its Ford Tough
The motor, Just by putting a dyno max
turbo muffler with 2" tips and 2 1/4
piping all the way back from the header
to the muffler" No cats" and an intake
along with the new heavy duty clutch i
hae gotten about an extra 15 hp i love
More Weight in the rear. i almost kill
myself in the rain. Also Make a better
tranny for it.
Ok, it's a little small, but I could
always rely on this truck. I hauled
music equipment, mountain bikes, and
people in this bad boy, and I'm talking
TRIPS! I had no reservations about
taking it far from home for a getaway,
and it was perfect for me and my
girlfriend. Don't get this if you have
kids, or if you're a big and tall type.
The 93 ranger is WAY reliable and super
easy to maintain. I would advise to get
the king cab, however. It is a SMALL
3.0 engine is the best engine FORD ever
put out. I am NOT a fan of Ford
vehicles or what's in them, but this
was a great engine
