This review is actually a post ownership review. I owned my Ranger from 1993 to 2000 (87,000 miles), and I must say that it was the best vehicle I've owned to date. The only reason I parted ways with it was because of the birth of my first child, and we needed a more practical second vehicle.
I can't say enough about this truck. All that it requires from you as an owner is routine maintenance. I put my truck through nearly every imaginable combination of use and weather and it never once failed me. Never needed a major repair... actually it never needed a repair of any kind, just replacement of wear and tear parts like brakes.
I miss this truck.
Rugged, dependable, great 4WD system, comfortable, great power, great motor. All around the best truck ever made.
