I bought this truck new in '94 and I used it every day for 10 years until I got a family minivan. I have towed concrete mixers, hauled scrap and lumber, use it weekly to carry stuff to the dump. I carried the kids in the extended cab (when they were little, not a lot of room there.) The truck never let me down and today I still have it (though it's semi-retired)and use it 3-4 times a month to go to the dump. It has 167,000 miles on it and now my daughter just got her lisense and she drives it daily to school and about. It still gets 22+MPG. Never did more than routine maint and replaced the clutch 2x. What a great investment in 1994!

Bought the truck new,and almost 8 years
and 168K later it still runs great.It
has lost some of its pep,but is driven
hard.Mostly highway miles,but a lot are
hauling Jeep parts.I haul
the same time. Squat it down with a
load, and the little 4-cyl gives its
all and comes back for more.I hauled 2
loads of bricks that broke the back
springs. Replaced them, and I was back
in business.Built Ford Tough-Heck yeah.
I know guys with full sizes that don't
get as much use. My friends will be sad
when it goes-it is a lot of fun to see
Jeep frames hauled by a SB Ranger. Go
Ranger-168K and counting!
