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!
Fun to drive.
Great mileage, even now.
Awesome service recordG
eared right for a 4 cylinder.
For $11K, I would not be out if it quit
right now.Money well spent.
More power from 2.3L.
Stronger springs, but then who actually
hauls bricks with a small truck-not a
Chevy owner anyway.
