A sad farwell to a old friend
By Mechaicsville Steve on
1997 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab SB
After the years of abuse today I finally retired my old friend the Ranger. (190,000 miles) Bought this truck with 80k on it and never had any major problems, only repairs were basic repairs, leaf springs and a alternator. This truck has been through a lot, multiple deer strikes, a guardrail or 2 and more and still kept on going. Sadly though the list of problems that started to build up on it at 180K have taken its toll and I had to junk it even though it still runs. Amazing is all I can say after the hell I had put it through. Never burned one drop of oil. It was so good on oil that I would only change it every 10,000 miles!
Reliablity. Best 3000 bucks I ever spent.
A little more leg room, fix the dome light issue (which I am sure by now they have)
