BIG BLUE DULL BUT RELIABLE

1997 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB
Review
My desire was for high visibility and easy access. Couldn't afford an SUV so bought a basic Ford Ranger. I'm 6'3" and the cab and bench seat give the comfort of a full-size vehicle. Should have gotten speed control for longer drives (legroom is barely adequate for me) but Big Blue is a city truck and llong term comfort and fuel economy isn't a concern. The truck has had one major tune up and regular oil changes. Nothing else. The 97 2WD 4cyl Ranger is reportedly a reliable vehicle and has been so for me. No electrical issues. It's not been driven a lot but regularly and has never failed. Its' a solid and dependable basic set of wheels.
Favorite Features
I live in a hilly city and the peppy get-up-and-go of my 4-cylinder engine never fail to please me.
Suggested Improvements
The 98 Ranger brought I a larger, roomier cab which I wish I'd gotten. Also think the extended cab is a worthwhile option if not for passengers then for storage.
