1997 Ford Ranger STX 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

I was told before buying that it was under powered. But I have found the 4.0L engine to have plenty of power. The seats are very comfortable.Gas mileage could be a bit better but I don't baby my vehicles either. This is my first 4x4 and I will never do without 4wd again. The only repairs I have had in the 2 years I have owned this truck is replacement of a couple of sensors in the EGR system and the 2 front u-joints on the front axles have been replaced. I have been told that the u-joints usually need replaced at around 75000 mi and mine lasted 87000 so I can't complain.

Favorite Features

auto locking hubs for the 4x4, very good seats, great factory sound system, the fit and finish of exterior that with a little care has this truck still looking like it just rolled off of the show room.
