A Great Compact Truck
By 4x4RangerGuy on
1998 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB
This truck is great! 3.0L V6 is
incredibly reliable, and powerful
enough for all basic tasks. Off Road
package really helps when four
wheeling. Front grille looks tough,
just like a Ford should be. Rear hops
around a little bit, could use a
little more weight. 4x4 works
seamlessly, but is overcomplicated,
expensive to repair, and not
incredibly strong. Auto tranny is
alright, could be beefed up a little,
but it keeps the engine in the right
RPM range. Mileage is great with the
3.0, and it is an incredibly reliable
little engine. Overall, Great truck!!!
Suspension stance, alloy wheels,
RELIABLE engine, great new looks,
skidplating, easy to use interior.
Offer better tires on Off Road
package, offer manual hubs and t-case.
