1998 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

had some initial problems with brakes GEM and door latches..bought with 83K miles. 1. needed new drums as the originals had already been turned...fixed. 2. problems with door latches (lube) and GEM module (dome light)..fixed. basically everything the consumer reports metions...brakes and electrical If you want HP, don't consider the 3L OHV engine...buy the 4L SOHC engine up front. 4X4 is barely adequate with the 3L...(my opinion of course)..and no amount of chipping will put a shine on this turd...but 3L is ok if get-up-and- go is not an issue for you. 3L is a dependable engine though..believe me, it is dependable.

Favorite Features

general setup of the cabin...and Ford truck drive feel..This is a real truck..even though it is a compact..feels like the ford my Dad taught me to drive.

Suggested Improvements

more power..raw merciless power...dodge dakota V8 power..feed the machine!!!..feed the machine!!!
