1998 Ford Ranger Splash 2dr Extended Cab Stepside SB

Review

Owned this 8 years with few problems, but I've been living with flaky stuff like mirrors adjusting only one way, radio cuts on and off, many mystery things. Good truck to drive, but Splash model has a low tow capacity. Looks good. Paint along door and rain gutter peels, discolors easily. Looking back I'm happy it has lasted this long but not happy with the little things. Hardly used the rear seats but the space in the back is useful. Shakes a bit much "sometimes". Quite mysteriously flaky. Pulls a small 2000lb boat OK.

Favorite Features

Looks good and can carry stuff from Home Depot and Lowes. :-)

Suggested Improvements

If they've already addressed the flaky stuff after 8 years great, but my next drive won't be a Ford. Try using solid battery cable clamps instead of cheap hose clamp stuff.
