Not a good truck to

Vehicle: 1999 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB

I had a 99 ford ranger 4.0 liter and they are such gas hogs and the breakes they put on were not good at all and don't want another ranger at all




150k+ miles and it was

Vehicle: 1999 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab SB

I got my 99 Ranger with 11K miles on it. I drove it till it was totaled with ~150,000 miles on it. I was ever so sad to loose my truck. It was fun to drive, got decent enough gas mileage, was super reliable. It never had a hard time starting, AC was still ice cold, and never had anything more than oil changes done to it. It is also VERY safe. My mom and 2 year old niece were in the truck when it was totaled, it slid over 200' on the roof after a tire blew on the HWY. Both my mom and niece walked away with out injury. If you are considering a Ranger, GET IT! You will not be disappointed.




Good little truck

Vehicle: 1999 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB

Had this truck since 2010, bought with 150,000 miles on her. Since then I've changed the brake rotors, pads, brake booster, master cylinder, 02 sensors, wheel cylinders, and oil. Overall this is an excellent truck, the extended cab is roomy enough for 2 at the most. Seats have held up well for a 12 year old truck with now almost 180,000 miles on it. In baton rouge city traffic, I get between 19.5 -21 mpg all city, and my best tank was 25 on the highway!




Worst truck ever

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB

Things started going wrong with this truck early--fairly new & with low mileage--joints, springs, bearings, steering, brake lines, electrical, exhaust. Not reliable at all. This vehicle is a joke really.




Ford tough little truck

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB

I highly recommend this tough little truck! I bought it new and still drive it daily. The only things I've had to do is regular maintenance and tires and the typical things such as alternator at 85,000 and brakes every 20,000 on the front. Following the Ford maintenance schedule keeps it moving along. The 4.0 provides plenty of power.




Very strong small truck

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB

Owned this truck a few years it is strong has about 16ok miles. This truck is stronger than alloy of full sized with plenty of power. My only complaint is the seats are not very comfortable the metal in the seats is poorly located and covered. I expect this truck to last a long time. Air conditioning and heat on this vehicle is top of the line.
