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.

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.

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.
This year's changes to the 1999 Ford Ranger include standard 15-inch silver styled wheels, a class III frame-mounted hitch receiver for V6 applications, and a spare tire access lock.

I'm replacing the (failed) ford differential in my 1999 Ford Ranger with a Detroit TrueTrac. I'm having a problem fitting the TrueTrac with the ABS exciter (tone) ring. The Truetrac doesn't have a mil...
