Great truck for anything!
By LoneRanger on
1999 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Extended Cab SB
I bought this truck with 100k on the clock and have put 120k on it since for a total of 220k miles!!! It has the 3.0 in it and its the best truck I have ever owned, it has never let me down. Other than normal stuff i.e. brakes tires and a few ball joints its been problem free. I would buy another ranger in a second. Only downfall of the truck is the ride. Front susp. is a little whooped out. Also rangers are known (in the north) for the rear shackles rotting out which mine have. A $100 fix if you do it yourself. And rear springs could be stronger. I haul dirt bikes 3 times a week all over Ohio and its perfect. Buy a Ford ranger.
The truck just loves to drive and won't stop. Drove from OH to NC with 200k miles and not a problem. And AC blasts ice cold!
Rear shackles and rear springs need to be stronger. And the tailgate bottoms tend to rust. But its a perfect little truck.
