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

Review

I have 135k on the truck and no major repairs, just fluids and exhaust. I however did replace an axle shaft after a guy hit my rear end but I felt lucky considering I was able to still drive it while his car was in a bunch of pieces. I have really beat on this thing bought it from my Dad when i was 17 and took it off roading all the time and have put 2000lbs in the bed a couple of time. The only thing I wish was different was the 4x4 Ford uses a vacuum system to engage the system which always fails. I switched to manual hubs and no more problems. The 3.0 and 4.10 rear end is a pretty nice set up

Favorite Features

4.10 gears, great hauling ability, rated at about 1300 but very composed up till 1800lbs

Suggested Improvements

Get rid of pvh hubs which they did but I would avoid 4x4 Ranger from 98 to 00 unless you are willing to install manual hubs. A limited slip would be nice but not necessary
