Sporty truck- Caution: Check the Frame!

1999 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

I purchased the truck five months ago from the second owner and put on about four thousand miles since. With an automatic tranny, the 3.0 v-6 engine is very under powered and performs like a 4 cyl.. When I purchased the truck, the body looked in excellent shape. I noticed rust on the chasis, but it wasn't until later when I really checked it out, that I found severe rusting on the inside of the frame. This needed considerable cleaning and a rust killer application. Also, the body mounts were rusted severely and later cracked, requiring the bed to be replaced at a cost of over $2000. Checked on web and found others with same problem. Same mfg supplied Toyota truck frames, but Toyota recalled.

Favorite Features

Nice looks, inside and out. On the fly 4 wheel drive worked great!

Suggested Improvements

The 3.0 is OK, but would suggest the larger V-6. Ford should recall all Rangers with these defective frames, as Toyota has done. (find details on web)
