2002 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I haven't had many problems with this truck. It off roads great, it tows a lot and it looks great. I have a friend with a Tacoma and it has nothing compared to my truck. The difference is a go cart and a real truck. I have 31" tires and a 2' lift and abuse my truck like you wouldn't believe. But it takes it and wants more. I would strongly recommend this truck to anyone.
I love the 4wd and the ride is absolutely smooth. The mileage stinks but if you want an all around great working truck, this is it.
Bring up the mpg. I get around 15 mpg in the city and about 22 on the highway. Other than those two things, I can't think of any bad things about this truck.
