I bought the truck completly stock with a 3.0L V6 2 wheel drive with 56,000 miles on it. I then turned around put an American Thunder series flowmaster exhuast system on it with a K&N air filter on it. Later on I put a 3 inch lift kit keeping the same rims but putting 31 inch BFG Mud-terrians on it and the stance is really nice. Before all the add ons were put on it, I got great gas mileage on the truck but afterwards, the gas mileage stinks. But other than that, light towing and going around town isn't bad. But if you are looking for strong performance in a small truck, look elseware.
The sound system in the truck. For being stock, it sounds awesome.
The interior, offer more options for luxury like leather seats and a moonroof, and possibly a crew cab would be nice on a ranger. People are looking for good truck with decent gas mileage but are also still needing room for families.
