Great truck for the money
By jsm131 on
2003 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT FX4 Level II 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
First small pickup I have ever owned.
Good performance on the highway and on
twisty mountain roads. Have not taken
it off-road. Mine is a 5-speed
manual. Good shifting, smooth clutch
and excellent take-off with the 4.10
rear end. Actually could use a better
fifth gear ratio. 5th is a little too
close to 4th for long highway driving.
Alcoa rims and BF Goodrich tires. The
use of the stainless trim around the
shift and x-fer case stalks
better fuel economy and better 5th
gear overdrive ratio, turns more than
2500 rpms and 65 mph.
