Since 92, I have owned 3 ranger 4x4's.
A 92,98 and 2004. I wish I had my 98
back. I had 2dr's and bought a 4 dr,
thinking my 5 yr old daughter would
like it better, WRONG! It's noisy, on
the highway and the engine makes more
noise than the 98 4.0/v6. I see short
cuts, like mud flaps, no skirting in
wheel wells, high back buckets that are
comfortable but lots of blind spots. I
rate the 04 at a 2 because I think Ford
was more interested in the F-150 and
caturing the market with that model,
thus leaving the best selling small p/u
out of the picture for 2004.
