My third Ranger and by far the best to
date. My mileage is 16.5mpg and I
don't baby her either. Love her and
plan on keeping this 4x4. Previous
Rangers are as follows: '97 (2wd 2.3)
had butt loads of rear axle problems
and no umph. I gladly traded it in for
an '02 (2wd 3.0) and really enjoyed it
until the Nebraska winter; needed a 4x4.
Love the flare-side, the '04 front end,
and new HIGH back seats.
The only item on this truck that ticks
me off is the fuse box cover, which
some idiot relocated to the front
passenger kick panel (on the floor). I
had to 'tuck-tape' the panel from the
inside because it kept popping off.
