Rangers...they run, no matter how ugly it gets.

1990 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB


I bought this Ranger as an used vehicle in 2003; since then I've put just under 100,000 miles on it. It's a XLT regular cab with a long bed and the 4.0 V6/automatic.
While not necessarily in the market for a truck, I needed a vehicle to drive, and it was the right price.

For the most part, it is true that these things last forever and that these things are hard to kill.
However, unless they are taken care of better than perfectly, they have a tendency to attract dents and rust like a magnet.

Best Features

Even though this was an XLT, the interior fabric and carpet is very hard-wearing (it helps that mine had dark-tinted windows). Fairly good visibility. Comfortable seats (this one had the split-folding cloth bench seat)

Worst Features

For those who want trucks, make them again! Better rust protection (rust protection to begin with?) Single-piece opening rear window (not the split in the rearview mirror) Cupholders (there are none)
