Great little truck

1996 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB


This was my first new vehicle. I got it off the lot
with 12 miles on it. No real complaints. this truck
really is built ford tough. i hit a deer about 2 years
ago. Airbag deployed and the fiberglass pieces and
lights were all messed up. all messed up. got a new
airbag and lights etc and got back on the road. no
engine trouble. radiator was well protected.

she's getting old and bouncy on bumps now tho,
but she's got 170000 miles on it. check engine light
has been on since i hit 50,000 miles. needs a $150
replacement sensor or something, but still runs

Best Features

The stepsides on the bed give it a nice style. reliable. got some pep if tuned up. heats up quick in winter due to the small cab.

Worst Features

check engine light has been on since i hit 50,000 miles. told it was a sensor and this is common. friends with rangers have the same thing happen. Factory supplied jack is too small to put new tire BACK on. it can take em off, but...
