I Love this truck!

1997 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB


I (We) bought this truck to replace a
Nissan Wagon that we had. My mother-in-
law had a Ranger pick-up (4 Cyl, SB,
standard Trans) that was a joy to
drive. When we went to get ours, I
opted for a 6 cylinder to haul a
trailer (the 4 Cyl can't handle it). We
got the auto trans for my wife who can
no longer do manual. We got the longest
bed available because I haul a lot of
stuff ( I also work in building supply
and hate short bed pick-ups).

Best Features

The sound system is good. I like the tie down locations in the bed. Sliding rear window is a plus.

Worst Features

Put another stake hole in the center (between the hole behind the cab and near tail gate). Make a 8 foot bed.
