1997 Ford Ranger STX 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I was told before buying that it was
under powered. But I have found the
4.0L engine to have plenty of power.
The seats are very comfortable.Gas
mileage could be a bit better but I
don't baby my vehicles either. This is
my first 4x4 and I will never do
without 4wd again. The only repairs I
have had in the 2 years I have owned
this truck is replacement of a couple
of sensors in the EGR system and the 2
front u-joints on the front axles have
been replaced. I have been told that
the u-joints usually need replaced at
around 75000 mi and mine lasted 87000
so I can't complain.

Best Features

auto locking hubs for the 4x4, very good seats, great factory sound system, the fit and finish of exterior that with a little care has this truck still looking like it just rolled off of the show room.
