1998 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Extended Cab SB


Can't say much more than the title. Have owned this truck for about two years now and the one thing that stands out is that it will go just about anywhere. Have taken it up 45 degree hills with no slippage in mud and snow and it tows my 16.5' bass boat as if it was not even there. Have experienced some of the normal, minor problems of this model but all of the info available on the web makes fixing hem a breeze.

Best Features

IFS - Standard Ford bolt pattern - Comfortable front seats - modifiability (if that is indeed a word)

Worst Features

Better MPG - better stereo equipment - include an overhead console like the explorer and widen the truck and release the four-door Ranger line in the Us for cripes sake.
