1998 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB


Besides the automatic, my Ranger has been bulletproof. I off-road as a hobby, and this truck has taken me everywhere without ever breaking a thing. The 3.0 V6 is bulletproof, and the 4x4 always works. I replaced the hubs with manual hubs to get rid of the vacuum assist, and it's been great. The truck is comfortable, and it has been on long trips with no complaints. These magazines are bought out by Japanese manufacturers, so they never have anything decent to say about American vehicles. Well, the Ranger disproves it all. A solid, well built and well priced vehicle. I will be buying another Ford Ranger for my next vehicle.

Best Features

3.0 V6 reliability, manual transmissions are bulletproof, off road capability is great. Truck is reliable!

Worst Features

Offer a solid front axle, none of this IFS minivan stuff. A V8 would be nice.
