2000 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB


Bought truck at 60000 miles. Looked and ran good but immediately ran into trouble, while on trip left front abs brake failed. Cost 550 bucks at dealer for new rotor pads and wheel bearing because sensor is part of the bearing. 2 years later same scenario on other side. Also front axle stared growling, haven't fixed that yet, as need another 12oo bucks for this. Now at 98000 miles relegated to only driving in winter, as it is now a carportqueen. Also inside box rotting out, although plastic outside looks like new.

Best Features

Interior nice. Looks good externally, handles nice. Good off road.

Worst Features

Why not make the whole box of plastic? And why re-engineer abs system for simpler and cheaper repair
