OK, but better out there.

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


Not a bad little truck, extended cab has come into handy with putting hunting and fishing stuff right behind the driver seat. Stepside gives a trendy look but doesn't do much good with the Tanoe cover. Got the 3.0V6 with the 5speed automatic and it has little trouble hauling half a ton and towing 3/4 of a ton which is pretty exceptional for a small truck. Only problem I have had was the master fuse blowing and the alternator not charging the battery and the truck dying while driving through town. (Not fun at all.) Overall 8/10.

Best Features

Stepsides gives a pretty cool look, and the 29'' Bighorn Maxxis tires on it give it an agressive look. Engine has no problem doing what you would expect a small truck to do, but it would be nice having the 4.0V6 for a little extra power.

Worst Features

Gas mileage and center console fixed, bad stock radio, some electrical problems. Getting about 17-18MPG if I really baby the truck, which I don't mind, but expect better from a small truck. Center console breaks easily, every time I put my elbow in it to get my keys it bends inwards.
