2008 Ford Ranger XL 2dr SuperCab Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Great off road. The fx4 upgrade is a good platform to build an off road weekend warroir like mine is. Fits 33x12.5x15 with little rubbing the 3" lift help with tht. Found tht back jump seats pretty much useless unless your verticaly challenged. The 4.10 gears are tourqie and helps me pulls damn near anything. 4.0l motor has tons of power. Chiped mine tho little better fuel mileage that way plus the extra hp didn't hurt. Although my F-150 is better on fuel. Very solid feeling truck. Well built. Upgraded fx4 interior is sharp and functional. Light aregood and bright. Easy to drive and hardly any blind spots. Built Ford tough!

Best Features

4.10 gears, super low gear reduction in 4 low. All the torque you'll ever need in a 1/4 ton. Rancho suspenion to start with. Easy to drive and the confident feel you get from a full size truck

Worst Features

Get rid of the front torsion bar suspension. Me and every other off roader hate them. Coil is the way to go. Air box is a bit low. Factory skid plates are useless. Make the BFG all terrains stock again
