Its A Tank — performance is a bit low. handling sucks, brakes fade, and no acceleration. but its got tonz of torque. need repairs about ones a week and has a squeaky idler pulley. appearance is devising but its still pretty sweet. gas mileage haha 7 city and 9 high way but parts are cheap to fix it. fun as hell to drive 4.9L with a 5 speed with 35s and 4.10 limited slip front and rear. soo yea its pretty fun on the trails

Pros: rarely gets stuck

Cons: its a ford

I Think I Built A Monster. — Built 5.0 (306ci), true dual flowmasters, shorty headers, mild cams, hardened pistons, 4x4, 32x11.50 Mickey Thompsons, lifted.

Pros: If it is off road, I can do it. Great suspension articulation, just enough power, loud, killer sound system, leaps large inclines and crosses muddy trails in a single bound.

Cons: If it is off road, I can drive it. Seriously, this thing couldn't pass emissions to save my life. And 10 mpg.

My First Vehicle — I picked it up for 500 bucks and got a year's use out of it. Had a strong 302 and 5 speed in it. It was pretty ugly, but it was very reliable. I fried the clutch out of it and it's scrap metal now.

Pros: Strong engine, reliable, the 4 wheel drive saved me a few times, solid.

Cons: It got pretty bad gas mileage and was pretty well rusted out.

Just a better truck overall. Better looking, more powerful engine, more payload, cheaper to find, and easy to work with.

"Personal opinion but I like the front end of the truck better."
Back Seats Ranked 1988 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Scottsdale 4WD worse.
"Neither truck I drove had back seats. So I just said Ford because I know how Ranger vs S10 rear seats are and I assume they would be relatively comparable to their full size counterparts."
