89' Ranger — took a fully stock 4 cyl ranger, put a 351w in it and shaved everything. Repaired the frame strengthened it and had to custom install and fabricate most of the wiring and fuel system

Pros: V-8 in a lil truck

Cons: V-8 in a lil truck

One Of The Most Reliable Vehicles Ever Built In My Opinion And Best Light Truck Ever Built. — I love this little truck because it is always there when I need it. This truck has its minor fixes, but it is usually never something that affects the major operation of the truck. Every day when I go outside my Ranger starts right up and runs like a champ. I think the best proof of this was leaving it sit for two months during winter with only a quarter tank of gas going outside when it was -20 and having the thing start right up. It may be frustrating to deal with all the minor fixes, but hey this vehicle is old and was cheap so what can you expect. It is the perfect vehicle for someone who is looking for a cheap daily driver and a vehicle that can be used to carry medium sized loads.

Pros: Runs good, reliable, practical, economical, useful

Cons: Minor repairs here and there

180.000 Miles On It And Motor Still Runs Like New 2.9l V-6 — my dad bought the truck brand new and my mom gave it to me when dad passed and with the exception of a slave cylinder and brakes it has been virtually maintenance free..dad always said to keep the oil changed regularly and the only oil that was allowed in his shop was and still is valvoline.and it towes my boat around on a regular basis.

It's One Repair After Another - Is This Usual? — Love this truck but the repairs are beginning to make me hate it. Everything is either being repaired and has been repaired. Now I have a leak somewhere - replaced radiator, water pump, all hoses - thinking it's the engine seal???
