All Considering A Very Good Truck ! — Performance is more than Adequate with a 4.0L V6 Ford Engine under the bonnet. Braking being a truck is not the greatest, yet stops well enough. Handling is very good considering it is a Truck and not a car. Build quality is good has needed some repairs here and there, also has some noises being a truck.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Power, 4x4 Capabilities, Load Carrying, Comfortable Ride even for Daily Use

Cons: Very Basic Specifications yet in terms of a Truck less that can go wrong and yet it still has all the creature comforts.

A Very Good Truck — its got 270hp and 282ftlbs i upgraded the brakes and all of the fluids to syenthic, its got a K&N air intake, rancho rs 5000 front and rear shock, oversized factory stock tires they are 255/70/R16. i put awestin black brush gaurd with a hand grande and a skull mounted on the brush gaurd.The bulid quailty is good everything is very easy to work on and bulit very solid. i love the interior carcaol and back seats, with viynel flooring very rugged, the piant needs some work, but i do use it to carry scape metal. very fun to drive around in the speaker system is great, the ride is smoother than most trucks, and plus u can go off road cause its 4x4 can u can take it just about anywhere. i love my truck and i would never sell it and i would recommend this truck to anyone.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: its 4x4 cant have a 2x4 in wv

Cons: Gas mileage 14-16mipg

Good All Around Truck, Does Almost Everything I Want It To — truck does pretty good...looks good cleaned up (color is Sonic Blue). performance is half of what it should be but you cant expect a whole lot from the 3.slow. gets 14-17 mpg no matter how you drive, city or highway.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: nice, smooth, looks good

Cons: get one with the 4.0L instead of the 3.0L

2005 Ford Ranger Supercab Xlt — Overall, I am impressed with the quality of my Ranger. I bought it brand new off the lot in August 2005. 6 months later, I wrecked it by T-Boning a Grand Am. I put the passenger door of the grand am inside the car, and my Ranger only had minor body damage. Very well built truck. will most likely stick with Ford in the future.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very nice small truck, def gets the job done.

Cons: Towing capacity

Overall Very Pleased. Very Reliable And Fun To Drive — Love my Ranger. Decent on gas. Easy to maintain and clean due to rubber floors. Lots of ground clearence with good stability. Bought it with spyed in box liner (only way to go). Not much room if you need to carry more than 2 people though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks great and not bad on gas

Cons: Rides a bit rough and seats are not made for long journeys.  Bit of sway and rear door air noise in high crosswinds.  Rear traction not great in snow/ice
