Here are some pictures (well, hopefully, if i post them right LOL), of "my" new Ranger. It is actually owend mostly by my parents, but whose counting...

Anyway, it is a 2002 4x4 Ranger XLT with the 4.0L v6. I wish I could afford to have one of these-:gmctruck: but i cant afford the extra cost of the insurance, and extra gas it would take, LOL.

Nice Ranger. Be glad you dont have the Wrangler RT/S's on there that come from the factory, those are junk. Those Laredos should be decent.

What have you been towing with that thing!?! It looks as if the bumper is bent Up!

Anyway, once I get rid of my S-10 in 1 or 2 years, A Ranger is what I'm getting.

Thanks for the replys. I just got the truck last thursday, so i am just getting used to it. One thing i really am NOT happy with about it is how much more gas it burns then my other ranger did. Might look into a K and N air filter for it.

How many miles are on it? I switched my Dodge diesel over to synthetics all the way through and gained about 1.5 mpg. If there's not too many miles on it, you might consider synthetics.

Looks nice! I didnt think the 4.0 v6's were all that bad on fuel. A friend from school has one and gets between 19-24mpg.

Its got about 43000 miles on it. I am pretty sure i SHOULD be getting about 20 mpg or more... When I checked it i estimated i got about 12mpg. But the driving conditions were not real fair for the truck in that test... lol...:rolleyes:

Well, here is a picture from earlier today...it rained a little last night, so i just couldnt resist. 'Course when i got in some real bad spots i wanted to go through, I found out my 4x4 didnt work...figgured out an hour later it was just a fuse messed up.

I got a 95' ranger 4x2, white. I cant wait to get rid of it. No complaints about the thing, I just need more truck. Overloaded trailers, routinely exceeding payload, general wear and tear, its taken a beaten. Next spring, the hunt is on. Hoping for a plow.
