    That's one of the reasons I bought it. I am still in the market for a smaller truck. Very light. Worked well.

    With gas prices back down the price of larger trucks is going back up, and smaller coming down.

    Cool, I wouldn't mind scoring a Ranger on the cheap. How much can you tow with a stick and the four-cylinder?

    I used to tow a 185 Sullair or IR with my '87 Toyota. Probably wasn't the best idea. But, I'm looking for an automatic, not a stick. It goes back to the knees issue. Just a more enjoyable ride for me if it's auto.

    I had a Ranger (jeez, that sounds dirty), never was comfortable with it. I went to F-150 trucks and still have my third one with over 200K. :clapping:
