    It looks like a Tacoma and a raptor had a love child. My 07 Tacoma has a tow rating of 6000 why would they only hit mid 5s

    My guess is Ford would shoot for a minimum of 7k towing.

    its not a work truck IMO. I think its a personal truck,
    Something Id consider buying for my wife.

    The 2.8 and 3.0 duramax engines coming out for the lil gm trucks arent work diesels, those are europe style economy diesels... again, Totally consider buying one for my wife.

    Then again, I'll likely buy her a 2019 Dodge Ram Rebel.
    We're looking for a replacement for the 2008 tundra TRD... all those trucks are in consideration for a personal rig for her.

    want a little work truck, find something old and used.
    there's plenty older rangers from the early 2000s out there than can be had.
    that v6 (I think it was a 4.0) is a monster.
    I used to have a 2000 ranger with a little plow and a sander with tha6 v6 and the thing was still a rocket.
    Was ridiculous with power in the summer when that stuff was dismounted.

    I drove a 2010 with the 4.0 v6 for 5 years and 90,000 miles in a 15 square miles area. It had a 30 gallon tank with a large steel frame, a mister blower, 4 gallon sprayer, and about 100 pounds of extras all summer. The only problem it ever had was a flat tire. And less than 16mpg, plenty of power.

    We had a Ranger farm truck when I was a kid. Some of those little trucks are damn reliable though. Ours carried an auxiliary fuel tank with seed for our farm and we went way over the payload capacity everyday and it was just fine. It would squat about 6-8in with 100 gallons of fuel and a few seed bags in the back.

    Your wife will have a nicer truck than most of us. Based off the women in my family i’d never trust them with a truck but I hope you trust yours with one.

    I’m not married. That’s why I have nice things. I Guess you could say in my family it’s a joke that the women are bad drivers. My mom hits quite a few curbs.

    Would’nt be a problem if she was in a truck
    Then she’d just jump curbs instead

    I’m married
    I have nice things
    So does my wife
