I've noticed this A LOT. When I considered getting a smaller truck a while back, I saw that most LCOs that have a mini truck (with the flatbed/landscape bed), drive FORD RANGERS. Is there a specific reason as to why they do this? I had a Dodge Dakota, and now have a Chevy 1500 (19 years old!), but am considering a Ranger when I end up moving back to Cali. Are there more pros than cons with the Rangers? Another thing, what would be better on my behalf? A 2000 Ranger with 10,000 miles at $6,000, or a 2008 Ranger with 0 miles at $12,500?
