Default Re: F150 or ranger...

( i think a tonneau cover might be pushing it but ask for that as well )

Please note that a ranger that is to your liking and in your budget could be worth the wait (plus its more maneuvreable )
Yes, I'd like to have a ranger and it is sexy.
However, I cannot be patient forever (I lost my car 3 weeks ago and that was my only ride lol) That's why I am so desperate to buy a car asap. It's almost a month from car accident.
Thanks for your advice and encouragement! I love to have a ranger!

my big ass F-150 has a sharper turning radius than my ranger. lol But i still agree, if a ranger is what you want just hold out untill you find one, they are out there, just have to be patient.
I like F150 but now my favorite is ranger! lol
Even if I prefer big car, I love ranger and it is just right size for me.
But as I said all the time, I am very patient even if I have no car at all.
(I ride a bicycle for commute to campus. It is about 3-4 mile with little hills lol) This is the reason why I think about other truck instead of ranger.
I really thanks for your information and advice!!
