You're comparing a 13 year old chevy to a slightly used ranger, i'd go for the ranger.

And that's not based on my hatred for gm at all.

Maybe a little.






Gm sucks.

Well If you didn't have to lift your truck I would vote silverado, The cab room doesn't compare to an ext cab ranger. The chevy IFS garbage can't take anything more than medium abuse on trails or mud.

I had a 97 Z71 stock height and mud tires, I did really well even in the thickest of crap. My engine wasn't stock either. I spent prob 1500 to gain 50 hp or so. Headers, intake, free flow cat pipe and computer tuner. Truck ran like a scalded ape until the trans went out. I got scammed by a trans shop who got to keep the truck due to an insane repair bill. I know for next time to buy a manual trans or replace the auto trans myself.

Dad's got a 95 Chev half ton 4x4 and I have a 97 Ranger. Both trucks are awesome, and have done everything we've asked of them and then some lol My opinion decide what you want more in the legroom and gas mileage department. Either way you can't go wrong in my opinion. I have a 99 GMC Sonoma that I like too, it's a bad ass. The trannys on the Chevs can take a shit, but the weak point in my year Ranger is the tranny too. The big thing is making sure they get serviced like any vehicle and how hard you beat on it.

======================================
Your comparin a small truck *Ranger* to a fullsize *Silverado*, not a fair comparison IMO!

If your lookin for economy = Ranger somewhat

If your lookin for room = Silverado

See, a newer ranger to me is nowhere near 12 years old.

Going back, if i could have read your mind, i would have said neither. Those two choices look too random to me.

edit: wtf i didn't see those two replies before i posted, lol
