Yes they are tanks. I had a guy tell me he had one and was hit dead on front center, and was able to get out n walk away-when the front was halfway back in the motor bay. Said the inside never moved, and he was sitting there in his seat totally unharmed.

I honestly think, that the only things that could make these better from the factory, is:

solid front axle
full boxed frame
beefier drivetrain/axles
coilovers instead of torsion bars
4doors with 6foot bed option.


And that's mostly convenience stuff too...

It looks like Ford is going to make some dough from both of us. I went to check on the repair progress on our 05 and got a look at the replacement box, ( a used metallic brown box that will be resprayed Sonic Blue.) I will take my Cold air kit off, as well as my screamin demon coil, livewires and new spark plugs as well as other misc. parts and use them on a new Ranger. I hate the thought of a car payment, being I am retired and on a fixed income but I guess that's the way it goes sometime.

thats just a quick road trip. Back when I was in the service, I would drive alone, on a 1200 mile one way trip home, twice a month, non stop, except for gas.
