Default 2002 Ford Ranger and now 2006 Ranger

I'm on my 2nd Ford Ranger!

I purchased my first in 2002 brand new and had it right up until a cab driver pulled in front of me at 380 000 km's on my odometer, and thus wrote it off

I'm now on my 2nd.. I was lucky to find a 2006 with only 60 000 k on it!

I have 2 issues with these Rangers....

1) The doorlocks..... they don't work very good,,, put key in and it doesn't turn easily.. have to jiggle a little bit and gets worse the colder it gets (both trucks did the exact same issue... my 02 got soo bad that after a while the key wouldn't even unlock and I had to swap out the lock cylinders!
the 2006 I have now is startin to get harder to unlock!!

2) these ford rangers EAT front sway bar links and bushings!!
the factory links usually go between 70-90k
(just replaced mine on my 06 at 77K... remember replacing my 02 at around that same k... and also not long after that they needed replacing again ie: 110k


otherwise my 02 never really left me stranded.. I'm hoping for same with my 06
