Ironic isn't it? Almost was allowed to take the part I needed off a fleet truck but it was 3.0 so not what I needed.

Ha! Glad I'm not the only one constantly searching craigslist for Ranger parts, and going outside to smoke and staring at my truck and thinking-"hmm...yellow fog lights or clear? Chrome wheels or black?"

when everyone behind you on the road automatically gets in a different lane because they assume that your truck is really slow and that they're going to have to pass you

anyways, you know you drive a ranger when you do this....

with two different rangers....

in the same parking lot.....

and cry a small tear because yours is stock and not a stepside

edit: btw if anyone can tell me anything about the yellow one let me know. It didn't have a bl (no gap in the rear wheel well) so is it just a Tbar crank or what? Not really counting the tires its got about 3 inches on me i'd say
You drive the same truck as me. Mine is deep wedgewood blue, which always gets confused for purple or black. Anyways, do you have a tbar crank or is that a 4x4? I HATE the front take on mine :/

When u see a small parking spot and parrallel park into it and say "this is why I like small trucks...if i had a huge truck I would still be looking for a spot to park and have to walk further".

Many times I have seen large truck pull up to a spot look at it and then drive off because they cant fit into it...and I go up and park right into it...
