Me too. Though didn't even test drive one... Test drove a couple Rangers and that's it. They're basically all I know!

I used to not like rangers til I started tinkering with my wife's, now I gotta get one! Lol, but I wanna build my own, get a body put a 5.0 in her with a solid axle, 30s and triple stack air bags for street and woods fun. Is that too much?!? XD

When You can replace a clutch in a matter of minutes

When you demolish s10 's and Dakotas despite having a smaller engine

When you get all edgy teaching someone to drive standard in your truck

Lol just the other night I was teaching some of my buddies how and I got white knuckled on the o-shit handle, knowing i just replaced the clutch and transmission less than 2 months ago while they're bunnyhoppin and stalling the hell out of it

I guess I missed the point with my little side track story lol, my point is is that our heavier duty driveline components aren't as cheap as say, econobox cars, if it were an old civic I would have just kind of laughed it off since civics have hundred dollar clutches while our rangers have $350 clutches
