my big ass F-150 has a sharper turning radius than my ranger. lol But i still agree, if a ranger is what you want just hold out untill you find one, they are out there, just have to be patient.
Oops, heard through the grapevine that the 4.2 was inline 6. Funny considering he was the owner of said engine lol

Figure out what you need the truck for what kind of stuff you want to haul. The size of city you live in and think down the road if your going to have kids or not.

Full size would be very helpful but I do not haul big stuff everyday.
I am not married yet and live by myself.
I am moving a lot and carry many stuff but not haul big stuff everyday (only haul big stuff when I moving or help out somebody)
Thank you for your advice!
