as much as jeeps are cool rigs, rangers have more style, there are way less built up rangers than jeeps. i say make the ranger as capable as the jeep.

If it was me.....CJ7 cause theyre easier and cheaper to lift and what i really really want is a nice lifted vehicle. Idk, i love my ranger though...and jeeps especially that old and jeeps in general can be noisy (like wind blowing through cracks while driving and stuff.) Idk thats a toughy

Coming from an ex Jeep owner, you can and most likely will shake it. They are nothing but a money pit, IMO and if you aren't wheeling them all the time they aren't really that much fun what with the road noise and lack of power.

Then again, I've never driven a CJ. Only a TJ, XJ and whatever the newer style J is, lol.

prunedale, if you had bigger tires on your ranger you'd probably have more fun offroad in it..

My YJ has balls with the 4.2, 5 speed, and 4.10s.
