Default Had my Ranger for a week now.

I've had my Ranger Sport for a week now and I love the hell out of it!

Two observations: 1. I wish I had bought one with the 60/40 split seat instead of the buckets and console. I know I am in the minority on THAT one. LOL!
2. I know it is normal, well I guess it is, there a lot of surface rust. The differential housing is covered with it. No biggie, but I'll have to paint it in the near future.

175 miles on her as of tonight.

Nice!!! As for the bench...BOOO!!! As for the surface rust, if you want to keep that down, WD40 will help till you get it painted. Then get POR-15. It will bond and kill rust.

I don't know I had really good bench seats in my 97 XLT. they were really comfortable, but functionality wise they sucked. Too bad we can't combine the 2. function like bucket seats but still comfortable as a bench seat.

I liked the 60/40 in the XLT 4X4 I test drove better than the buckets in the sport I bought. To be honest, I researched the hell out of the Ranger before I bought one, but I missed the part about how you could get a 60/40 in a Sport.

The 60/40 just looks more traditional to me.

I just wish you can combine the function of a bucket seat with a bench seat. That way both don't have to get out to reach something behind the seat. Yet it will still be comfortable. Bucket seats kill my back some when it's cold and my left leg tends to go numb after about 2 to 3 hours driving.
