i hate s10s
rangers are the shit haha

(from me being in the desert scene)
how often do you see a s10 prerunner? 1 in a million
how many times do you see a ranger prerunner? 999,999

IDK how this is in other cities, but in SoCal, you see maybe 1 s10 for every 200 rangers

Ford trucks = best suspension designs (most cases)

look at any chevy suspension - they are complete fucking garbage!!! Hence why most long travel suspension companies - if they even make them, the chevy (as well as dodge, and often toyota but not as much) long travel kits can hardly pull 14-16" travel while a ranger edge kit with no A/C can get 19-20" and some brenthel f150 4wd long travel kits can pull 16"!

dude don't listen to the crap they say. My ranger that i just picked up about a month ago is pretty similar to yours. I have a 98 xlt supercab 3.0 v6 with pretty much the same miles and in green also. Like the other poster said... at first every truck may seem whatever to most and maybe even to yourself, but your truck is whatever you make of it. There are so many different things that you can do over time little by little that will make you appreciate it more.

My OEM intake cracked so i put in a cold air intake to replace it that pretty much cost me under 100, that right there got me stoked. Slap a cat back magnaflow on it too, change out the headlights to a different pair off ebaby that isnt crap, swap out the grill, tires/rims, window tint, new speakers for sound system, a decent lift. But always make sure your truck is running strong and kept up maintenance wise or none of this stuff will matter.

That list of things is what im going for basically, that and im going to try and sand then go flat black on my truck since i have a lot of scratches and minor dents i want to fix. As far as Ranger compared to the s10.. you made the right choice and no not because this is a ranger forum or because i own one. My friend has a s10 around the same year as my ranger and all around interior/exterior/performance the ranger looks way better especially once you start to give it some upgrades.

Stick to it man and do little stuff to it here and there and the truck will grow on you hands down no matter what others have said.
