Default Is the Ford Ranger cool?

I always get made fun of for driving a Ranger at school but i really don't care i love my truck and wouldn't want to drive anything else. There is only 1 or 2 more teens at school that drive a ranger most drive S10's and just any little 4cyl car they can get. so how cool do u think a ranger can be? scale 1 to 10.

I don't really think any truck is cool from the get go, its what you do with them that makes them special. Ideal example is the raptor.



But sometimes, special can go very bad.

The s-10s seem to be smaller on the interior. I do like the dash design tho, that kinda wrap around feel. The steering wheel feels nice also. And the 4.3 vortec is a pretty peppy little motor. In all fairness tho, any vehicle can and will be only as good as the owners treats it. My buddy from grade school has a 93 1500 with a 4.3 std. that truck just keeps on running, tuff little bastard!

after getting this '01 with the sohc motor, I would like to go head to head with an s-10 4.3 vortec. I think the ranger would take it on the strip
