Just wondering what made you go from a BMW to a 4cyl 5spd mini truck?


That's almost like oil & water

Well I am going to keep my Bimmer and play around with some mods maybe supercharge it someday. But honestly a lot of my friends have small trucks and they are so useful. I had a 2002 dodge dakota and loved it. But honestly to much money in gas. From what I have read ford rangers are one of the best small trucks for gas mileage as long as its a 4 cylinder, manual tranny, and 2wd. And I could totally see myself sleeping in the bed of it unlike my car now lol. I also have a dog and am tired of squishing him inside my car. I would like to train him to ride in the bed. Also I hear they are cheap to fix and I can do a lot myself so it should be even cheaper.

5 speed huh? Rangers with manuals have slave cylinder problems. Mine has killed the slave cylinder 3 times in the 4 years I have owned my truck. Some never need one in its life and some like mine drop it every now and then.

Drive with a light foot on the go pedal, shift between 2000 & 2150 rpm. Don't use an ethanol blended gas.
