single cab edge's FTW!!!

the single cab edge's are the best looking small size single cab trucks out there. I have plenty of room in my truck. Never have had a problem with room. well only when i try to fit three people in the cab it gets small quick lol And if he needs more room just invest into a tonneau cover. and the only problems with a 3.0 is a cam synco like stated above and if its a 5-speed the slave cylinders are prone to go out. i have been threw 2 already. not cheep either... oem one's are junk so i went napa and i've been good so far.


and the best part about owning a ranger. Modding them is cheep and extremely fun!! just take a look at what you could do with a single cab. pics of my ranger from stock to now.
warning: modding the truck is extremely additive lol

I hated mine. But that's probably because it was 4x2, the only thing "Sport" about it was the decal and painted bumpers, and it liked trees wayyy too much.

the 4.0 will say 4.0 SOHC pretty big right on top of the engine, so its pretty easy to tell which engine you're dealing with.
alright whatever it comes with a few extra options so thats what I meant
