I love mine because it is fun to drive, just big enough, yet still great on gas. And because my wife bought it for me.

I also forgot to mention that it has a lot of sentimental value to me because my grandmother bought it for me and she has since passed away.

I love my ranger because I bought the thing when I was 15, drove it for 3 years then parked it for 5. Came time to fire it up again and she started without hesitation. It gets great mileage, rides comfortably, is practical, and it serves as a great memory bank from all my high school years. Many beers drank in that truck, on the tailgate, tons of times getting high with high school buddies in the thing (when I smoked), and plenty of roadtrips to the mountains. It hauls my dirtbike from track to track, it doesnt burn a drop of oil and its got 250,000km on it. The ranger is just a bulletproof little unit that I've loved from day one.

i love my ranger because...

I love my ranger for many reasons. Some sentimenal, some not. I love the truck for its simplicity, agressiveness and for its capability. its small enough for "urban" life and still gets the job done when i need to do work. This truck has always been in my family with the first part of its life with my brother. many o memories have been made in that truck. Its been put through hell and keeps on ticking. It has never failed me, never left me stranded, and has never left me with money in my bang account... all in all i love my ranger and i hope to keep it till the wheels literally fall off. then after that happens i will re-build the sucker and try it again...

I love my Ranger because...
It has great towing capacity, good enough gas mileage, looks really sharp, color changes with different lighting, VERY comfortable while driving, has 100,000+ but feels tight as new, can get things out of bed due to sidestep, was VERY inexpensive to purchase!
(no more toyotas for ME!)

You got that right! My last car was the same color, and I had some people asking me if I got a new car! Cuz it was not the same color as they saw it last time.

Able to haul leaves!

Load number one, Neighbor's yard.


Load number two, our yard.


When I was at the compose pile on my first run, there was 4 other Rangers! No Chevy. heheh Wish I had my camera, there was a newer Ranger, looks like a '08, and had a snow plow on the front.. I've never seen a Ranger with a snow plow before!
