Default Re: What do you love most about your Ranger?

i love the manual transfer case the most.. well, it was the main reason i bought the truck that i bought.

but rangers in general are a great platform... and people in the community are another plus

I love how reliable it is even at 137k and how satisfying it is to see an obstacle in my path and just say..... I got this!!!

i like the feeling that i can just jump in it and go anywhere i could ever want to, and not worry about breaking down, getting stuck, weather conditions, snow.

i love being able to use it like a giant motorized wheelbarrow to move firewood, tools, engines and anything else that'll fit in the bed around.

i love being able to throw the camper shell on and not have to worry about lodging

i love the fact it has fantastic headlights and driving lights

i love that it's a 4x4

i love that it's got a rear sliding window.

1. That it still fires right up like new with 200,600+ miles.
2. That it's been paid for since 2002.
3. That the camper shell allows me to sleep in it-anywhere. (yes, you can do "it" in a Ranger with a shell)
4. Very easy to fix when it breaks.
5. That the Mothers chrome polish trick really did make the headlights like new, compared to the standard auto wax polishing of them.
6. That I just checked the oil, and it's just now gets dirty after all them miles.
7. That I can pull the 60/40 seat out, and carpet clean them to look like brand new.
8. That the 4x4 has never worked, nor have I ever needed it with BF Goodrich TA's.
9. That it was totalled by the insurance company once, and I bought it back. (had to replace the back window, and a tailight, a piece of cake).
10. That it's MINE.

Has there ever been a "who has the most miles thread"?

I always wondered what Ranger platform was the most reliable...
