I prefer the more modern 2.3L over the 2.5L for performance and the fact that the 2.3L doesnt have 8 spark plugs that are PITA to change

not true man. i love my 3.0L in this ranger and in my last ranger. just because it doesnt have a ton of power and REally good gas mileage doesnt make it a bad engine. its very reliable when taken care of. (most engines are) but even when neglected it runs like a champ. I hot rodded the shit outta my 96 and never had a single problem with the engine even drove it 20K miles with a cam shaft position sensor that was completely destroyed and u couldnt tell. i love these engines. sorry if u disagree and the 96 got 23 mpg mixed highway and city and country roads. my 03 3.0L gets about 16 city with ac on and 18 without idk about the highway yet

I was just joking around man. the 2.5 and 3.0 have the same close to the same power. I rather have the gas milage then the 3.0

I'm not putting down the other engines they are very good engines as well. and i'm not saying the 3.0 is the best thing every it is way underpowered. but its the engine i will always trust day in and day out. and i deliver pizza in my truck so it has to be reliable. 140k and counting
