Default What do you love most about your Ranger?

I'm new here and as I was browsing I saw a thread titled "What do you hate most about your Ranger?"

I figured I'd put a positive spin on that and ask: What do you love most about your Ranger?

I'll start. I suppose listing the year and model type would help too.

I have a 2010 Sonic Blue XLT 4x4

I love babying it, but I also really enjoy using it for what it was made for, having some fun. I live in the Chicago area and we got a huge blizzard this past winter that dropped 22" of snow on my town. I loved the feeling that I could hop in my truck, turn on four wheel drive and blast down the streets while everyone else was stuck with no where to go. I've never had such an empowering feeling from a vehicle before. I also like that if something needs to be done, I can do it. If furniture needs to be moved, something needs to be towed, or someone is stuck, I can actually do something about it. This feeling along with the fact that I've wanted a pickup truck since I was about 14 years old makes me really enjoy driving my Ranger.

How about you? What's your story?

Gas mileage (I got a 2.5 liter), great vehicle to learn how to drive a manual on, very reliable and when things do break, it's easy to work on

I love the fact my tires are 7 years old, but still have 80% of the tread left!
(I only drive 4-5,000 miles a year!)

Sitting up higher in traffic, being rugged, and how beasty it looks.

Also... just all the memories that involved my Ranger one way or another.
