They can go practically anywhere
They can take abuse (Trust me lol)
They can last basically forever (If taken care of)
They can haul A LOT (Had 1/2 ton of gravel in mine over the summer)

I'm experiencing that right now. My ranger is at the shop to get the heater motor replaced which my extended warranty covers but the workers are taking forever! At least they gave me a rental. Still love my ranger though.

Let's see..........

-My ranger has never failed me on the road
-Can be taken anywhere
-Many ideas to mod
-Cool truck to show off

Also I was involved in an accident earlier this year with a Lexus and a Gmc truck. I was stopped at a stop light when the Gmc truck hit the Lexus and the Lexus bumped into me on the rear bumper. The Gmc and the Lexus had damages and mine walked off with only a damaged hitch cover!

I switched from my old 1993 ford f150 5.0 5 speed for my 1994 ranger xlt 4.0 automatic and it was the best decision i ever made. I love this little truck and ive only driven full size trucks. And my buddy works for waste management and his work truck is a 98 ranger 4.0 automatic. And its got over 320000 on it and running strong and most of that is spent hauling a 5x8 enclosed trailer while hauling around 1000 pounds of trash in cans. Anyways rangers are damn good trucks and im proud to be a owner of a ranger
