I have never owned an S-10, but I know people who have, and I think that the Ranger holds up better .

My buddy has a 94 S10 SS that has about 220k on it. He has had a fair share of issues, but overall it was a good truck. It now sits on his land as a lot truck. He bought a Jetta 2 years ago. My 99 B2500 (Ranger) has 125k on it and I just drove it 2000 miles from Colorado to New York without a single issue. The SS was VERY quick, but it was built for that. His brother has an 02 Sonoma with ~45k on it. He has had wheel bearing issues, premature tire wear, and other problems. I can't say I have enough information to make a valid decision, but I would say both are good trucks.

My buddy had a 2000 2.2 auto with mods. I forgot about this lol. It made TONS of noise and went NOWHERE. He couldn't do a brake stand without us lifting up on his fenders. I've only had my 99 2.5 for a week or so, but I can light that mofo up real good and fish tail with the best of em around corners.

I was faced with the same dilemma..Ranger or S10?
I picked the Ranger cause I liked the fact that Ford
didn't need the Government Bail Out. I'm proud to drive
a truck from a company the doesn't need a hand out!
WTG FORD!!

well this is a ford site so im gonna sya ford. no offense to anyone but i think s10s are trash and i dont think very highly of them even thou i prefected my manual drivin skills in one but my first car that i learned to drive a stick in was a 1991 mustang with a 460BB with about 900hp i burned up the clutch and tires so that was my first and last time to drive one but i didnt need to use the gas on starts i just had to let of the clutch witch was fun. but id really have to say TOYOTA is the end all be all of small trucks and not the newer ones the older one the pre 95 ones are the S**T but thats just me
