yeah, i own a Ranger, but its cause it was a really cheap find....and ive had countless problems with it...motor is about shot at 170k (its a 3.0L)

my old GMC Jimmy (4.3) is pushing 200k and just normal oil change and stuff, but no real problem...

i have noticed that the ford rust slower than GM, but Every vehicle is different from the other....(and the bed of my ranger is a fiberglass stepside and im pretty sure it wont rust...)

I also know a guy with a huge cow hood thats got a 5.9L cummins, hes got it modified to make it fit. I thought it was a 4 banger cummins, its not. Its one right out of a Dodge. Didn't think it would fit. Hes got a stack sticking out of the bed. I seen it shoot black smoke out one day, and I flagged him down and begged him to explain what motor he had. I didn't think a cummins would fit, but I seen a what looked like to me a 5.9L some where between a 2001-2002 model in there idling. Turbo and all.

Foul thing is, its a 2WD ranger, with some super beefed up suspension on the front. Of course he could be lieing, but I've heard and seen cummins before, and I know what a 5.9L looks like, and if that wasn't a 5.9L i6 then he did a great job at making it look like one.

I dont think he was saying it was impossible. Think he was just saying that he doesnt believe a dealership would swap V8's into a bunch of rangers to sell them...

I want pictures of the diesel Ranger, I don't think that would fit at all with out sticking it into the cab. I could believe the 4bt cummins not the 6bt.

As for which truck is better, I have both. Both are great trucks. It's all about how you feel in it. I've had great luck with both trucks, they are both reliable, and I haven't managed to kill mine yet lol

If you came to FRF to ask that question you either 1. Want to try to start an argument, or 2. Want someone here to talk you into buying a ranger which is probably what you already want to do anyway, you just want to hear it from someone else. Both the ranger and the s-10 are nice trucks, but look at both of them 15 years down the road and then tell me which is the better truck. The s-10 might have a nicer interior starting out, but they rag out really bad and look awful down the road. I have a 94 ranger (16 years old), and the interior looks almost the same as it did when it came out new. It may be simpler, but just like a jeep wrangler, when it comes to lasting, simpler is better. The more bells and whistles you have starting out, the more crap you gotta fix down the road. Stick with the solid reliable ford ranger, cheaper and easier to work on. Just my .02 ymmv
