My 02 Ranger XLT Extended cab was pretty quiet inside. My 08 of the same spec except with a 4.0 engine is very noisy around the windows and door frames. I've had it bacik to the dealer twice and they just dismiss it as normal or say the bug shield in the front is at fault. (duh!! Gosh guys, ya really think so?) I think Ford must have dropped their QC on these guys as they think about fazing them out.
