Default Should i get a Ranger?

I'm not part of the Ford family yet but I am trying to get out of the Chevy family! I've been a fan of ford ever since I was little. I was looking at the f150 and I was gonna start Savin up for but it's gonna take awhile and the ranger is way quicker to save up for. Imma big guy about 6'1 or so and 265 Ibs. I play high school football(lineman) so imma little worried about me bein comfortable. I will off road and I will pull some stuff. If I get on I want it to be extended can or the biggest cab available. Should I get a ranger or just save for an f150??

I was a lineman in high school and I fit fine in a reg cab ranger, but I'm only 5'8 but 240 lbs. I'd say it all depends on what you are pulling. Rangers can pull a pretty decent load. And I'd say go with the 4.0 over anything just for more power. The 3.0 is alright but I wish it had more power.

Asking a Ranger forum if you should get a Ranger. It doesn't get any better than this.

What are you looking for gas mileage or trail power. If gas mileage then the 2.3L I4 is just as powerful -5hp than the 3.0 v6 it only lacks 20ft/lb in torque. But if your going for trail power then the 4.0 would be the engine of choice.
