I hate how my 215k mile 2000 ranger 4.0:
Leaks coolant somewhere
Passenger headlight only works when brights are on
Brights suck
Has a broken passenger side brake light
Drivers side turn signal marker is broken
Has 2 tiny ass boards for backseats
Is 2wd
Auto
Needs tuned up
Has a 4.0 that could use freshening up. Or the +1 liter mod.

My 87...
Rust.
Drivers floorboard also provides ac
Has no engine or transmission
Is absorbing what little money I have
No powersteering
Shitty paint
Thick ass grease on firewall that is resistant to our huge ass pressure washer.
Too much to continue about. Don't even get me started with the engine harness I took out of it.

My front end clunk/thump. It's not just today though, it started about a week or two after I bought it...

Rabble.

Oh and the 60/40 seat, hard as a damn rock. I miss my B4000's buckets and center console, only wish the lumbar control worked, never did get a chance to use that and my lower back would have appreciated it (old work injury).

Okay, one more... the cup holder depth and placement on either side of the stick must have been someones idea of a joke. I use the passenger side holder because it's easier for me to get to when driving.
