Mine was a city vehicle once, and whatever alarm system the city installed back in the 90s seemed like a good one, but whatever hack removed that alarm system made the DRLs not work, along with the anti theft light on the dash and just left the siren under the hood with a chopped wiring harness. Thats what I hate because I got a warning for not having DRLs today -.-

The only thing I hate about mine is the Continental tires that came OE with it. 10-15mph crawl in traffic and the whole truck bounces or "washbags".. high speed and I get shake from all over.

I keep them rotated and balanced on schedule. Feels like they are out of round.

I have 29K miles, bought the truck new in February 2012, have not taken it off road aside from the occasional gravel driveway.

The engines dirty, she has a misfire, she needs a new thermostat (hopefully that's what it is), she has torsion bars, she has a v6, she's an extended cab but the back doors don't open... that's about it.

The power door locks always seem to have a mind of their own, when it comes to using the door switches. However using the remote, they work fine.

My ranger isn't turbo'd yet. Because I can't freaking finish my turbo engine if it is in another state

The plastic door handle area, and crappy cloth material below the window...

The older rangers with the vinyl window armrest are MUCH better, and the interior door handle+area around it feels better built in the previous ones as well.

The speakers in the front doors like to rattle a bit with certain bass, Ford made shitty door interiors on 06+
