I hate that it handles like a first time sexual encounter and understeers as far as the eye can see, and the squeaky plastic by the rear cup holders.. gonna double side tape the crap out of you!!

Well I'm new here but this isn't my first ranger. I bought a 98 4x4 with 161,000 miles a 3 inch body lift and turned up t-bars. And for starters I hate that the idiots before me never got tires balanced or an alignment so the BFg 33" at's are wearing on the inside and I see some some steering/suspension in my near future. The paint on the passenger door is chipping and I can clearly tell that door used to be blue. I'm not sure if it's actually fx4 because I know they replaced the bed and some other body parts after they bought it, and this morning on my way home from work I found out the 4 wheel drive doesn't work so no mud for me 😥. The radio has got to be the cheapest made after market radio on the face of the planet and the drivers seat is wore out. But so far it seems like it gets waaayyy better fuel efficiency than my 02 ram 1500 with the 5.9, and the PO spent $300 on custom fit seat covers that he left in the truck

Needs rear brakes, shocks, ebrake cables, coolant flush, and a new tranny cooler. Other than that I love it.
