That you can get your Ranger all pretty and clean and the windows all washed and shiny and take it out for a cruise to show it off and roll down your window and when you get home roll it up and its all wet and streaking.Damn!

I dislike the dent in my passenger front fender. I wish it would just go away without my wallet getting lighter. Dents, arg.

1. That Ford couldn't figure out how to get more horses or mpg out of a 3.0 v6. (i.e. Audi A6: Base Engine: 3.0L V6 310HP Fuel MPG: 18 city / 27 hwy)

That the bottom half of the bumper is PLASTIC and does not perform as a bumper in event of a collision.

That it is a v6 that has little power. Also that it has 373's and an open rear end. I would really like to get something else but I don't know if I will with school starting back up here soon. I don't think I would get another truck unless it was a diesel, or at least a newer f150 with decent power (5.4 3v and newer). I would like to get another fun car, either a mustang of some kind, srt4, wrx, mk3 Supra, idk something more fun than a ranger lol! Mainly because I'm not into the labor intensive cleaning after going off road.

Some punk kid, at a high school where I was teaching, keyed the rear driver side quarter panel....down to the metal. The key came off the truck about halfway down, just over the rear tire flare. They then went back to over lap where it stopped, dug the key in again, and kept going to finish the job up to the gas flap.

I am reminded of a scene from "Pulp Fiction".

Vincent: Tell me about it. I had it in storage for three years, it was out for five days and some d***less piece of s**t f***ed with it.
Lance: They should be f***ing killed. No trial, no jury, straight to execution.
Vincent: Boy, I wish I could've caught him doing it. I'd have given anything to catch that a**hole doing it. It'd been worth him doing it just so I could've caught him doing it.
Lance: What a f***er!
Vincent: What's more chickens**t than f***ing with a man's automobile? I mean, don't f**k with another man's vehicle.
Lance: You don't do it.
Vincent: It's just against the rules.

The 5.4 3v is a shit engine, that's why Ford stopped making it and brought back the 5.0.
