Default Re: The "what do you hate about your Ranger today" thread

That my 4x4 stopped working this week and its a bitch to get going on my street (i've actually gotten stranded sideways for like 5 minutes). That theres salt/snow/slush all over and it gets dirty first time I drive after a wash. That my wheels are ug and i'm too poor to afford nice ones. That my doors have "door dings" on em and they are pretty visible... stupid school parking lots and parties.
edit: oh yeah.. and no power locks/windows .... hate leaning over to unlock passenger door and to roll down the window when people want to talk at red lights.

its black and shows all the dirt. i love the black though so oh well. scratch on the door. the interior has to much plastic. my power window on the driver side sucks and hasnt worked since i got it. ive taken it to to dealers for warranty and they both couldnt fix it. so i gave up. tires are to small and cost way to much. and filling up once a week is a bitch on a minimum wage job. oh and its not an fx4.

Washing it. When I wash it, it looks awesome but it only lasts a few days and then it looks really dirty. Cleaning the wheels are another thing.

The clip that holds the clutch pedal to the clutch master cylinder piston (not sure about the technical name) broke and i was stranded for 20 mins looking for zip-tys in my truck, and it is really dirty, the gas tank is on E, it looks weird with small tires with the lift, and it has stupid looking wheels.

Absolutely nothing. 200k miles and all I've had to replace is the ball joints, the alternator, shocks, tires, bushings, SB links, and battery.

Cheap parts, looks great, runs great, easy to work on.

Built Ford tough.

I love it.

Now imagine filling up once a week when all you get is $20 a day and you are working from 8-5 !!!
thats what i do.... but i am just a co-op student (last year high school) and the boss is just giving me $20 a day for gas... but it is still a lot of hours to not really have any extra $$$ at the end of the week
