The safety rating is horrible and I'm nervous when my wife drives it, but I won't tell her because she'll be scared.

"safety rating" haha what a joke.
I don't care about any safety ratings.
My other ride is a motorcycle, I also ride and race atvs, and lets just say, they have way less safety rating than my ranger.
The main safety feature is always the operator.

I know a lady that rolled her 99 ranger 3 times, the cab was mostly smashed up, yet she came out with only a few cuts and bruises.
That's ranger strong.

Safety rating. Had a buddy of mine who was driving a 95 extended cab on the s-curve in grand rapids mi. He lost control on the snowy road and was t-boned by a semi. He got hurt, but he says that ranger saved his life. If he was driving his escort he said he probably would be here today

----------

Oops that's wouldn't be here today. Shit

Damn i have the opposite complaint
I want coils so it would be cheaper to lift

Its leaking something
I thought it was gear oil from the front diff but it looks like its coming from the oil pan gasket or something above
And the clutch slave is leaking too but i just keep fluid with me

I don't hate my ranger, I just disagree with how the bearing races are part of the rotors and how I had to replace both rotors and bearing, inner and outer tie rods and lower ball joints. Uni-balls on the uppers so no probs there. That's what happens I guess when any chance you get to smash down a dirt road and jump your truck.

The #1 thing I absolutely hate about my ranger, is the extremely rough ride. Every ranger I have ridden in isn't this rough! Don't know whats causing it to be so rough. My brother says it could be the tires ( ALL 4 are "Load Rating E"). Friend at work says its the shocks. Don't know where to start! Going over some small speed bumps at 5mph feels like I'm driving over a damn cliff!!

I hate that the odometer & trip meter are the same screen & I have to toggle back and forth. Old Windstar & wife's Taurus had separate ones. And the LCD black numbers against a gray background are often hard to read---same for the radio.

I hate that I picked a 2wd.
I hate my front bumper, it's just super plain looking.
And I hate not having power locks or windows.

All the things I hate are my fault for picking the cheapest Ranger I could find, but still, they're things to hate. Lol

Mine is crazy rough too. Its pretty rusty underneath though so i wouldnt be surprised if it was bad shocks or something. they still function well but they look like hell from rust. the bottom of the top piece (which moves up and down) and rusted and breaking off.
But they are still fully functional, and my ranger is a crazy rough ride. roughest vehicle ive ever had.
