Default 2nd Ranger XLT, 21 years apart

This is my 2nd Ranger, a 2010 SuperCab XLT, with a 2.3 5 speed, love that mileage. The first one, which the x drove, was a 1989 2.9 V6 with a 5 speed, which had a long life until the daughter learned to drive in it. Clutch lasted 240,000, and it finally left the family at 260,000, amazing. 22 mpg, replaced fenders, quarter panels, brakes, an alternator, and a starter. Painted it black with a purplelene flame job, beautiful. I was driving a 2008 F350, loaded, and got tired of the 13 to 14 mpg, driving it like a commuter back and forth to work. The rebates lured me in and the new Ranger is getting a few treats. Hellwig sway bars, a nice Nav radio with a custom subwoofer, and some KYB shocks, the stock shock valving is a little too loose for my taste. And I really like the 26 mpg, woo hoo! Did someboby mention a turbo available, just asking?
