Default Hi from Ontario

Joined because I was thinking of getting a Ranger. Only to find they will be discontinued.
I have strange luck with vehicle shopping.
The RX-7 I had in 1996 blew an engine and I decided I wanted a 5.0 Mustang. They had just switched to the 4.6 and I didn't want to be a new engine tester at the time. I also always wanted a jeep but they had just put out the TJ as well.
I needed a vehicle so I just got another RX-7 (stick with what you know).
Eventually I ended up in a 2002 TJ sport even though I was holding out for a rubicon (which they finally started selling just after I got the sport)
Picked up a 2008 Mustang Bullitt cause I really always wanted a mustang, and be damned if they don't bring back the 5.0!!
So the jeep is on it's way out and I was thinking ranger, but bad timing strikes again!

That is still a possibility. I find once the model changes or ends the aftermarket dries up, parts can become an issue etc.. although there are millions of rangers out there and they haven't changed a whole lot over time so that is a positive.

i like to buy them new and drive 'em into the ground haha. we will see what happens.

don't need a full size trucks and there are not a lot of small options these days.


thanks for all the welcomes!!
