Default Hello from Detroit - 1990 Sky Ranger question

Hi all,

I joined the forum simply to find out if my friend's 1990 Ford Sky Ranger is a rare bird. I can't seem to find any info on it. It has 50k miles and is in great condition. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Yes, it is a Sky Ranger and it is a convertible Ford Ranger truck with "Sky Ranger" written on the side.

Never heard of a "Sky Ranger". Heard of a "Sky Pilot" though.


He blesses the boys as they stand in line
The smell of gun grease and the bayonets they shine
He's there to help them all that he can
To make them feel wanted he's a good holy man

Sky pilot.....sky pilot
How high can you fly
You'll never, never, never reach the sky
He smiles at the young soldiers

Tells them its all right
He knows of their fear in the forthcoming fight
Soon there'll be blood and many will die
Mothers and fathers back home they will cry

Sky pilot.....sky pilot
How high can you fly
You'll never, never, never reach the sky
He mumbles a prayer and it ends with a smile

The order is given
They move down the line
But he's still behind and he'll meditate
But it won't stop the bleeding or ease the hate

As the young men move out into the battle zone
He feels good, with God you're never alone
He feels tired and he lays on his bed
Hopes the men will find courage in the words that he said

Sky pilot... sky Pilot
How high can you fly
You'll never, never, never reach the sky
You're soldiers of God you must understand

The fate of your country is in your young hands
May God give you strength
Do your job real well
If it all was worth it

Only time it will tell
In the morning they return
With tears in their eyes
The stench of death drifts up to the skies

A soldier so ill looks at the sky pilot
Remembers the words
"Thou shalt not kill"
Sky pilot.....sky pilot

How high can you fly
You never, never, never reach the sky

(For all those who never made it home)

welcome to FRF, Karl.
sorry, ford never produced a factory convertible ranger.
However, this ranger may have been a product of a specialty design company.

I will try to take a few pics. It does appear to be a production model based on the "Sky Ranger" logo on the side of the bed. The convertable top looks factory and not custom at all. I was able to find one example pic in Google search but without info. In the meantime I will try to find that pic and at least post it here until I can take my own.

I don't like it. Maybe with a t-top or something, but that just don't look right.
