yah accidents will rune ur plans pritty quick.
i had a 98 nissan sentra ser. wanted to work on it and supe it up, cuz it was a 4cyl (easy to work on) and driving out in the country long story short i crashed.
but this is my first ford ive had, my most recent truck was my 86 Gmc 6.2L, that truck was a beast. had almost 300,000 miles on it. ran great until someone drained my oil.
but otherwise i like ford alot now.

Those 6.2 diesels were great someone drained your oil wow some people do stupid stuff. Fords are great in my books you sit in a Chev, Dodge, and any import they just feel cheap on the inside I find nothing beats a Ford

Fords just seem better and feel better. People see the blue oval and think its crap or you have to push it. I take those jokes in stride I like my Ranger shame the fuel economy sucks but its a great truck. I like the look of the older Rangers more they were simple but nice to look at. Chevs are alright but they suck as a work truck where I am from they have a low ground clearance compared to a F350 or a Ram 3500. If I had to buy a Chev it would be the old 1980 Scottsdale. For an older Ford I want a 1953 F100 done to factory specs.

yah, the old chevys are nice. i always went mudding in mine, and the 4wd was broken and i drove a mile threw deep mud down and up a hill ended up being a dead end. couldnt believe i got threw it. but id say the 80s scottdales were pritty nice.
from what ive heard though is the 90s f150 are pritty bad, my bros dad has a 93 f150 and he sais it breaks down every 2000 miles. but otherwise the ranger and 250 an 350s are great. but im thinkin people are just jelous ford came first =]

all the chevy's in CO are low to the ground too and thats stock for some reason! in my ranger i can see the roof its like you might as well by a baja or an old el camino. my friend has a 96 s10 and gives me crap for my ranger and theres no way his is better at all we put it to the test on the highway and he messed up his transmission so he claims but i think that its all talk. ford is better built quality and durable truck as long as you give it good care.i have had my ranger for six months and wanted one since i was 14 and i love it to death.
