Gearing has a lot to do with that....

I took my truck, towing a trailer with 2 atvs, and the bed full of stuff, all the way over to Arkansaw Wisconsin deep in hill valley country to an MX park and had no issues climbing large steep hills....
Even my near by town of Glenwood Mn, that town is nested deep inside a hill valley amd u have to climb big hills to get in and out of that town....i have no issues.....

Yeah..not just the dealers...but private sellers too.

Guy down the road from me has a 2000 gold ext cab 4x4 ( I dont know what motor it has) but he wants $7500.
I paid $6995 for mine at a dealer back in 2005. A six year old truck for almost 7grand..and now he wants $7500 for a truck thats 13yrs old? Wtf..?

it would be more reasonable if it had half of the mileage....174k miles is getting towards the end of its life......

Glenn, you should stop being so mad at people who "Bash" the 3.0
It's not worth the trouble.
I've owned a 2.0 (now thats one slow truck!) it takes at least 20+ seconds to get to 55 (back in 1988) and thats on a dry level surface!
oh, yeah, when in overdrive, the HP actually drops to 63, to "save" on fuel consumption.

Its not about bashing the 3.0...its about bashing a new member with a 3.0.
We need to WELCOME new members..not bash them just because they have a 3.0...
They bash this new guy that has 2 posts...telling him his engine is garbage and a pile of shit...and he has yet to make another post.
This forum seems to be becoming FordRanger4.0Forum.com and not FordRangerForum.com

With these guys bashing people right on their first posts....these new members arent going to stay around...or ever become a "Contributing Member" and paying the subscription fee..thats bad business and less $$ for Tom..

I missed the new member being bashed for having a 3.0. That is wrong.
maybe a little joking around is okay, but not Bashing.
