hahaha i LOVE this argument. im in a mini truck club in lexington called Grounded Out. im the ONLY ford! like 12 other s-10s. just YESTERDAY, we all went to a cruise in about 2 hours from home. one of my buddies (s-10) always talks shit about my truck. "oh, pos ford.. at least the circled the problem", "look at that 4x4 mini truck". i just laugh. well yesterday at the cruise, he blew a head gasket and popped a bag! left the truck 2 hours from home, and the ford ended up taking his ass home!

Yeah, the Nissan Titan would be calling my name if I didn't have my nice, free Ranger Hell, I didn't even pay for the gas that brought it from SC to NC!

thats exactly how my club is, they call mine a 4x4 and a pos ford because they all drive yotas or chevys, but theres 3 other guys that just started hanging out that all drive rangers.

I only give a hard time to Dodge owners. From personal experience, the twice bailed out company makes crap and any consumer protection magazine/site that does any long term studies will back that up.

My favorite question is did they get the heated tail gate option. That way they can keep their hands warm when they have to PUSH it. LOL

I grew up in a GM family but due to problems we had with various vehicles over the years, we drifted away. The bail out GM too was the final straw.

Ford is the only one attempting to make any effort at producing a quality vehicle but like with anything else, you have to do your homework and see what other's have experienced.

Ford trucks get relatively good marks compared to their competiton, especially the RWD models. JM2C

I hate this. My best friend has a Monte carlo ss. his daddy bought it for him. His dad loves chevys and its all he will buy. his dad rags on my truck all the time but it's just humor and i do the same to his 1500. I will admit i like his truck and am buying it from him next July. 02 1500 4.8 with 200k miles, he has done nothing too it except regular maintenance and it runs strong. i just drove it to Indiana on Saturday.

But his son has the Monte and thinks its the best car ever. He always wants to race then makes fun of me when i lose every time. I tell him mines a 6k lb truck with a 3.0 yours is a 2500 lb car with a 3.8 see the difference? but yet he still has the nerve to make fun of me. I say fuck it, i try to be nice to chevy guys and i will tel;l anyone they have a nice truck no matter what make it is as long as it looks nice.

recently i make fun of him because it takes his car 2 cranks to start and it's an 01 with 60k miles. and what pisses me off the most is he didn't pay for it. Doesn't pay for anything. not a damn thing if he needs something his dad will give him all the money he needs

so, next time he wants to race, tell him fine -- but you'll pick the course. Then find a nice dirt road with poor drainage shortly after a good rainstorm. ...not only will you win the race, but he'll be begging you to use your Ford truck to drag his Monte Carlo out of the mud!

A little change of subject here, but has anyone else notice that something thats supposed to be "Universal" never works with my ranger. Just tonight I bought a battery hold down that of course did not work with my truck. I had to drill 1 hole in the battery tray and then bend the side by the driver side fender and bend the actual bolt for the kit and force it under the tray... universal my ass... although it did work, after some modification

too fuckin funny....people want to race....trucks I don't know why...but anyways I tell em, sure, I'll go home and get my bike....never get any takers LOL

I've already done the speedy thing had an 04 mach I , that was just stupid fast....done with that....like someone else said, pick the course,take him on a trail and see how well that "car" will do.....

Last time I was in a "race" it was with my Rubicon, and we did a crawl ratio race....pretty much how SLOW can you crawl, ofcourse no brakes allowed.....could pretty much go into 4 lo and get out and walk around the jeep LOL
