Re: if you didn't have your Ranger....
I bought my ranger in September of last year. If they weren't around, I probably would still be driving my 99 Frontier until I had enough money to buy 03 or older F-250 with the 7.3 Turbo Diesel, ext. cab, regular bed in the Forrest green if I could find one. I'd jack it up and throw some 35's on it.
