There's nothing like the sound of a pushrod V8 singing at the top of her lung's.

Yeah - a little turbo-diesel, quad-cab, AND a manual trans...I might have to figure out how to grab one. Though my old truck needed to be replaced so I bought a 2015 F-150 in June of '16 though so it might be a push. I miss a lot of stuff about the old rig though & IMO Ford cheaped out on a lot of crap on the '15 & up trucks.

I've always had a soft spot for Rangers. My favorite was a '91 std. cab 4x4 with 5-spd...best little truck I've had.

I had a really sweet 86 STX Supercab cab 4WD that was silver with blue stripes. Then a 94 Supercab 4WD. The 94 is when I parted ways with newer Fords. I had a tranny fail right after vacation one year. I bought a Ford reman and less than a year later it starting giving me trouble. I bought a 2000 Tundra 4WD to replace it with because I was so mad. It is still my daily driver.

COME 8th day of march,I have owned my 91 4.0 v6 ext cab ranger 27 yrs,,I special ordered it,,pretty much all original,,but here awhile back the clutch mc went out,so until I replace it,it's parked,,but every now and then I start it and drive around the pasture to keep it from just sitting,,,it has a 8.8 3.55 traction lok ,with a 5spd ,tilt CC ,I added a receiver hitch with electric brks .have hauled my comet many many times,hauled tractors,,it for a fact has been a very good little truck..in 93 ,I ordered a new ranger equip just like the 91,,it came in the very same day my son returned from LA,CALF with the 91,he drove it out there for 3 mo's of schooling for his job,,I had already made the trade on the 93,so the next day after work,I went to the ford place and wrote check, and took delivery of the new ranger,,48 hrs later I took the 93 back and got my 91 and my money....I just did not like the 93 splash,,,THE ford place did not give me any trouble,,they said I was a valued customer and they wanted to keep me happy,,,that's the reason I have always dealt with the same dealership for so many yrs....in fact my 94 f150 with barely 77,ooo miles on it came from there....thanks and good luck......POP
