    What are your thoughts on this Ranger?

    I like the color and it looks in good shape. Have them put it on a lift so you can see the underside

    WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOUR RANGER TODAY?

    Used it to get a battery for the stepson's Silverado. 😄

    Also. I'd like a green or blue color if I was going to get a different one.

    My ranger has open diffs and I almost got it stuck in a sandy parking area. I like to do my off roading at low speed. 15 to 20 mph on the trails. The places I would take it include the northern Georgia mountains (Beasley, Bald Head, Cherokke National Forest) as well as Michigan in winter...

    That F-150 doesn't have an air locker, but it does have a rear locker

    Personal preference. I see way too many white cars here.

    I've looked around here for a 4WD Ranger but can't find a rust free one in the Sport model, with the same mileage, and not in freaking white.

    Well I actually prefer Dodge and Chevy 1500s over the F-150. DeSoto Ford in Arcadia just has a nice blue XL for 0% at 72 months.

    So take a 12K loan on a truck with 100,000 dependable miles or 33K on a new vehicle

    I'd have to get a loan for the 12K

    I was trying to keep it vague to keep the audible sighs from happening. 😁😇😜 Should I convert my Ranger to 4wd, match the rear diff to the front and add a rear air locker to it (12K estimate price) Or Just buy a new F-150 in the lot that has 4WD and a locker
