My second Ranger by Bill on 04/26/2003. Trim: 1998 Ford Ranger XLT SuperCab 4WD, Owned 5 years.
Pros: I like it's looks. Comfortable for long drives. Powerful headlights. Never had any major problems except for what Jiffy Lube did to my fuel line.
Cons: Stay away from Jiffy Lube. They destroyed my fuel line while replacing my fuel filter. I drove for 4 months, leaking fuel, before I noticed what they did.
Overall review: Overall a good truck. My second Ranger. Drove this one cross country twice and roundtrip from Seattle to San Diego four times. Just do basic maintenance and it'll treat you good.

My Big Blue Truck by Heath from Lawton, OK on 05/14/2003. Trim: 1998 Ford Ranger XLT SuperCab 4WD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Excellent ground clearance, plenty of room in the back for 1 adult and 1 child to sit comfortably.
Cons: Shift knob came off and the shift stick is large compared to other vehicles which meant finding a suitable replacement for the shift knob was a real pain.
Overall review: I would definately reccommend anyone looking for a dependable truck to have some fun with to buy a Ford Ranger 4X4. My insurance premium lowered going from my Neon to the truck. (same amount of coverage)
