Hello I may qualify as O.C. but last November I bought my 3rd Ranger. Its a red 2002 2.3L 5 speed with just under 50,000 miles...also own a 1994 4X4 with a 4.0 L and a 5 speed and a 1994 4X2 2.3 with a bad engine (also 5 speed). The shop where I work has a 1994 with over 250,000 on the clock and its used daily. I'm a 68 year old Journeyman Machinist. All the rangers have the standard cab. I live in Frederick Colorado.
