Mixed feelings at the moment...

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Redneck_ranger, Feb 27, 2012.

  1. So as today rolls on, I'm thinking more and more about selling my truck and getting a new Ranger (93-97 preferably) and starting entirely over with it. I was gonna make a thread up about all the problems that this truck has given me since I bought it eight months ago, and keep thinking...Why do I keep dumping money into a thing that is gonna keep breaking and wearing out? I would rather start over with a new truck, sell mine, and then have some cash to put into the new truck. Anyone wanna tell me how you feel about that?

    You dont want anything older than a 1990. That way you dont have to deal with the bull**** of swapping out the Dan28 front and ford 7.5 rear to a different axle. Oh and look for a 4.0...those 2.8/2.9s are junk IMO

    The latches on the bottom are an extreme pain because after a while they don't work anymore... So yeah. Not all that they're lived up to be. And Clinton, I don't care if it's deja vu for you. I've dumped over 6 grand into this truck in 8 months and I ain't getting anywhere... Now my tranny's going slowly and engine's on it's way out too.

    I'm looking into a clean one. Never beaten, never taken off road. Then I'm gonna do everything to it before it goes off road so I don't have any headaches.

    If I got any truck, it would most likely be an extended cab that was never off road, although I do really like your truck. I have to talk it over with my parents first and see what they say and maybe this summer I'll finally get rid of it

    I should have bought my buddy's 97. Lifted 9" on 35s. He only wanted $1200 for it, but it needed a engine put in and I needed a truck that I could drive home.

    9" is too much. 5.5-6 is perfect and leave it at that. With that much lift, it's too much to go wrong.
