My first NEW car was a 99 Mazda B3000 4x4. I loved this truck. My son is soon 16 and needed a first time vehicle. I was thrilled when he decided he loved the Ranger. I just purchased an 01 Ranger 4x4 4.0 XLT. It has a body lift, some larger tires and stepside bed. It is in pretty good condition, but he will have to do some work to it in order to keep things going well.
