I figured I would ask everyone why they chose to buy their Rangers. I will start it off! When I was a kid, i delivered autoparts, and everyday I drove by a local Ford dealership. There was a yellow Splash there, and I stopped just about everyday to look at it. I was a kid, no credit, not alot of money and wanted a truck like that someday. Since then I set my goal to get a truck like the Splash, but ran into things that took priority over that. I got married at age 20, my daughter was born when I was 23, my son when I was 26 so the truck thing went on the back burner so I can take care of my family. At age 30, I got divorced, another setback, so I started my own Mobile Auto Detailing business and maintained my full time job to make up for losses and wanted to make sure my kids were going to be taken care of still. The business did very well for 4 years, actually got bigger than I expected and with 4 employees plus myself, I still couldnt keep up so I was burned out and shut it down. The last year my business was up and running I started looking for the Ranger I always wanted. I looked all around, and I mean everywhere from locally to ebay! Then last March, I finally found the Ranger, I actually found it on ebay in Long Island NY. It wasn't a splash but a newer stepside! It was perfect from the stepside to even the color! I had some money set to the side for it, I haggled with the seller and got the price dropped 1,000.00. So after 17 years of waiting and a few minor setbacks, I got the truck I always wanted and then some because it even came with a superlift!
