Any advice for a Ranger?

Started by Ben D. Last reply by Ben D Dec 2, 2015. 6 Replies

I got my first truck just over 6 months ago.  It's an 05 Ford Ranger.  Problem is, it is literally the absolute base model.  No power windows or locks, nothing on the front or rear, it does not have…Continue

Let's jump right into the debate. Which is the best men? Chevy, Ford, Dodge or Toyata? My vote is Chevy. Never had a Dodge but every damn Ford pickup I had I was always working on it. My Chevys have…Continue

Hi Pale Horse - yes he was young, in his 40's.

He was friends with me on Facebook when I noticed posts from his relatives that he had passed away in his sleep.  They had some fundraisers for the funeral and for his two children.  It was never followed up on exactly what happened, but I think it was a heart attack from what I remember.

If I may be so bold as to ask, how did he die? He seemed young.

FYI - The originator of this group Dave Santuomo passed away December 2, 2013.  RIP my friend.

2006 Toyota Tundra here.  I had a small '95 Nissan truck, but the engine blew at 222k miles.  Love the Tundra and it's size, bigger is definitely better.

I'm a Chevy and Ford man. Growing up, my dad had a 1989 Ranger 4x4 with a wooden box (because the old one rusted away) and my grandfather had a 1994/95 F350. My first vehicle was a 1994 Chevy S10 Blazer 4x4, and my current vehicle is a 2003 Chevy S10 LS, crewcab, 4x4...She's my baby.

Debate?  No debate necessary.  I'm all for the Fords.  I owned an 81 Chevy C10 Stepside back in 85.  I also owned a Ford F150 8' 4x4.  I'll take the Ford over Chevy any day.  I liked the Chevy but I loved the Ford.

My favorite (true) story about the Ford happend on a rainy day.  I was sitting at a red light and I heard a thump.  I looked around to see what fell but didn't see anything until I looked in my rear-view and saw the very top of a car behind me.  I thought to myself "He seems a bit close".  I put the truck in park and got out to check it out.  Sure enough the guy behind me didn't stop in time and hit the back bumper of the truck (the I-beam bumper).  He'd sheared off the top of his radiator and was belching steam.  I asked if he was ok and told him I'd call the cops to write the accident report.  He said no thanks and took off (no insurance I'd guess).  I looked at the bumper and it only needed touch-up paint.  I never even felt him hit me, only heard it.

Chevy all the way. In 2003 I worked for a car rental place in the country and drove the new Titan, F-150, Silverado, and Ram at one time or another and I loved the Chevy. Loved it so much, I bought my first truck last year: a 2003 Silverado. Compared to the others I like the steering, seats, bed height, and looks of the Chevy. Next truck I buy will be a 4x4, though, because this truck definitely has its limits but the back country is calling my name.

you left our GMC Dave, course it's pretty much the same as Chevy. Mine's an 86 Sierra Classic that my father gave to me shortly before he died.

Advice on buying a leather bag

I'm looking to buy a used leather briefcase and/or messenger bag for college. Probably won't buy until later in the summer, but I'm trying to get some research in. Does anyone have any vintage or modern brands to recommend? Right now I'm looking at something along these lines. Hoping to keep it under $50.See More
