History of the ford ranger

I found this vid on another site and thought I put a link up. Its a video history of the ford ranger.

trucks really haven't changed much in the 15 years.

Cool, I really like the body style of the one shown at the 1:13 point. Anyone have an idea what year that was?

They look like XLTs the red is an 01 steppie the blacks an 02 4x4.

In my opinion the best looking rangers are the 01-03 XLTs or EDGEs.

Wow, hard to believe there's been so few changes over the years (unlike the F150) but then again why mess with success?

Buddy of mine had a 1988 ranger Diesel.

I didn't even know those things existed in Canada.




There are no stupid questions, but there are a LOT of inquisitive idiots.

I had a Ranger Diesel for a short time while I was younger. I didn't know how to fix a diesel at the time so I ended up selling it to a guy who had a couple of them. It was a regular cab long bed.
