Hello from Detroit

Happy to be aboard. Just bought a 2007 Ranger XL 4cyl 5spd without A/C...rubber, not carpet etc....thought it was a good base choice...heading to SC to pick it up this weekend. Excited to see how far I can take it for MPG. Hope to have one of the most efficient trucks available....

Jason

Looking for 4cyl supercab Rangers with 5spds used is a lot more selective than I anticipated. They nearly all have a V6 or Auto transmission, or regular cab....

I know how it is when you start looking for something specific, when I was trying to find my honda hx i relized that arent many for sale in my area. sc has a relativly small marketplace compared to detroit. I have driven many a mile to get what I wanted. I thought maybe the trip was family related for you. hey also interested in your screen name whats that all about?
