    Thanks Steve. We did get the extended warranty mucky, muck with it and we are quite happy with this silly truck. We just got back from a 400 mile trip and got nearly 30mpg. Not towing anything as you might guess.

    Fords ESP warranty is fairly well regarded. You can usually save quite a bit of money buying it yourself from Flood or Ziegler Ford.

    If anyone needs a "mid sized truck" we whole heatedly will suggest the new ranger. We'll call it that because its the pretty close to the same size of the 1987, 150 we sold a few years ago which had no power and got terrible fuel mileage. We are still amazed just how good it can tow our camper and go 85 on a hilly interstate.. No shortage of ponies and get great mileage. (not at 85 towing the camper [LOL])

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed how not “mid” they are lol it’s basically the same size/towing capacity as my ‘95 F150

    Well, I had a fawn come out of the ditch and "clunk" into the drivers door. Was pretty loud and he was big, so i assumed it dented the door. Lots of hair but no dent! [​IMG] We are getting nearly 30 MPG on the road while not towing. [:D][:D][:D] Ya I know i said that before but it still amazes me.

    I'd like to update this 2019 ranger review and say just how much we love this darn truck. We like it so much, we will look at the bronco when our Hondu Element needs to be replaced. [:O] rangersnow80.jpg

    Still loving this silly truck. Got over 20K on it now and found its snow like tires it came with are showing serous wear. So we'll buy another set of rims this fall and get snows on them. Cheap steel ones if your care. That way we'll have summer and winter tires and wheels to run. Ya, most people here do this and it works great.
