92 Ranger still going strong

I joined this forum shortly after buying the 92 extended cab truck w/ the 4.0L V6 from family friends, 3 years later and 30K miles, it's been largely a reliable vehicle, it's biggest issue has been both the slave and the master cylinder for the clutch had to be replaced, the master in Dec of 06, the slave back in January. The clutch assembly was replaced before I bought the truck.

A Carfax report verified the mileage for it was not reported on the title for family friends, nor mine and since it only has a 5 digit odometer it was hard to tell for sure, but was apparently listed when it was sold to the owner who sold them the truck in 2005. The last mileage listed before I got it was in 2002 when it was at 126K miles when it passed the emissions test. Today the truck more than likely has 218K miles on it due to it had 189K when I bought it.

I did have the exhaust replaced primarily from the muffler back and last Christmas had to put new tires on it. Outside of that, it's been trouble free, starts just fine and all that, gets great mileage, stable on the highway even at fast speeds, it did have a bad spark plug wire that fouled a plug and a vacuum leak, but both never prevented the truck from not running so I can't complain there.

This is the 2x4 truck and had to drive it in the snow back in Dec, more than 2 inches and it doesn't do so well but it does better than one would hope for a 2WD truck. Overall, I can't complain one bit.

However, as good as it's been, it's getting time to move on for living in the city, parking on the street it's not the most city friendly vehicle and since it's a manual, not the best for driving on hilly streets and I've driven a stick for 16 years in and around Seattle and want to move to something smaller and with an automatic but for a guy who never thought he'd ever own a truck, glad I had this one for it's gotten me through thick and thin with little problems.
