Now's the time!
I just traded in my 2001 Ranger XLT RC, 4X2, 2.3L for a brand new 2003 Ranger XLT SC, 4X2, 3.0L. I was going to wait for the 04 to come out (new design and all) but the rebates and stuff right now are crazy! I leased the 01 and was not scheduled to go back until November 2004. Well, I'm buying the 03 for about $15 a month less!
