Hopman i thought it was you that said that, but about the time i started typing that my mind wandered off, and you speak the truth my friend about "once you drive a Ranger everything else does'nt fit." I'm on my third Ranger and refuse to get rid of it come hell or high water.

Maybe Jim should use that as a tagline for the site.

My "Flying Eggplant" is the first Ranger I've owned. I bought it because I needed a vehicle in good shape, and this popped up. The more I drive it, the more it seems to fit and be an extension of my personality and the values I strive for.

It's reliable, durable, always there to help out a friend, and quirky. Just like me.

The day this truck dies will be a sad one. But rest assured, I WILL be looking for another Ranger!

Hah, I'm on my first and I'm taking the same attitude.

I started with the Ranger, then I got a 78 Nova, then I got a 90 F-250.

Then I went back to the Ranger.

And as to the clutch that's a good question- I don't how to put in terms of spongy or soft. My last car was a small Suzuki (2007) and with that car the clutch would catch when released about 50% this truck has a way different feel- the clutch would catch at about 80% released. When I first caught in it I put it reverse and let out the clutch and I wasn't moving didn't realize I had to let it so much more then my suzuki.
Why do you say that it was 40%?

This guy is advertising 71,000.

Here is how he explained it on the phone after I called him back-


"Ahhh yeah man, we had the engine rebuilt..wait uh do you know anything about cars...ok well we had the engine rebuilt and I think the guy that did it rolled back the odometer, but we never asked him to." I asked if he had receipts documenting the rebuild and he said "well no it's my girlfriends car and she is bad about keeping that stuff man" so I said can you call the shop and get a new receipt to prove it, and he said "well here is the thing, after he worked on my girlfriends car, I let him work on my truck and he messed it all up, so when I called him about messing up my truck he got all offended and stopped returning my calls".

On to the next test drive.
Try the few links I posted up from ft myers craigslist.
