and due to the title that my friend gave it there are some very interesting arguments left in the comments

I had a '98 Reg Cab 3.0 that I pretty much beat the nuts off of.

I used it a lot on the north side of Ft Drum,NY to get to some of my hunting spots. There were roads up there that would literaly break HUMMERS.

I had that thing going over beaver dams, log jams, water up to the head lights...........

It had the balls of a neutered girl, but it was awesome off-road.

Rangers are pretty stout, capable little trucks. The 4.0 liter v6 has plenty of balls for what it is. My wife wants to get rid of hers, but I want to keep it. They make awesome desert trucks.

with that ifs the ride on dirt roads is pretty smooth compared to the straight axles of dodges.
