    It does look pretty good. I don't like the ranger badge on the side but nothing else really to gripe about.

    I saw one of these driving on I-10 in eastern Arizona in early December. I couldn't believe how large it was

    Ford has a testing facility in AZ, I bet it was here for that, but I think it's up near Phoenix. Were you near Tucson or farther East? Some gnarly trails out near the Chiricahua Mountains East of Willcox.

    I was out by Benson coming in westbound from NM and so was he. You could read the RANGER stamped in the tailgate from a half mile behind. As I got closer it got bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and I swore it was about the same size as a 90's F150

    I want a true bare bones minitruck like you could get in the 90s. My first truck was a 1993 Nissan regular cab, 4 cyl/5 speed. It was perfect, it got greag gas mileage, it was useable as an actual truck for light duty work, and it was incredibly inexpensive. I wish the manufacturers would offer that today.

    I still don't understand why it took so long to bring that back to the US. We had one on base in Iraq last year. Different front end but the rest was pretty much the same.

    They're just too damn expensive, compared to what you get for a full size, and the same $.

    Also, that's some pretty uninterested drivetrain.
