if you forfeit your posture it's fine, can't sit straight up in it. if i have the left blinker on and take my foot off the clutch i turn the blinker off lol.
i am however long waisted (wear 34 in length for jeans) if you have long legs and a short waist you should try it.
InlinePaul: i was actually talking about the rusted rim lol. but that is a nice truck.
Blackwell - Really good looking Ranger! I always thought that trim level looked nice, although I hated the awful Edge badge on the side. It's nice yours doesn't have that. Did you take it off yourself or did it come that way? I like the grill on it too. How many miles on it? How much did you pay for it? I was originally looking to get a Ranger until I found a great deal on a low miles 2001 S-10. I have the 2.2 4cyl with the 5 speed manual. I love it.
Why is every compact pickup on here a 2001? Something special about the year?
Oh, and I'll take a lot of dust in the cab any day over rust.
my uncle had it, never used it much. i believe he took the edge badge off. got it for high school graduation.
it has 134,816 miles on it.
so what do liters mean? is that how much gas is used in the engine?
i love my grill too, i don't see it that often. wish they had more with the honeycomb look to it.
yeah, i'd definitely have dust than rust too. the only reason i noticed it is because of the times that i've opened it and dust flew out and the change in tint on my rearview mirror lol. things don't rust very much out here, maybe the lack of moisture and salt? idk, it's nice.

I don't care for either, but with the dust you better be sure your air filter is well seated in the housing and all hoses tight. Poor air filtration will dirty your motor oil. I had a disconnected PCV hose on my F150 one summer while travelling though a construction zone 10 miles twice a day all summer. That oil change was sent in for analysis. Lead came back at 476 ppm (normal is low double digits).
As for all compact pickups on this site being 2001, maybe that was the last year for hand crank windows?
wow, i know where the air filter is and checked it before, it's a box type. do i just need to make sure it's snug?
(sorry this is a long post
my pickup is manual everything! lights, seats, windows, transmission, (have power steering thankfully)
