I have 550,000 on my '84 ranger 4X4 with 2.8 and 4 speed maual tranny, we rebuilt the engine at about 200,000 and 400,000. my dad bought the truck new in '84 and I got it when he passed away last year, he had a 75 mile one way comute to work. the differentials and transfercase have never been touched and the tranny had the reverse gear and shift linkage bushings replaced once. it still runns great. we changed it over to the old mustang style carb and distributer when we did the first rebuild. I learned to drive in this truck and so did my younger brother so it has been through quite a bit. I still would rather drive it than my newer truck, it still gets close to 20 mpg.
I have a 92 Ranger with a little over 200,000 on the chassis, I installed a new slightly modified engine (2.3) at 180,000 mile's. I have pulled my race car with this set up for 6 year's. I been as far north as Englishtown N.J. and as far south as Gainsville Fla. It has the 4 speed with over drive. I've only had to install 2 set's of brake's ( front only) and 2 clutche's, the last time I went with the ceramic unit used on the 4 cyl. Mustang SVO, used a few year's back. I have been very pleased wit my little truck.
Second Quickest EXP in the world
My 1989 Ranger XLT Supercab just rolled over 330,000 miles on 2.3L 4-cylinder, 5 speed manual. The only thing I have done is change oil ever 6,000 miles (Halvoline 5/30) and replace timing belts every 100,000 miles or so. Mileage used to be about 28, but has dropped to low 20s now and takes a quart of oil about 2,500 miles.
I would have not believed that you could drive a 4-cylinder that far if I had not done so myself.
Freak incident: my Ranger's original differential had a plastic plate instead of steel. Spare tire jumped out of carrier and rubbed a hole in the plastic, and differential oil leaked out, causing differential to fail....replaced it with a used diff and kept on going.
Just sold it to a buddy. Will keep an eye on just how long she goes!
2002 Ranger XLT SC, long bed, power windows/door locks, cruise, 3.0 liter engine with 5 speed auto. About 10.475 miles (approx). usually put in about 10 K per year. transmission failure at 8500 miles which had a cracked servo replaced. has some starting issues (does a lot of cranking sometimes before starting). other than that, runs great. love the color.
1995 Ranger Supercab 4.0L 5sp 4x4 with 125,000 miles. Original battery lasted 110,000 miles, still on the original breaks, other then the motor to the 4 wheel drive being replaced it's been a very reliable truck for me.
1991 Ranger 4x4 4.0L V6 5spd with 173,000 kms on it (I'm in Canada). Bought in August 2001, since then: ball joints replaced, clutch replaced, fuel injectors cleaned, full tune-up (plugs, wires, all filters, etc), K&N air filter, tranny fluid changed, as well as new bumpers (the rear is a chrome step bumper off a 90's mazda p/u). There's a lot of other little maintenance things that have been done (like changing the t-case fluid and rear main seal when the tranny was out). I'm big on preventative maintanence.... spend a little more now to save a lot later.
The best truck I've ever had
