Last truck I had was before my 1998 ram was a 2000 Ford explorer XLS. I traded it in on the dodge and it had 160K miles on the original drivetrain, ball joints, battery, plugs and wires. I will not say anything bad about that truck ever, but it is nice to be driving something I give a crap about again!
Before I bought my house I had a 2004 Ranger XLT FX4 Level II that I bought brand new with a 5spd with a kickass chrome shifter. I loved that truck but the bank made me get rid of it to get my mortgage. Now I am so used to not having a car payment I sought out a low mileage ten year old truck and paid cash.
