If I wanted a pickup truck I would just go buy a lightning if I wanted a Regular cab and so would half the people that want a truck. there are two of you guys that own rangers and are nice builds but you cant compare it to a clean fox no matter what. I appreciate all clean cars or trucks modded or not I like all brands. You have to respect all vehicles as long as they are tatefully modded. IMO Fox stangs are getting rarer everyday.
Fucking this. I like fast trucks as much as I like fast cars, especially after having wheel time behind a Lightning, but to say a Ranger is cooler then a clean notch? I know opinions are like assholes, but I need some of this Ranger cool aid that has been going around lately in order to fit in.

Really?.. All 90's Ford interiors are boring, especially a 2wd Ranger.. And your truck is heavily modded, a stock Fox is....stock. No shit you'd put away a stock one, maybe.

I'd have to agree with Das a bit here. Why are we humping over a car that was built and designed during the automotive world's worst decade.

Notches are cool because you can make them weigh nothing, jam large engines in them with relative ease and parts are plentiful and cheap.

But they're not rwd and you can't really stuff anything other then a k series in regards to "large engine" in them.


You can put anything from a 460, windsor, Cleveland, sbc or lsx in a fox.

Throw a set of DR's under my truck, crank the preload up on the traction bars and line me up against a MODDED fox. I'm not scared.

His blown 5.0 would have trouble with a good running stock fox, unless he took the bumpers off again.

The fox body was the epitamy of the 80s. Might have been the worse decade for automobiles, but some gems sure still shine. Why dont you throw in G-bodies/GNs in there as well. They are sought after yet, come from the most horrible decade later. And lets not get the SHO guys piping mad since those came out in 89 and are the best road cars ever, ever.

I wouldnt, but I would be scared of that one after seeing the video. If he rolled up out of nowhere and asked me if I wanna run I'd be cool with that. Most of the modded fox's we see on the street wont lay down a 10 sec pass, and I know my truck won't either... but I can't confirm that. Just wanted some quick opinions!

Foxs are a mixed bag of nuts. You will either run into a 15 second one, or a 9 second one. With a few in between.

I hate to come off as a complete dickhole, but what is unique about a basic looking ranger with some wheels from Grandma's 500 and a drop? Looks like every pickup I ever see in Waukegan.

Also, how the hell are the Ranger interiors NOT bland/boring?






Sorry but the interior of a fucking Camry (which has been confirmed as most boring car EVER) is more interesting than that.



They're boring. I'd rather drive a fucking Prius.
