Playskool My First Pickup

I remember my college roommate Stephen Rotton driving a late 80s Ranger around Irving, TX, my Air Force roommate photogoot and his early 90s Ranger ("I'm a big-truck guy and didn't know it" he exclaimed after trading it in for a 93 Dodge Ram 1500) throughout Hampton Roads, VA, Brad Burton and his late 90s Ranger tooling around Omaha, NE, and drax0r and his 3-month long Enterprise rental of this almost exact truck while we were in Andover, MA. That and an ex-girlfriend had one I towed my 1968 Dodge Coronet 440 to San Angelo, TX with one long, lazy weekend.

So why did I turn to this eponymous vehicle?

BECAUSE TRUCKS ARE STUPID EXPENSIVE. I had no idea. When I was growing up this was not the case. They were strictly utility vehicles. Meet the 2002 Ford Ranger XLT SuperCab 4x4.
