Oooops, after reading other new guys posts, I think I'd better introduce myself a little.

I used to drive a 1994 Ranger, nothing fancy, all stock. Just traded my Ranger for a brand new 2007 Canyon crew cab 4x4. I'm not planning on any mods yet, probably after my warranty is over in 3 years.

I've never been a serious 4wheeler and never wanted to be :D. I only tried once to be as crazy as you guys, but when I saw the bent running boards and the ripped hitch harness I knew I won't get there. All I'm interested in is the accessibility to where I can find my meat buck or meat anything that I can eat. :D

Good site good info.

Thanks guys!

Yeah I did love my Ranger a lot. When the new truck deal was done I almost felt like crying. I bought that Ranger off my friend's dad, then I found out that his dad didn't take good care of it. It was a very nice truck, XLT 4X4. But he never changed oil, never repacked...no nothing. His brother just beated it to death, I guess that's why they tried to sell it. Don't take me wrong, it was still a nice truck. The engine ran strong and smooth, and it was fully loaded. But after I found out that everything was still stock with 225k km on it, I was scared the shite outta me. I spent a lot $$$ trying to keep it in shape, changed oil every 3k km, repacked the bearings, replaced starter...all kinda shite, but who knows what was gonna fall off every once a while? Ahhhh, man! :(

Mine is I5 engine, inline 5 (5 cylinders). 242 hp, 242 torque at 2800 rpm. I bought it somewhere this Feb, so the engine is still breaking in. The first couple of tanks of gas didn't do a lot mileage for me cuz I basically was doing short city drive. The MPG wasn't even close to what they claimed as 20mpg in city/28 mpg hwy. But I can see my gas mileage getting better and better. I'll have to wait till summer to conclude my truck's gas economy, but I believe it'll only be a lot better. Canyon's 4x4 capability is awesome with its rear locking diff. My rear ratio is 3.73, and this truck can own a Ford easily. Overall it's an excellent small size truck, and you don't have to overpay for it.
