Love my Ranger lifted, 33’s, awning, rhino racks, rear drawers custom, bar work and snorkel. With all mods fuel consumption has increased dramatically, other than this it’s reliable and tough off road. The rear lockers do their job well and the handling is impeccable.
I use this car for work, family and play. As a work car it does what I need, probably overkill to be honest. Family car it’s perfect, load up the back and head to wherever we need to go as long as the carpark is higher than 2.1m, ha ha.
As my play toy she goes well, have had to winch her out more due to driver error than the cars. It does hills like a dream although in 4lo I think the gearing could be better. There needs an in-between on the 1st and 2nd gear, 1st too slow and 2nd too quick. Not sure if manuals are any different.
It goes where I point it, rutted, hilly, tight, it does it. Would definitely buy another.
