Go ahead and start the flaming now, but my first 4x4 truck may not be a K5, but for one good reason: Fuel Economy, 'nuff said. Actually, my DD may soon turn out to be again the '92 5-speed 2WD F*rd Ranger I drove in high school if my dad has his way. But what can I say? I haven't been working for 6 months, so I'm practically broke, and I'm not gonna be working at least until June, so cash is what I'm tight on at the moment, and I need to take what I can get my hands on. That being said, as a precursor to getting a K5, there's only two compact 4x4 trucks I'm considering as a replacement for the 2WD Ranger when I can afford it: Solid-axle pre-85 Toyota (wishful thinking I think around here) TTB 4x4 Ranger (TTB, IMO, is the best IFS 4x4 suspension there is) So can you guys let me go on this, and not flame me to death?
