Aloha from the Big Island! I was in the market for a midsized pickup... checked out the competition and the Ranger had the best to offer! The only other truck I seriously considered was the tacoma trd offroad. Luckily they were sold out because the Ranger is way more comfortable and offers so much more.
Most of my friends and coworkers are taco guys, and there are only around 3 rangers I see in the wild in Hilo to Volcano area.
I took it for its bedlining yesterday and I already miss it. Anyone else notice how easily the bed paint scratches?

Howzit everybody,
Here’s my XLT on Oahu. Been almost a year with it but I never took pics until recently. Anyone take their trucks up peacock flats yet?

Howzit Alec,

Drove up Mt. Kaala years ago in my '86 F-150 4x4, found that 4 wheel drive was needed to descend the road because of the grade, had to shift to 4 low in some places otherwise I would have fried the brakes. If I am not mistaken Peacock Flats is in the area

Here's my 2020 Lariat 4x2 S/Cab, it don't go nowhere...was delivered Jan 18, 2020 from Cutter Ford it was the very first 2020 to be landed in Hawaii. I special ordered it in Aug. 2019, took 5 months to get it here, all told.

So far it's got 320 miles on it, yups you read correctly, I've owned it for 20 months and I've driven it a whopping 320 miles...

Aloha everybody. Nice to see more rangers showing up. Just got mine and happy with the decision. Didn't want to be another Taco owner, did that a couple times. Nice trucks just overpriced and THEY are everywhere. I have only seen a couple of 5G Rangers on Oahu but tons of the vintage ones.

320 miles?? Is something else the daily driver, or were you the safest and most responsible stay at home-er? I just hit 5000, about to change my oil and oil filter for the first time myself.

I stand corrected, it's traveled 315 miles since I took delivery on 1/18/20, my daily driver is a decrepit '02 Honda CRV.
I changed the oil and filter on the Ranger on 1/16/21, it had 281 miles on it then...saved the oil for my lawnmower, generator, etc., my last name ain't Lee for nothing...lol

no build date. Only been a month. Not confident it will get built.
Yeah, with the current state of affairs you may be right, not to mention that Rangers are assembled only at one plant.
If it's any consolation, my 2020 Lariat took 5 months, from ordering to final delivery...
Hope your's gets built...🤞
