If a noise from the rear end is heard when going around turns or after driving at highway speed for an extended period, this could be caused by a failing deferential clutch kit. An updated differential clutch kit available.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
Ford has recalled Firestone Wilderness AT and Radial ATX tires installed on multiple lines of Ford trucks from 1991 to 2000. On some tires, under extreme conditions, the tread could separate, which can cause immediate tire failure. This may lead to a loss of vehicle control, injury, and death. Dealers replaced the affected tires.

1995 Ford Ranger Reviews
I have a 1995 ford ranger that we bought about 8 years ago, and it now has around 260,000 miles. It has been running fine, but lately I cannot get it out of park if the truck id running, but in a certain key position when the truck is off it will shift fine but wont start. Does anyone know of what i need to replace to fix this problem? Already tried the ignition switch and there was no luck there. Any suggestions are appreciated.
This truck was my 16th birthday present. So far my father has been adding parts to it to give it more of a teen look. I have added new rims, a fin, dual exhausts, and i am thinking of adding a hood scoop. If anyone has any ideas for this truck please contact me through e-mail.
After 15 years of owning a 1995 ranger that I bought new, I just got a new 2010 ranger. I never even bothered to look at any other type of car or truck because there was nothing better then my 95 ranger. One hell of a truck, never let me sit. Many folks I work with also are proud owner's of ranger's, there bulletproof, and you can run the hell out of them!
95 Ranger 3.0L V6 Splash: This was my 16th birthday present (yes, I was that guy). I'm in my 30s now, and I just drove that same truck to and from work. 16 years and 240,000 miles later, and she turns over every single time. Over those years, I've replaced the master cylinder, alternator, radiator, in addition to standard maintenance (tires, brakes, belt, shocks, etc). The transmission is slowly dying, but I'm busting my hump to keep it anyway. Say what you want about toyota cars, I'd trust a Ranger over any of them any day. Not the most comfy ride, not the best mileage all the time, and not a heavy duty truck, but you can do most of the maintenance on it yourself (unlike those fancy foreign cars), and it won't let you down. I've even been in a couple of decent collisions with it (when I was young) and never had to replace anything that wasn't crushed in the crash. It kept me and my passengers very safe every time - only some seatbelt bruising. I will say - at some point, the A/C will go out because of a poorly designed blend door axle (there's a free easy fix online), and cat. converters are expensive to replace on my model. Also, northern owners will eventually need to replace some undercarraiage parts, but that's typical. Finally, there have been a couple of electrical shorts that caused the dome light and chime to run (I just snipped the appropriate wire in the door), and I had to repair both power window motors at some point. However, when you compare those costs to the costs of new car payments or foreign repair jobs, the truck wins every time. Frankly, I think everyone should own this truck.
