So.. an initial comparison of a 2wd 2003 ranger thats been modified ( quite severely ) to a 100% bone stock 2010 XL.

Engines :

4.0SOHC that has internal and external work done. Bigger injectors, head work, Super6 cams, Exhaust, MAC Cold air..

2.3 16 valve 8 spark plugs, stock everything..

To make an honest take on this is very easy. Heads-up one sided ass kicking. When the gas pedal is mashed, theres no way to even put the 2 in a similar arena except to say they both have a need for air, spark and fuel to keep running. That little 4banger just doesnt have any nuts at all to it.

Transmissions :

Stick -vs- auto. I HATE Automatics ( Awefulmatics ). Hit the gas and wait for the damn thing to kick down and then you have no choice in gear selections.. They require external coolers, lines and 10 quarts of fluid that eventually leaks all over the place.

I think the first ' mod ' I will be doing is to find a factory manual tranny that will bolt in and ditch the auto thats presently in there. No joke, its THAT bad!

Size :

Regular cab is what I ordered back in 2003 and an extended cab showed up. I almost didnt have the 2003 but the lot didnt properly inform the sales people that in order to get a 4.0 the larger cab was required. To this day, I have only see 2 4.0 reg cab rangers in person. They are VERY rare.

The 2010 has a regular cab. It has plenty of room for what I do. Im not into stereos or needing a lot of capacity behind the seat. The smaller wheelbase is much welcomed for parking and turning radius. Theres quite a noticeable difference between the wheelbase lengths when driving one right after the other.

For me, Win = Regular cab.

Brakes :

I put that SSBC kit on the 2003 back in 2004? 2005? Was a long time ago. Only had to do the pads and rotors on it once.

The 2010 came with discs on the rear and stabilitrack (sp?) functionality. I havent screwed with it to much yet, but I feel the truck doesnt launch at all not because of traction, but an anemic motor.

Performance :

One sided fight here. Blue = 0-60 pretty quickly, I guarantee its under 6 seconds. Honkie? 3 lifetimes later, I MIGHT get there! Its a f-ing brick!

Whats really odd, the 2003 is only 200lbs heavier then the 2010.

Overall : 2 WAY different trucks for 2 different things. I'll live with the 2010 as a daily driver for now. Its going to be quite a change of pace when I see rice on the road and dont have the proper vehicle to run them down.

What does ' factory ' mean?

My first Ranger was an '89 with a 4 banger and a 5 speed. Just made you feel bad because you had an active part in how slow the damn thing went. But those 2.3 engines are ironclad, they last forever
Funny you should mention the SSBC kit. I've had one still in the box it came in under my workbench for 5? 6? years now. My truck and I have other issues, I'll start a new thread in the next couple days.

Im wondering if Skot is still around.
