I like the increased height, provided they keep the ground effects to a minimum. That stuff just gets ripped off on the rocks and logs. That particular Ranger looks like an Explorer with the rear cargo area replaced with a half bed. I'd really like one with a standard cab and a standard bed. My work truck is close. It has an extra cab (which could theoretically seat two more people), and a standard bed. Before my department got it, it was used as a survey truck. They had added additional leaf springs in the rear to carry all the equipment. When I got it, I cranked up the fron torsion bars a little to level the truck. Now it's a pretty good off roader, even if the turning radius is a bit wide. The extra space behind the seats comes in handy for my work tools, so I guess it's a trade off. The 4.0L V6 is a gem, but I wish it had a manual transmission so my co-workers would quit asking to borrow it. My personal truck (short cab, short bed full size Chevy) will make tighter u-turns, which is handy on cliff side switchbacks.
