    What’s the story on these?

    My son is looking for something along these lines. Does anybody have any experience with this model and do they have a history of issues that we need to look out for or try to avoid?

    Can't really go wrong with a 4.0 Ranger. They're tough. The camper part, I know nothing about.

    The only thing drivetrain related I know to look out for is in the SOHC 4.0, there can be timing chain tensioner issues. At that mileage, it should be fine.

    Rear is an 8.8. Unless it's an FX4 model it's 28 spline instead of the 31 spline everyone gets out of explorers. There's still support though, or it could be swapped for a 31 spline. Explorer axle is 1" wider too.

    Front is an ifs dana 35. It's strong enough as long as you don't go crazy.

    Good many bumper options. Sliders there are some specific ones or the universal trail gear kit.
