Beating the pavement

Our little trucks transmission is going out and we are starting the search for its replacement. It’s 17 years old and has a few dents and rusted spots but still get us to hear and there (within 20 miles) without grumbling. It’s been a great little truck. My girls grew up in the back of that Ranger into the front seats. We’ve been on many camping, 4-digging, and horseback riding trip (the reason the transmission is going- sorry baby red). It’s still our go to vehicle for quick trips to town or Sunday drives in the hills. Well it was- now I’m out looking for a replacement and not happy with my options.
