Ok, so I've just about perfected my garage. Right now though I'm working on what I want my SUV representation to be.

I've had a Rancher XL for quite sometime. It's a good car and I like it, despite its lack of customization. For the longest time, I had my Rancher "donked out." It was my crew color bright purple with big lime green wheels - real obnoxious. As I've perfected my garage though I've decided to limit my two unrealistic/troll cars to my Asea and Minivan.

I've been trying to find a good color and rim combination for the Rancher but I'm having no luck.

Now I'm thinking if I should replace it with a Granger. I had one before but didn't care for how low it sat to the ground. On the plus side, it can hold 8 people.

What do you all think? Should I keep the Rancher or go for the Granger? And what color/rim scheme should I go with?

Dubsta. Better off-roader, more mods available, faster than the pair of them.

Rancher XL.  Does better off-road and even though the Granger can hold eight, it's extremely unsafe to hang off the sides, especially during missions.  Better off using a Bison than a Granger.


I like a nice Red/Black Rancher.  Stock wheels too.

I like my Granger. Quite heavy but I managed to win races. It's a little more powerfull than the Rancher. Also not the same category. It depends how you want to use it.

I've had several Ranchers over time. I think they look really good in silver all over, and the matte olive/desert tan look good if you're after a military look, but I have found it hard to get a two-tone paint job looking nice as the half and half colour split isn't great. Mine is currently stone silver metallic with black wheels (chrome lip). Looks very nice. Another option which I wouldn't normally suggest but seems to fit well on this car (as it looks quite '70s to me) is a dark metallic brown...


Personally I've never liked the Granger. Too long for off-road, too slow for on road and I think it just looks ugly. I know you can cart people around hanging off of it, but never really thought that was useful, so I'd say stick with the Rancher.

I had one of those too. It was a good vehicle, but they're far too common online (yes, I know there's the Dubsta 2). Plus, I like the stock appearance of the Rancher XL and Granger better. For the most part my garage is domestic (the exceptions being the Tailgater, Sentinel convertible, and Sultan) and I want to keep it primarily domestic.

I had Rancher XL-Granger and Dubsta at my garage for a time, and the best looking one is Granger, still in my garage. Driving is not that good but it is huge and looks good.

The fastest is Dubsta also has many mods.

Rancher Xl is just looks good but not worth to have it in garage.

Rancher XL.  Because it's 80's.  Nice truck, and actually performs pretty well all decked out.  Don't lower it.


Here's mine, painted to match the GMC pickup I owned years ago.

I traded my Granger in for a Rancher XL... No regrets about it.

The only advantage to the Granger is that it holds 8. I never had more than 3 people in it.

It's not really an advantage, if it never gets used(Heists, i am looking at you)....

Plus the Granger is the standard vehicle enemies use when chasing you down in missions and such.

Black body, fluorescent blue rims works with most of my cars. Don't laugh. Go try it and see.
