Thanks A+.

It's a 2004, 1,000 miles, all the bells and whistles except FX4 package. I got it for $16,200.

i bought my 2004 ranger similar package as yours w/25k miles for $14k last weeknd... found the truck online @ truck trader.... the guy who i bought it from had just parked the truck @ a delairship and they were asking $17k.... so i feel as if i stole it @ a great price

your price is really good 2 w/low miles also.... enjoy your beauty.

BTW, this was my 1st p/u as a 17 y/o.... a man couldn't ask for much more than this, i'm in love as i'm sure you are 2...

did you trade your vehicle in for this truck or what?

oh i forgot to ask you, is this ranger 2 door or 4 door?

mine is a 2 dr supercab, orginally i was looking @ 4 drs, but ran across a great buy i couldn't turn down. i probably wouldn't use the 4drs anyways, since those jump seats are so tiny and its hard to fit any adults...

Nope, no trade in. I'm 15, I have to wait 3 more months until I can drive it alone...

The dealer bought the truck for $15,900, so the dealer only made $300 on it. We both got very good deals.

What kind of a trailer do you tow with it? I have a 6.5 x 12 that I pull with my Z on it (Toro Z557). My biggest concern is the brakes. Other than that, the truck pulls very well.

Mine is a 2 door also. No adults are going to be able to fit in the back so it isn't a concern of mine to have a large opening.

Hey man, don't mean to bash your truck but fords just don't cut it in my book, silverado all the way. Get a fullsize truck man, not the ranger.

The ranger fits me just perfect. This truck will pull a ZTR w/ a 6.5 x 12 trailer, nothing more. I do not haul mulch, gravel, dirt, etc. I wanted to get a truck that was fun to drive, not something I hated to drive because the truck is mainly for personal use, part time cutting.

I have a similar truck except mine's an 82, with a 4 spd manual transmission, 4 cyl. my truck isnt as nice looking, but I dont really care, its got a rebuilt engine, it runs, goes, stops, and gets good gas mileage, so I dont really mind if its ugly. I'd say you got a pretty good deal on that truck. I'm ford all the way, its what I was riding in since I was about 3, and its about the only brand I'll ever truly like, they look awesome, they arent complicated to fix, and most of the time, they sit high enough I dont have to jack the dang thing up just to change the oil.

yeah it sounds like it will work for you fine ...................no need for a full-size especially if you mostly just mow lawns. Oh yeah Chevy makes pick-ups ...............FORD MAKES TRUCKS!!
