i bought a 94 ranger today. 4 cyl, 188,000 miles. new clutch, tires, and brakes. one owner vehicle, was my best friends, all regular maintenance has been done on time (i know because i have been the one doing it)...$100.00 :) :)

i think i'm going to remove the pickup box and fab a flat bed with stake sides and drop gate to use as a mowing vehicle on the days that i only have to haul one mower around. should save some substantial $$ in gas as i only get 8mpg when driving the 4 runner with the 16' trailer loaded. for $100, even if i part it out, i'll still come out ahead.

yay for friends :clapping: :clapping:

Good deal. I liked that body style from 93 on in the Rangers.

thanks mike, but i thought more about it and i'm going to get a friend in the upholstery business who owes me some favors recover the headliner and seats, clean it up, and run it through the sale. i'm thinking should bring a grand or so based on other vehicles i have sold that way. $800 profit is good.
