You don't mention engine size or if it is a manual or automatic.
Price seems good, but I would still pay to get temporary tags and the $60 inspection.
Even if you are going to get it it will give you a "heads up" on future issues.
1999 4x2 Rangers didn't have any special issues, all pickups have issues with rear leaf spring hangers rusting out, lol.
The 2.5l 4cyl, 3.0l, and 4.0l V6 engines were all very reliable.
Manual M5OD-R1 trans was very good
The 4R44E automatic was OK, if maintained.
I happen to like high miles, it means vehicle wasn't sitting in a shop being repaired all the time or owner wasn't afraid to drive because of past repair bills, lol.
But 220k is up there, so you can expect some maintenance expenses, which is why you want the inspection, all those "lifetime lubed" parts do actually have a shorter "lifetime" than we do, so how they get away with using the word lifetime is beyond me, and since you can't lube them you have to replace them.
Although some of these can be drilled and fitted with zerk fitting
Obviously a 2 wheel drive pickup is useless without a load in the back on wet ground, so will this do what you want?
If so pull the trigger, after inspection
