So my 160,404 mile Ranger is being laid to rest on Tuesday.
Transmissions going out, rear brakes don't work (rusted out), the shackle that holds the rear pass. side leaf spring on is torn, all my struts and shocks are gone, my ball joints need replacing, all 6 or however many U-joints are on this thing are gone, driver side front wheel bearing is gone, and my steering knuckle has rusted away.
Man, and all this time I thought my transmission problems were just the fact I had a 17 speed tranny. I didn't know that was slippage.
Anyone got a decently priced 4x4 in Florida for sale? That uhh...works?
I will say this now, and swear upon it. I will never buy another used vehicle with an automatic transmission until I've got a family or something of the sort. Older automatic trannys aren't meant to last long. Especially on a 4wd truck.
