Ok, so I finally have a serious buyer for my car, and need to make a decision. My choices are: Sell my car (2000 Toyota Celica GT AUTO 94k) and get this ranger (to be used as a dd and occasional weekend mudding):
OR keep my car and save up money to buy a beater ranger for weekend wheeling. What do you all think I should do? I have been wanting a Ranger for a long time, just going from 30mpg to 15mpg is a huge difference in spending cash on gas. Thats the only factor keeping me wondering.
If I get this truck, I will put on 31x10.5 BFG ATs unless its got the 4.10s (Im going to look tomorrow the guy doesn't know) in which case Ill probably go with 32x11.5. Probably would throw on a body lift down the road, but keep the same size tires. I dont want to go up to 33's I have read they put too much stress and kill gas mileage. How much of a difference would I notice in mileage going from stock tires (29" right?) to 31's? to 32s?
Also, what is special about the EDGE, why do they call it EDGE, is it different from the xlt? Better or worse? He said it doesn't have power doorlocks or windows, no big deal. Is that truck worth the 7k?
Sorry for the huge post its just a big decision and I need some input. Thanks alot guys!
