Howdy, I've been on here for a few weeks now in anticipation of a Ranger that I was going to get. It was a 1998 Ranger Ext. Cab XLT 4x4 with 88,450 original miles, had a 4.0 liter V6 and it was only $3,800
I was all pumped to get it and on my way to get it when I called the owner to make sure that he would be there....and he told me that he had sold it. Wooo that made me really happy. Anyway, here I am a week or two later and now I find a 1997 Ranger Ext. Cab 4x4 with 83,015 original miles for $3,500. So this morning I called the seller every hour on the hour until he answered (he picked up at 9:13) While talking to him I ask him the basic questions, which engine does it have?, is there anything wrong with it?, and when can I come look at it?.
The guy (Tony) says that he thinks
its a 4.0 liter, no there is nothing wrong with it, and that I can come look at it on Friday...No earlier.
Anyway, this isn't just me venting (or I would have put it in that sub-forum) I wanted to ask you fine folks what it is that I should look for when I go see this "good deal" like some common problems and how can I make sure that it is the 4.0 liter, I imagine that it just says what it is on the engine cover (or somewhere else equally visible) but I want to make sure that I go into this being as knowledgeable as possible.
Oh and just for fun here is a picture of my current Ride:
EDIT: just noticed what time it was now I have to go to work, so I won't be back to see your responses until tommorow morning.
