New member- seeks fishing wagon advice
My '78 Jimmy PU is on its last leg and I've settled on a Ranger as a replacement. I'd like to have: An extended cab so I can lock my stuff up; a 4-wheel drive since I'm getting too old for digging and pushing; and a manual transmission. I hate to buy a new pickup since catfishermen are known to haul bait that stinks to high heaven, and drive through some spots that would scrape the hide off a 20-year-old mule.
So what's my best bet? A Ranger a couple of years old that still has a warranty, or get an older model and hope for the luck of the draw. Are there any year and engine options that I should avoid--or that you would reccomend? Any feedback will be appreciated.
