Hey all. I am a semi-pro MX racer from florida. My current ride is a 99 4x4 4runner, but she is going bye bye. In attempt to get out of dept from some wicked hospital bills, I have come across what seems like a good deal.
My friend owns a car lot, and has an 03 base model 4cyl, manual ranger, with 59,xxx miles sitting out there for $5500. He has offered to buy my 4runner for $5500, (which I owe $2300 on), and sell me the ranger for the remaining $3200. Sounds like a good deal right?
Well, here is where I start to sound whiney. I spend a LOT of time in my truck, traveling to MX races all over the SE US. My three major concerns are:
1. Is there any way to make the seats a little more comfortable? It has the whatever material seats, that you slide around in, and it doesn't seem to make for good road trips.
2. Will the 4cyl be ok to cruise at 75-80 mph on the highway? With 2 MX bikes in the back? (~230lbs each)
3. How can I make this baby look cool? I am a big fan of black steel wheels and aggressive tires, but I fear they may look out of place on the truck.
Can anyone show me some pics of a truck like it that looks cool?
Thanks for all the replies in advanced people. I will try to post a pic of my current ride, if my limited post count does not impeed.
