What about a 4 door Dakota? I'm not really a dodge fan, but a 4.7 v8 in a midsize truck would be pretty nice.

Meh I'll find me something. Either way the Ranger is going (I love it but its gotta go). I drove the ranger yesterday and today and it felt like I was in a tank driving over rocks. Harsh ride to say the least compared to the nice quiet ride of an F150. F150s ride soooooo nice.

I am test driving a Scab right now to try out all of my options. Its an 05 larait. Just a year newer, but anyways, i dont think I want this particular truck, just drove it to try out the Scab. Its nice though. All the same options as my 04 had minus subwoofer.

Also, the engine does NOT have the diesel sound my 04 had and is not lacking power like my 04 did. It doesnt bog for a second when I get in on the gas sometimes like the 04. Just testing the waters, test driving a few more



Also, overall, the truck is in super excellent condition. the red one looked good from afar but up close it had plenty of knicks and scratches and alot of faded plastic. This one doesnt.

Im hoping to find a loaded FX4 crew cab though
Well if you got that white one you could sell that bull bar in the front and make some cash like you did with the 04 lol.

Exactly! You need it nice already. Modding is fun but it's nice to start off with something that even stock is a winner. Great call on the baby vs. money. Once it pops, you can't stop...Spending on it...Wow sorry guys that was kinda a gross statement. I think I should delete it but naaaaaa. :-P

mmmm..factory chrome.



Good luck to you finding one without the cam phaser issue. Nothing like a 20,000 mile truck that sounds like a 6.0L diesel.

very true!! I am actually going to look for an 09 now. The way the financial situation is working out, I would have to get an 08 or newer to be able to finance 72 months (I dont want to do 60, payment is way to dang high). for 24k dollars at 4.75% interest, its $400/mo which im comfortable with. So I can find a low milage (around 20-24k miles) 09 for that. But if i can find an 08 larait crew, then i will
