To buy or not to buy...

Im thinkin of trading in my 06 sport, for an 05 4x4. I am not sure if it is what i want. It is through my work. I would really like an 06-07 4x4.

Some info on the truck;

TRANSMISSION*
Part-time 4x4-wheel drive selectable while driving, automatic hubs, manual and speed limited (manual only)
4.1:1 axle ratio
Rear limited slip differential
Manual five-speed transmission with shift lever on floor, 3.72:1 first gear ratio, 2.2:1 second gear ratio, 1.5:1 third gear ratio, 1:1 fourth gear ratio, 0.79:1 fifth gear ratio, low/high gear ranges and 2.48:1 low/high gear ratio 44J



Any feed back on there.. If i do get it, i will transfer my tires over and anything else that i have put into it.. radio, subs.. etc.

yea...you won't get stuck on slick grass like last time. lol....do it. And you can always swap the '05 grille for a '06+ grille. The corners as well.

Well i didnt end up buying the truck. Seems my work likes to lie on the internet. It had no power locks, windows, mirror's.... Hell it wasnt even a FX4.

But, now i am looking at an 08 Sport 4x4. Rebates, and Employee D plan!

That sucks. There's a dealer on craigslist with an ad for a 03 fx4 level 2 with a manual trans.......YET, pictured both in multiple ads and on their website, it's a 03 edge auto. I even emailed back and forth argueing with them. Dealers are funny.

Good luck on the 08 sport...imo, the best looking ranger since the '03L2.

Well i didn't end up getting an 08 either. Didnt have everything i wanted in it. Also, since i've only had the 06 for 4 months, i would have rolled over 4k negative equity, so im leasing a 08 F150 STX for 3 years.

Once that is done, it will get me back out of the whole.
