Melt, I really want another Bronco, but the years i want are still too much money than I'm needing to spend. Yeah I'm a 4wd only guy when it comes to trucks.
if your worried about money do you really want to be paying for gas when your getting 8-10 mpg?

Chuck, the best thing about craigslist is you don't have to commit... you can feel out what people are willing to apy and what they do/don't like about your truck and then you'll know for future!!

Get the Bronco. I like your Ranger, but that Bronco is too good a deal to pass up.

actually it gets 9 and is capable of 11 - 12 if you keep it under 60 ... i never claimed it would get good gas mileage but if someone needs a tow pig for cheap this is the way to go .... and i just had someone call and check it out earlier today

thanks for playing though

back to the bronco i posted earlier, talked with a buddy of mine who is real into 80s ford trucks and his jaw dropped ... cause he paid 1500 for an 85 i6 manual with more miles and a body not anywhere near in as good of condition as that one

Chuck to be honest you will not get anywhere near 6600 for your ranger. But I wish you the best of luck and I hope you get in the ball park anyhow.

As for the Bronco that is a steal if I had the extra cash I would snag it up. But I got other things in the works at the moment

I will keep my eyes open for other options for you to man

Very true Ory. 6600 is too much. But you never know, you might be able to find someone to buy it (someone like that member who posted and said "I wish I had 6k). You might be able to find someone like that who actually has 6k.
