hey all

hey guys so I'm a future ranger owner and i had a few ? (not sure if this is the right thread or not)

1)im curious how long they run on the account ill be buying mine used
2)whats a good price/mileage ratio to pay
3)can i get an idea on mpg iv heard anything from 15 to like 30+
4)does the tire size effect the mpg enough to actually notice or is it more like if your tiers arnt uniformly inflated?

thanks for the help

Welcome!

1) It depends entirely on the generation and the how well it's been mantained. Usually, taken care of, any Ranger will push 200k easy. But, they do go bad if you don't take care of them.

2) Google KBB or Kelly Blue Book. Generally if the vehicle has over 15,000 miles per year start lowering the price.

3)What year, engine? 4x4 or 4x2? Manual or Auto?

4) YES. On my 94 3.0L I went from 15 city to 12 when I got bigger tires, BUT I also did not re-gear the rear end.

im lookin for a 4x4 and i really dont want anything under a 2000

i like the edge and splash rangers but the model dont really matter to me as much as dependabilty and the abilty to personalize it

and from what iv read through out the forums i think ill go with a 4.0
