is the 2008 paid off? cuz they probably will tack on what you owe onto the new one. yea, they'll give you 11.5k but you might owe 13k. so the extra 1.5k is thrown onto the 2010 one that would have cost 17k but now costs 18.5k. see.

personally i'd go with vista. also what is wrong with 3.73s? they do fine for me in a manual trans truck.

however, 18k for a 4x4 truck is still pretty good imo. is it a sport or an xlt?

You are making a bad choice. You are buy a brand new 20 year old truck body with a 15 year old engine. You will kick your self in 2 years when the new ranger bodies are out. And you will want to buy one then but you will be upside down 4 grand then not like the 1 grand you are now.

If you want a 4wd now then find or wait for an 03-07 fx4 L2.

is it an xlt or a sport?

I do agree if you want a new ranger why not sell the mazda private party youll get more for it than on a trade in then go out and buy a slightly used 2007-09 ranger 4x4 than again the urge to buy a brand new truck is almost unbareable but I have avoided it this long I must countinue lol

the price sounds fair for the truck. i paid about $27 for mine. i'd trade in before selling it private. that is a guaranteed amount. you could be sitting on it longer waiting for that extra money. is your time worth that extra 1-2k?

it sounds like you wouldn't be taking a huge loss. go for it. as for your girlfirend, keep the two separate. let her do her own thing with the focus. might be easier in the long run.

oh and 3.73s are not that bad. takeoffs might be worse with an auto but my highway milage is great. 75mph is 2500rpms.

When/if you get your new ranger we should have a ranger mini meet.

Just because the a replacement hasn't been named doesn't mean there won't be one.
