Depends on what year model it is. Obviously 150k is a lot on a 2009 but not so much on a 2000. If it's taken care of, you can get 300k out of these trucks. There's a thread somewhere on here where everyone posted how many miles were on their trucks.

Honestly if it's me I'm looking at stuff under 100k. Between 100-150k is usually when more maintenance items need to be taken care of soon, or already taken care of. If it has good documented work history, then I would feel a lot better about buying something with a little higher miles. Anything over 150k is something I'm not going to invest very much money into purchasing and would typically be a beater or project.

Mine has 188k and still going strong. Could use a tune up and a couple little things like any other high milage vehicle. A friend of mine has a 97 with 275k. He just takes good care of it and it just keeps on going. Rangers are strong little trucks. As long as you take care of them, they last a VERY long time.
