Body lift and tires doesn't make it worth well over blue book.

Depends what you want to do.

Personally I'd rather take a stock ranger and do all of the mods and upgrades myself..
So I'd lean towards the second one.

However if you really like the first truck's setup a lot then I'd say its not a horrible price for it.

Mods dont add value. Plus the fact that it has been in an accident would make me talk the price down even more. The truck itself looks really nice. If you like it then go for it, but haggle the price a little. He's asking too much. If you can get him down another $2000, you pretty much saved the cost of the tires.

I found these on Kijiji in the Edmonton area. Personally I think the prices you have found are too high.

Of the 2 the second is a better option. You can mod it yourself how you want it and it has never been in a wreck.

Wouldn't swapping out an entire auto tranny be less work than doing a clutch?

Cuz my clutch was 8 hours labour. Doing the clutch you basically rip everything apart anyways. Front driveshaft comes out,exhaust gets dropped, shifter gets pulled out, transfer case is dropped etc etc etc....

Good point...but considering my truck has 415 000km and is still on the original tranny but on it's 2nd clutch, which alone the 2 clutch jobs was 16 hours labour...

Me either, I'd keep looking or make him drop the price quite a bit. He's asking way to much and everybody knows you don't get and shouldn't expect the original value of the mods you put on it.
