Leaving the fold and will miss my 1998 Ford Ranger XLT

Hey guys it's been a mixed week for me. I currently have a 1998 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0 with 76K on the odometer. My father purchased this truck brand new and gave it to me about 3 years ago with 61K on the clock. Being that this was my father's truck I always loved it. However now that my wife is having a baby, it was time to buy something with 4 doors to haul a baby seat and the dogs around, thus I am going to be selling my truck.

I already purchased a 2009 F150 XLT SCREW which I love however it wasn't my dad's truck. Real quick what do you think I could get out of my truck? The specs are above and it has a matching colored topper.

the ranger is gorgeous. very similar to mine and basically same story. my father bought it new, put about 60k on it, i've driven it up to 110k and it purrs like shes new still. you got different priorities then i do with the kid/wife and whatnot but i don't intend on ever selling my pop's ranger. whenever it's no longer a daily driver it's getting a 5.0 swap.

in missouri, you could get between $2000 and $3500 for it probably. a lot of people will pay money knowing it has one owner with that low of miles.

Yeah it's not perfect by any means, it's got a few hail damages on it but mechanically it's good as well as it's very low miles. I'll miss her mainly because she was my dads. I haven't even got an idea on what to price her at either.

Suggestions?

This truck is from my father who lives in St. Louis, MO and now I live in Austin, TX :) It's a MO truck!

up here you could probably see 4-4500 for it. if you don't have any payments on it (which im guessing you dont), why not just keep it? keeps the mileage low on the F150. does it have a 5.0? I know its not an ecoboost since the front plate bracket isn't offset for the intercooler

Yeah the crazy part is that I posted the CL ad at 11pm and by the morning I had 3 firm committments to buy the truck sight unseen at my asking price of 5K. First guy in line bought it immediately.
