Look like a good deal?

So I was just messing around with Autotrader and found this Ranger. I was thinking maybe selling mine and buying it. Why? Well I want the manual t case for my truck but I can't fine one, its 4 door, it has power windows and door locks and it has less miles. I was even thinking of keeping mine and buying this one to use as a trail truck. The price seems a little low for the miles. Mine is still worth about $9k with 91k miles and its only a XLT. What do you think of the truck?

I would prefer an auto as well but its a good price. I emailed the guy and I'm just waiting for his reply. I think its too good to be true. Blue book on mine is about 9, even with the miles.

I would be suspect as to why he dropped the price so much from the other ad:

Thanks Tommy.

That is a big price drop.

I just like the fact that it have a manual t case, it has power windows and its 4 door. I don't think I'm going to even consider it now. That is way too big of a price drop.

The guy emailed me back and this is what he had to say:

Hello,

The vehicle runs great! It is in excellent condition. I purchased it new off the lot and have been the only owner for the past 4 years. It has the "FX4 Level II" package, which includes all sorts of off-road features such as, front hooks, scrape gaurds which cover all pertinent underbody mechanics, different rear differential, Bilstein Gas Shocks, 4WD Low & High, and a 4.0 V6 which will pull the truck out of anything. When i purchased it, i was a big tent camper and thought the 4x4 would come in handy, but have only used it a couple times and I never camp anymore. I am selling because I have come to the realization that i would be better off with a car.



There is nothing wrong with the vehicle. I have been in two minor accidents, both on the right side. The first accident was a month after purchase and the second was over a year ago. Everything was fixed or replaced immediately after and I have noticed nothing different in the trucks performance. I understand that the word "accident" is a deterrent for people, so i have ordered a Carfax vehicle report which indicates the clean title for your convenience and I have also listed the price under Blue Book to make more attractive.



The truck is tip top and has all of the features that a ranger can provide. It will be hard to find a better deal for the price.



If you are interested, feel free to contact me regarding any questions

I'd go for it. If you're gonna just trail it, what's the difference if the right side had a minor bump and grind. It looks very nice.

I think it would turn into my DD/Trail truck like mine is now.

I still think something is wrong with this truck for $9,000 and it isnt even sold yet. Plus, if you really want a auto, why even screw around with this thing.
