Looking for advice

So my 2003 Fx4 L2, 52k miles better than good condition for its age is up for sale. I posted it on craigslist and autotrader on Friday for $10,750. A guy that test drove it offered me $10k for it. I was thinking of countering at $10,300. This will leave me with $2,500 to use to do some much needed improvements to my '96.

Any thoughts?

I have two rangers.
I have a lien on it.
I can use the money form the sale of this truck to fix up the paid off '96.

Which will result in one vehicle with no auto loan.

ok, so i countered at 10,300 and told him I would keep the 6 disc mp3. He counter at 10,500 as is. I took it.

I don't think that is too bad for a 6 and a half year old truck.

By lien I mean loan.


I figured that 10,500 is a pretty good price, I know other members have tried selling their trucks for that much with more mods still on them. I took off my k&n fpik as well as my black housing clear corners so those will eventually be up for sale. I also sold the leer canopy about a month ago for $500.

you and me both. But I don't need two ranger, a loan, and the '96 needs work. Just off the top of my head I need new shocks and rear leafs, that shoudl only be about $550, but the labor is going to kill me i think.

Make a list of everything needed to swap out those parts and compare it to the list of things I have below.


What I have:

1. Truck
2. Parking space
3. Well this is where the parts will go if I order them.
