Might be gettin another ranger

Like the title says i might be gettin another ranger. I found a guy who wants to make a trade. He wants my 89 for his 87. Their in about the same shape, body wise. Their both short bed single cab 4x4s. Im about 95% sure his is manual t-case. Their both manual trans. The only real difference is that mine had a 2.9 and his is a 2.3 lima. My motor is already donated to my brother for his 88 long bed. Im not real sure if it runs or not, but I have a newer 2.3 out of a 90 model to put in it. Is it just me or am I getting a lot better deal out of this?

Why would you want to scrap the 2.9 for a 2.3 Lima? Just curious.

Ok, rephrase, why would you trade the 2.9 for a 2.3 Lima?

Just curiosity, everything I've heard about the 2.9 from people that have had them, it was a good motor, and definitely had more power than the Lima. The Lima is a good motor, but not very powerful n/a, and not stellar on gas either.

If it's not going to be a DD, then get it.

I'd keep what you've got, but that's just me.
