Need OPINION!

So as of right now im slling my 02 ranger because it doesnt have ac!Me and the gf thinkin it has to go!Im looking at this ranger for sale on craigslist but im not the most thrilled about it!need your opinion should i get it or keep looking?

cons-
I think its too much for the year
its an automatic personally i like manual.
im not thrilled that its a older model.
It looks arent my fav.
i dont know the milage?
its carpet (i like rubber floors its easier to clean when you get mud on it)

pros-
its close to home
its a truck
has ac
2wd so itll get good gas milage

thnks for the help

This is a girlfriend, not a wife or fiance even. Don't make such a big decision in your life solely because someone you might not even be with next month told you to.

I'm with them... don't buy something you don't like, and don't let a girlfriend push you around. I know florida can be HARSH without AC, but there have got to be tons of trucks around with AC! Find one you like, if you feel that YOU need to have AC for your happiness.

Or let your GF drive around in her car!

lol


It's a dealer selling and the mileage isn't listed so most likely it's a rip-off and you're better off just to keep looking. I'm with Andy on just keep looking for what you like. If you have to replace your truck, get something you like within your means. Tell your girlfriend to wear less clothes, it's a win-win situation for both of you =]

I'm with them. Buy something you like, don't rush into anything and shop around.

That is so sweet! That lift is incredible! But i think its too much for me! Thats a ridiculously big lift!

I found another one that is located more up in northern fl, the truck looks good.Price and miles are a little high though.the price would be nice if it had like 75k some mile.Should i worry about the miles?Or should i keep looking?thnks a lot guys i really apreciate it!

Shes a lot more important then my truck, not just some girl & Ive been wanting an extended cab for a while and the ac was just the final thing.Ive been with my gf for over 2 years now and have been living together for almost a year and half. Its a joint desicion. Plus mines a regular cab and we decided a extended cab with ac would be a lot nicer.

Florida humidity's really is hard without ac.Why on earth do they make vehicles without AC???

Take your time, decide exactly what you want as far as options, engines, air, cab, etc.
They go looking. It may take longer, but; you'll be happier in the long run.

Personally, I wanted a V8 Dakota or 4.0 Ranger, 4X4 with manual transmission, manual transfer case and extended cab.

Took me months, but; I finally got it. Couldn't be happier.
If I'd have compromised, I'd be regretting it now. (8 months later).

Each is different. If I don't get at least 150K, I'll be ticked.
Hoping for 200K.

I would not go from an 02 to a 98. I have a 98 and sometimes I wish I had a 01 or newer. Not that I don't like my 98 but sometimes I wish I had a new looking interior.
