bye bye edge!!

i might have to get ride of my truck due to the simple fact that my future wife's car is a pile of dung. it's a 1996 ford taraus and it dies randomly and it also doesn't like cranking. my truck is nice and dependable but its not the best vehicle for a family vehicle. once we get on our feet real good we get me a ranger that i want. like Fx4 Level II (freakin sweet). even if i do get rid of it i will remain a fan and member of RF. any inputs on selling price of my truck and dependable family cars for less than 10 g's.


info on truck: 2003 Ford Ranger Edge
single cab, 2x4
3.0L V6, 5-speed manual
6-disc CD changer
euro clear tail lights
stock everywhere else
51,000 miles


any input will help out a lot. thanks

Well, besides the euros, manual tranny, and 6 disc changer, your truck is the same as mine. I saw one in the paper for $9xxx, but I bought mine for $11500 and it only had 25kmi on it back in may. As usual, if you sell it yourself, you'll get more for it.

High miles are a killer, nice truck though. I agree with the "family first" sentiments. You'll get another shot at a ranger, and in the mean time you've got your wife in a safe D.D. and that's the most important thing. Good luck in selling, your local market is far more important than what KBB or NADA says.

I was extremely happy with my Snug Lid SL, and as for the liner i would strongly recomend the Bed Rug.
