Pre Runner worth it?

There is a guy i know with a Mid 90s ranger. It was built by barneys is napanee Indiana (something like that) for tough truck compitions. It won its first year and then the truck was sold to a guy. He drove it then my friend buddy picked it up. It had a bad tranny. He replaced the tranny and a bunch of bolts and odd and ends and fixed it up.

Its very nice I little over 100k miles. It has a full roll cage, 5 point seat. I belive it has a I beam suspension set up. I am not sure what it is called. It has resivores for the shocks. Everything is beefed up. Jsut wondered what it could be worth. he has been set on 6k for 2 years now and no luck, thinking of maybe trying to pick it up for 3k

I do not have a pic but this is what it kinda looks like....I will post a pic when I find something that looks close.

Let me know what something liek this is worth...also there is not heat or airconditioning

Its nothing special I am trying to search on the net for the pics he had of it. Its just as clean as zabeards truck. with some minor dents from the tire smacking the fender but nothing major. I am searching the tough truck challenge pics. there is also a dune picture of it jumping. Its yellow with bluish water looking type marks down the side

I belive it was raced in 96 and 97. then a guy bought it and beat on it. the last owners have had it for 5 or 6 years. they pretty much retored it. They are a very trusting family everything has to be tip top shape.
