Is this ranger a good deal?

LMK what you Ranger gurus think I know the mileage is high... but heck just as long as it runs good?

Looks like a good deal to me, if it were in my neck of the woods I'd be interested.

For the price I'd say it's alright. I think the 4.0 OHV engines are pretty durable, so I don't think the mileage is as bad as it seems.

Looks like the front end got pushed in a bit, too.

But I still be interested at that price.

Exactly WHY does it need a new rear leaf spring? Doesnt seem like a normal wear and tear item to me. It could be a sign of prior abuse, and other future problems.

it seems like a pretty decent deal. could be a solid truck, but for $2500... youll be able to put some cash into repair all the major issues. with regular maintenance that motor should last more than 200,000 easy.

i had one snap on me and everyone that knows me knows that i baby my truck accept for my avitar pic that the most extream thing i have done lol.

but the drivers side midle leif in the pack snaped and i needed a new one.
Then they were sagging and i swaped then out for a bigger leif pack so it dosent show or mean it was really beaton on .

looks like a good truck if the things get repaired! almost same as my truck but it looks like its got tiny tires on it lol

He has no tailgate, he probably used it to haul stuff or maybe had small camper on it.

in 179K miles the bands on the leaf pack could have rusted through
not really a big deal unless you see that the supports have rusted or they are bent from carrying too heavy a load
