Sad day for the Ranger (time to sell)

Well it looks like I知 going to try and sell my Ranger. When I bought this truck, I researched and found exactly the one I wanted, planning on keeping it for a long time. Things have changed. I now need a vehicle that can safely haul four people; this includes child safety seats when the time comes (we池e not pregnant yet). Also has to be automatic so the wife can drive it. Other issue is that we are paying around $750 per month on auto payments, so I知 going to need to lower that too. So I知 going to have to sell my 2002 FX4 Ranger. There are only a few like it that have the manual transfer case. I知 hoping to find someone that can appreciate how great a truck it is!!!
What I知 going to look for is a used Super Crew under 15000 (probably doesn稚 exist) or a used Grand Cherokee. This will be my DD, I値l work on getting a toy to wheel later I guess.
I really don稚 want to sell my Ranger. This seems to be the only option though that will allow us to save to buy a house. We池e trying to sell her 04 Hyundai Tiburon for a 4 door car as well that will have a lower payment. I知 pretty frustrated with this, but it looks to be the only option.
I haven't come up with price or other info yet. When I do, i will post it here.

Well if/when the new International Ranger comes out I think the Crew Cab will be an option. The Crew Cab 1500 (Dodge), or was it something else?

Yep or buy the Sport Trac Adrenaline since they stoped the production.

Do you want a new truck? Because the words New, crew cab, and under $15,000 shouldn't ever find their way into the same sentence.

Well, Nate, it's how it goes with the family thing. You're pretty young yet (compared to me anyway, lol) and there'll be time down the road for offroad trucks and whatnot, even if you have to compromise for now.

Good luck on finding what you need!

Whatever I find will just be "NEW" to me....
Looked at a 2000 Grand Cherokee Limited last night. Had a nice V8. It's loaded. They are asking $9850 for it. Only issue is that it has 98000 miles on it. Not feeling too confident on that. It's been well maintained and looks very nice though.
