To Sell or Not To Sell

Hey guys, got a question for ya. I have an 01' 4x4, stepside fully loaded with all the goodies. I have the OHC, HID's, Baja Bar with Hellas, a nice system, blacked out heads and tails, and 32's. I love my truck if you couldnt tell, lol.

Now in lies the problem, I've been wanting to double lift my truck for a while now and I'm about be pay it off and have the money to do it. The problem is that it has 151,000 miles on it...

Now I know about either getting a new engine or a v8 swap, but im just wondering if doing all that is worth it or not. I'm sure that everything is going to start failing soon with that much mileage on everything. Especially the paint, Vegas wind sand blasted my truck, lol.

Now the question lies, buy a newer Ranger and start over but not be able to lift it for a while, or just replace everything I may need to on my Ranger as I go...? Any advice would be great guys, thanks.

If you take care of your truck it will last a long time. Double lift it!

i dont know how you would do this but id go diesel! If you could ive heard of these rangers in europe. I dont know if its just talk. But really as long as you have taken care of your truck 150 should be nothing for it at all.

first things first, remove the tint from the headlights lol. And i always learned never invest money into something that you're planning on selling to raise its value.

to the OP- 151,000 miles is only 241,000kms to us canadians which is nothing... if the thing is damn near paid off then why get rid of it and have another payment??? once its paid off you own the thing outright and it dont cost you a dime other then maintainance..

i paid $6100 for my 93 ranger XLT which had 233,000kms on it when i bought it... now it has 264,000kms and hasnt missed a beat.. only things i've had to do on it is a new water pump, starter etc on an older OHV 4.0 V6.
