I'd drive it as a daily driver why not, only 35k on the motor. I want to do this with my 95 with 183k on it right now, at least drive it during the winter so I dont have to put so many damn miles on my current 02 every week. Bought the thing in june 08 with 66k flat now it has 72k on it. Keeps my 02 from getting crapped up. I'm thinking of running it like twice a week and driving the 95 for the rest of the time and winter.

I'd buy that truck man looks to be in okay shape. I'd offer 1300 for it though.

On another note why did they mount those side mirrors like half way in between the door, lol looks funny I've seen that many times but never asked, things BA nonetheless.

lower price i dont see why you cant DD it.

and if something does catastrophically break, either make it a trail rig, or part it out!

or drop in a stupid big motor

I wouldn't give more than a thousand for it and I would use it as a trail rig, not a DD.

if you want a DD buy a car or a better ranger. That wont make a good DD, look at why he is selling it because he has put so much time and money into it to make it run!
