I would agree, that is a little high priced.

However, it is a nice rig with lots of stuff done.

with the mileage thats on it, and the production year.. not to mention i'm sure its been romped on a bit, i'd drive it and see how it feels. it is a nice rig, with alot of good quality upgrades, after driving it i'd start with a low, but not un-reasonable number probably around $6500, then go from his counter offer.

i'd pay 6500 for that truck.

He put 3k into the engine recently.....WHAT was done?? It's a decent looking truck with tons of stuff done to it. To the right buyer, i could see him getting 9k for it.

Ask for receipts!!!! Anyone can say I had blah blah blah done. That price is pretty high. I wouldn't even sell mine that high and I only have 70,000 miles.

Yeah way to High, What Size Engine is It ? Auto or Manual ? 3000 in engine What was done for 3K ?
All questions that need to be asked I know it is a really nice truck with alot of good performance upgrades but I wouldnt even pay 6K for it. Its to miley well really not for a 10 year old truck but there is another point 10K for a single cab ranger thats ten years old I dont think so.

I'd pay 7-8k for it as long as it doesn't have any serious problems.

Seriously I paid 3K more then that for my 06 F150 supercrew 4x4 with 40k miles. That ranger costs way too much.

$3000 into the engine ?? He's probably tied of dumping money into a lemon. Chances are he was rough on it and the rest of the truck is probably worn out too. The lights on the roof don't impress me at all.

Bottom line ?? I wouldn't touch it.

I'd want to find out what has been done to that engine first. Maybe worth $7-8k, looks really nice though.

Way too high priced. It's a stinkin' Ranger. I think we all know you don't get NEARLY what you put into one when you try and sell it. There are some vehicles you can kinda get what you have in it mod wise...Ranger is certainly not one. Looks like a $5-6000 truck to me

The 3k went to a top end rebuild because of a cracked head.
