i would love another ranger but i like mine i like being the person with a 2wd ranger that seems to get outta every sticky situation. i dont think my ranger (daisy) would be too happy with me if i got another one, and besides a comanche is my dream truck. once its pushing 37" boggers and i put new gears in it itll be perfect.

I drove a 4.0 commanche 4x4 man probably about 16 yrs ago on a job.That truck flew.Looking back at it, it's probably a rare little truck with those options

I had one of those several years ago and it was black. Still like all the Rangers I've had better than the Comanche. Just my opinion.....if its your dream, GO FOR IT!

You won't loose $$ on a Jeep,that's getting to be an odd ball Jeep which is better for value. Remember the Scrambler? Those are getting to be worth some good coin now.

Just my .02, it's short money and looks clean,why not

You can always just swap the auto out for a manual.

a $1500 -$2500 truck will always be worth at least $1500- $2500. Especially when it is 4x4. If that s the truck you like I see no reason not to buy it.
