I haven't heard of the trailmaster in a while, I'm pretty sure its a old kit that wasn't on the market for very long.

trail master is pretty much junk. it drops everything just like a superlift/rcd BUT it uses your stock knuckle and issues a ball joint spacer on the top.

Do it! Aside from the trail master ball joint spacers being junk it looks good. I think you can always order the super lift knuckles and it will work with the rest of the trail master parts. If you feel like getting rid of your red level 2 seats let me know!

Yeah the trailmaster kit is junk. But it is WAY clean. I'm a neat freak but this guy puts me to shame lol.

I'd probably yank the superlift and go with fabtech since I have my hookups through work lol.

Mike my seats would go into the truck lmao! But like I said i'd only do it if he gets the price lower. Not that its an unfair price I just don't have any reason to get rid of my truck haha. I did tell him i'd trade my truck and 2k on top and he said he'd think about it. He's looking more for a car :/ bleh haha

I'm not sure but it looks like high KBB is around $9,000, you can send him an email with a picture of KBB private party sales and the list of options you used to get the price.

Offer him $9,600 that price is good for 5 days, if he fails to accept the price will be $9,300 another 5 days $9,000, another 5 days $8700, another 5 days $8400, down to $8000. I would make a schedule of prices you will offer on which date.

First only someone that really knows the value of his mods will even care what they are, but will they be willing to pay extra? The bottom line this truck is still a 2002 used truck. For $10k there are a lot of excellent later model used trucks you could buy. He is selling the truck for a reason, and most likely needs money. He will not get anyone buying at the price he is asking. If he really needs the money then he won't wait and take your high offer.

Just rem. if you don't have to buy right now because you need transportation, then there is always a better deal, you just have to keep searching and you can wait until you find the right deal.

Personally I want to save a couple of grand when buying used, and shop shop shop shop, then when I try to make a deal I try to figure out every possible angle to get the price down. I have the cash ready, so there is no delay. (Make sure someone is with you if you are going to take cash.) However I always have an expert mechanic go through the vehicle (at my expense, if there is any hesitancy I tell the owner he can have the report in case we don't make a deal, be sure to schedule this inspection in advance the day you look at the truck, and make sure the owner is ready ok with doing the inspection.

I did have one guy refuse to allow me to do the inspection, he was very comfortable with the condition of his vehicle. So I got him to agree that after I purchased the vehicle I had 48 hours to get a vehicle inspection and if there was anything discovered that would be considered a major repair he had to take back the vehicle and refund the cash. We put it in writing and made the deal. Note he also understood I was driving the vehicle straight to the mechanic shop. The reason he didn't want to allow the inspection, he felt his car was a hot commodity and others would want to see and drive the car, he didn't want to tie it up for a day and lose a possible buyer who might even offer more for the car. Since he had his own auto body shop he put in writing a 90 day warranty for anything up to $300 part cost/ his labor free. That deal was for $2700 2001 Hyundai Accent with only 19,000 miles the interior even smelled new.

Read my purchase of a 2002

its geared at 4.88

i know what bluebook is on his but being a ranger person i understand how much money has been dropped into it.

he's not desperate to make quick cash he's just looking for a car

doubt the price will drop much seeing as winters almost here haha

It doesn't matter what he wants to sell the truck for, what matters is what will people pay. Most won't pay that price for that truck period! Check around on used dealer lots online, you won't find a 2002 for 9K, you will find them for $6-8k all day long. You don't have to pay him for what he put into that truck, buy a cheaper truck and upgrade it the way you want.
If he finds someone to pay him 10 grand he found a real sucker. That doesn't mean you have to be that sucker.

As for not being desperate to sell, every day and every mile that is added to that truck diminishes the value of that truck, if gas keeps climbing even fewer will consider his truck. If this guy has half a brain he knows that, he has already made one price reduction I'm sure more will be coming sooner or later.

Personally if you have 10k buy something newer and mod the truck the way you like. 2004-2007 is the best years for reliability according to consumer reports. Also rem the 2001 & 2002 4.0 had timing chain issues and Ford release kits for replacement, one seriously expensive repair. Had I known about that, I may not have bought my 2002 Ranger 4.0.

Good luck in your quest for your ultimate Ranger

Lol thanks.

Thing is around here that truck would sell at a dealer for over 13 easy.

I would not be a sucker for getting that truck at 10k

I've gone and looked at it a few times. Well kept is an understatement.

True I could find one for 8k and do it myself but why would I when everything on/in the truck is exactly what I would do?
