Is your 04' 4x4? If so it might not really be worth it IMO

The 04 is a 4wd but I want a new truck with all these options, just the color is holding me back.

I have an 04 4x4 xlt...

come this summer... ill have a limited slip.

I wouldnt trade my truck for anything... altho... there was that camaro....

moving on...

Everything a lvl2 offers, can be had, rather cheaply, with a bit of dilligence.

My truck is a 2 door. I added power leather seats for $298 delivered, and now have oodles of room, to stuff crap back there. the factory seats suck. end of story.

Oh did I mention my seats are leather?

something to keep in mind, if you bought your truck new, like i did, you know everything its been thruogh.. buying a used truck, you know nothing. My truck... I clean it, and keep it that way, people get in it and question the year... I have had mechanics question me on the cleanliness of my truck... a used truck, you are at a loss.

I would never buy a 'PLAY' truck, aka a daily driver unless i had the time to tear it a new one,

simply cause, ALOT can hide under the bed which you cant see, unless you pull it.

My advice, upgrade what you got. its not worth it.

I'm not sure but a dd lvl2 would be sweet. I took the drop-in liner almost out since they all rust up front and there wasnt even surface rust. I will let the guy sit on my offer and see.

Price seems a little high... come here and buy mine! A year newer, less mileage, already lifted and it's cheaper!

I have one as a DD. It's really not that sweet. Its a normal Ranger with a chrome shifter and Alcoas. I just bought it cause I liked the manual transfer case.

Biggest thing for me was the all black interior. Makes a big difference over the grey

But it doesn't really make it sweet. Sure it's nice to have something different, I like my truck, but don't consider it sweet. Maybe if it had an RCD 5.5 and some 33s...naw even that wouldn't make it sweet.
