Is this truck a good deal?

Looking (STILL) for a nice Ranger. Found an 2008 Orange FX4, loaded with a lot of options, big axle, etc... 25,000 miles

Orange Ranger @ CarMax

CarMax is giving me a good trade on my car, I owe $16,000 on it and they're offering me $15,000, which is $1,000 more than my dealer is gonna give me.

I jsut think that the price for this Ranger might be a bit high.

Did these also come in a 2 door version? I thought all these were 4D. The ad also states that it's 2WD, but it's definitely 4WD.

They did make them in 2 doors, and that is a 2 door.

That price, in my opinion, is way too high. I just picked up a 05, with 33k miles, for 8 grand less then that price.

holy crap, is that 250 for the 31 spline axle? If so, that's a no brainer option!

That is a nice truck but 20k is a little high. I would pay around 17k for it.

I would almost gaurentee that its a 4WD truck. I dont think they made FX4's in 2WD.

i'd deffinately get the 4dr version. it comes in handy. wtf is "big axel" is that just a fancy way of saying it has a 31 spline shaft? i wouldn't buy from a company that can't tell the difference between a 2wd and a 4wd truck.

I've never seen an Fx4 2dr and you better believe I saved all the pics in my "WTF Ranger" picture folder. Sitting right next to the 3 06+ Fx4's WITHOUT flares. LOL!




Swoopy......2dr's suck. Plus, this one is sketchy and way overpriced. No bueno.

Seems a little high on price.. Definetley 4x4 and also i noticed it was previously used as a business vehicle. Personally i wouldn't like that because i know if i was driving a car owned by my employer id probally beat on it pretty good lol..
