I was new at manual when i bought my truck.. took me a good day to get it down, they key is practice, go out driving whenever possible and you'll have it in no time. That truck sounds like a good deal! Good luck with your search.

I'll never drive an automatic as long as my left leg still works.

No push button 4WD either.

Old School for an Old guy!

Remeber guys, you gotta pay to play.....Its a Ranger, not a F-350.

Take care of the thing, and dont beat the **** out of it, or strech it to the limits and it should be a good truck. Im not saying you wont have problems, but idk how you can expect it to hold up when you rip on it all the time.

I personally would look at an 04+ ranger..
