Looking at..... THIS ONE!

1999 Ford Ranger *^%&%*^^%%$^%$&^$$^$&^$^$$^$%&%&

the guy better not sell it before i get to look at it.


It's in pretty good shape from the looks, except a small crack in the fiberglass on the p/s rear. It'll get me by till I can afford my 4x4.

i'm still looking, but its a possibility. I would really like a gen 4 ex-cab style-side. 4wd or 2wd ( if i get a 2WD it gives me an excuse to do the SAS)

that 2wd looks like a nice truck but its a bit overpriced IMO. if a 4x4 is what youre after i wouldnt settle on anything but that. theres alot of trucks out there, you should be able to find what you want.

i really don't see whats embarrasing about it, its not half bad looking, if you wanted to see embarrasing, you should have seen the 2003 steppie i looked at, that ***** had not one matching tire on it, 2 different wheels on it, bondo cracking out on the corner of the cab,a nd looked like someone puked over the engine

i say go, and take a peek at it, worst case scenerio you walk away from it. i would have loved to have that 03 steppie, but the negatives outweighed the positives

Yeah, I'm probably gunna end up having to wait a while till I have a little more cashola. Just settle for a $500 running one for now. But I do need a set of wheels in the next month or so.

i wouldn't mind it but yeah, over priced. In all honesty you should just hold off if you want a 4x4 and wait for the right one to come up when you have the money.

what I don't understand is why you have to buy a cheap truck? why can't the insurance just fix yours or cut you a check for a new one if they totaled it, I understand you were at fault but its not like they're not going to pay you.

ya......what corey said...

it confuses me what your looking at. your options should be in a higher price bracket?
dont settle for crap unless u want to work on crap (not saying either of the links are crap trucks, just that a 500dollar truck is going to be crap...)

not a bad looking truck in my opinion. but if you want a 4x4 then just be patient and wait till the one for you pops up.

I'm sure a lot of guys will question this but I don't think I'd want a SAS'ed truck as my daily driver at 18. I've driven a highly modified vehicle as a daily driver and it just gets old. I'd just find a decent 4x4 to get you started then mod it slow as you have money and time.

if i had to choose between the two you posted, i'd go with the second one and get either a topper or a toolbox for the bed.

why do you only have 2500? didn't you get more from the insurance company?
