yep, and later they will be making the very limited production Raptor XT ( so limited that i believe it wont be even called a production vehicle it will be something like the Ford GT was a few years back) the xt includes a full 4130 cromoly cage, 4 linked rear suspension, functioning bead lock wheels and no vin number for around 100,000

It will definitely be the Crew Cab, which is why I plan to wait. Although, depending on price, it might make more sense to get a regular Crew Cab F-150 so that I can afford to keep the Ranger. Then I'd use the F-150 as a daily and the Ranger for offroading.

I'd definitely sell it private party. Like I said, I think I have just decided to get a nice SuperCrew F-150 instead since my Ranger is paid off. That way I can afford to keep my Ranger to use for offroading.

This is all assuming I donít run across a buyer for my Ranger, but I wonít be actively looking anymore. Iíve actually already had several offers very close to my asking price though.

yeah i think with the economy and stuff, it would be hard to get what you put into it. i would love to have it, but unless i hit the lottery anytime soon, i couldn't get it. i might be getting rid of my ranger and getting a car. i really don't want too, but i have a kid now and need something with a good back seat and not just one that folds up and down.

I don't agree as I've been offered $19K just by someone hearing about it by word of mouth. I'm confident I could get my asking price if I advertised it. Although like I said earlier, I've since decided not to actively try to sell it. Instead I plan to just get a regular SuperCrew F-150 so I can keep my Ranger. And, $20K is not even close to what I have in it.

Thatís the bad thing about Rangers, they are very impractical. They have a horrible ride stock, have no interior room for either the driver and passenger or cargo, can only hold two people, get horrible gas mileage for the size, etc...

yeah, i got a new car. it's a 2007 chevy cobalt and it gets around 30 in town and 33 highway. the payments are higher, but when i figure the amount i will be saving in gas, it will equal out in the end. plus, i can fit my son in the back seat now. and the transmission is going out again, so that would be another 1500 dollars i don't have to fix it. so, sorry guys, no more meets with me.

sorry, the ranger is gone now. the muffler was welded on and i wasn't sure if the new owner wanted it or not and they did. so, guess no more having fun with you guys. it was a blast when we did have a meet though. it was nice meeting all of you and maybe one day i will buy another ranger.
