My $800 1997 Ranger 4x4...

Some times they just fall into your lap...

I got a call one day from a friend. "I'm sick of this damn thing. You want it?"

Next thing I know he's handing over a signed title and I'm laughingly handing him $800.

It's a '97 4x4, 150k miles, 5 speed manual, no frills (manual windows, locks) runs like a champ, a bit rough cosmetically but I think it's a friggin steal.

What do you think?

Thanks.

BTW, the truck came with a new front fender - just need to mount it.

No plans for this truck yet. I'll probably just leave it as is for a while, but knock the dents out. But I imagine it'll become my off roader...
