Might be finally getting a truck again...

AFter 2 years with a car... i might finally be getting back into a truck again. I had my options this time around, but im thinking im just going to stay with a Ranger :) With ohio winters being what they are, the fact that i have to always borrow my stepdads tacoma when i need to haul something, and with my car being as quick as it is (its going to get me in trouble, i know it lol) i just need to get back in a truck....

Here are my options... im trying to stay under $10,000... also im really itching for a regular car 4x4, just have always liked them.

All are automatics with the 3.0L in them...

Option 1.

2003 with 41K miles on it... $9000



Option 2.

2002 with 82K miles on it... $7500 (but i think they'll deal on it, they've had it a while)



Option 3.

2004 with 72K on it... all power options... $8700



Option 4.

2003 with 69K on it... $9500 (already has dual exhaust, tho needs adjusting, and clear corners)



And Last...

Option 5.

2003 with 73K on it... $8500



Let me know what you guys think... i have probably about a month or so before i can do anything. It would be nice to be back in a truck again... the car just isn't me lol

-Brad

Option #1 has the fewest miles. That would really catch my attention.

Option 2 or 3. They are by far the nicest looking.

#1 would have my vote simply due to the low miles.

Option #4 should be eliminated right now...it looks like practically the same truck as number one...but has more miles, and is more expensive.

I would also say #1 because it seems like the best buy. It has the lowest miles, and is not too far off from the other trucks prices.

But all those trucks seem way over priced to me. A two wheel drive, 3.0 powered, reg cab ranger for 9k? I don't pay attention to Ranger resale values that much, but I do a bit. Seems like you should offer 6500

I vote #1 due to the low miles. I got my 01 back in July with only 58K and #1 only has 41K.

Under the Driver's side headlight you can see a big dent on the front bumper.

Personally, from your choices, I would go with number three. It would be nice to find a Ranger with lower mileage though.
