    I Just left a deposit on a real nice minty 1993 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 Supercab for $5k. My first truck ever fom a real nice guy. It's in awesome shape for a 93, no rust etc. AC is cold, truck runs awesome. 110k original miles and garage kept. I'm stoked. Are there any older Ford Ranger owners here?. Is there anything I should look for? It's a 4.0 V6 Engine. Automatic. It's coming with a hard top for the bed also. Seems it's going to be a little 4x4 hobby for me now.

    Some pics.

    Cool truck, good score! I like that size truck for around town or even light towing, as long as it has a V-6. I had a 1990 Ranger Extended Cab with 5 speed that I drove forever, even when it lost coolant it kept going. Eventually I sold it to a guy who had looked a dozens of trucks and said mine had the best body. He was going to convert to, I think he said, an Isuzu diesel!

    I was under a Ranger Pickup today. My neighbor lost the drive shaft damper on his, the rubber deteriorated, and it was bouncing around the tail of the trans case.

    My idea of a super cab would be something with eight 12-inch Celestions in it.

    Obviously I read the title of the post a wee bit too quickly.

    Congrats!

    These Rangers and the Toyota Hilux are the best mini trucks ever made. Maybe even the best trucks period, up there with the old 6 cylinder F100 and 150s.

    Yeah I thought the price was a little high. Probably because the great condition it's in.

    Jealous. Used car prices here are currently absurd even for the high mileage rust buckets.

    That's not a bad deal at all for such a specimen, IMHO.

    My main ride is a 1999 Ford E-150 Chateau Wagon with 165k miles. Very reliable van, with seating for 7 comfortably. Fun to take friends out for a meal or to visit an event.

    Got it home several days ago from Stockertown PA. . I have been since fiddling around with it. I waxed it yesterday. Took a waxing pretty dam good. Now I can use it for my band equipment. This is why I needed a truck and why I haven't been on the forum as much. My new old toy.

    I had a base 2009. Bought it with 90k mi on it for $8k sold it with $249k for $5200.

    Had been a Orkin bug work truck before I owned it. Needed 4wd for season pass skiing runs or else I’d still have it! 4cyl unfortunately it wasn’t a stick but even with the automatic it got 30mpg.

    Yours is nice OP one owner low miles pretty sweet. You’re always gonna overpay for clean one owner. Good luck with it!

    Nice truck! I had a ‘96 2WD with the same engine. No complaints at all. I only sold it because I needed something that could pull a travel trailer. Congrats!

    I know the world and tastes have changed but I still don't agree with what Ford came out with as the new Ranger's. The reason they sold a gazillion Rangers since the 80's was because they were smaller affordable trucks which were prefect for commuting, hauling lighter stuff or just general running around. Now they are that much bigger than the old Rangers but have a price tag nearly $30K and for that you might as well just get an F-150.

    They don't seem to understand why people loved the Ranger to start with.
