Default thinkin of a 3.0l 4x4 ranger but need some info

hey guys been awhile but i still stalk around.

http://mansfield.craigslist.org/cto/2357408524.html


was looking at this truck.

was gonna talk to him about a trade for my ranger since it sounds like he wants MPG's.

but i need some info on these 3.0l motors.


are they any good? how does the tranny hold up behind it? is it reliable?

how hard will the 4x4 be to fix? thanks guys

Seems to me like theres a lot of work involved. If your truck is in fair condition its just best to stick with yours. the 3L is underpowered and doesnt have that good fuel economy. I just think theres to much work needed, but thats my imo
