Default 2005 Ranger XL

Ok I bought a 2005 Ranger Xl from the tow yard. This thing is super clean but has a 155k on it. It looks like whom ever owned it before me did a good job on maintance. When I took it to get smoged the tech was amazed on how well it scored. can anyone give me any tips on what to look for. I did and oil change, tranny filter and oil and the fuel filter. When I went to change the air filter it looked brand new. Thanks in advance

Default Re: 2005 Ranger XL

Sound slike one of my trade ins LOL ... I drive an awful lot of miles so in 4 years I can put 100K on it easily . I would think that the owner just took good care of it . Prbably like sales or a job where He drove a lot . sounds like a pretty good find .

Check the floor mats for wear and tear , under the floor mats , the gas pedal for wear , usual places someone might wear something out . How are the brakes ? Original or rpelaced ? Tires replaced ? Shocks etc ? I assume its runnign reral good if it passed the test ...
