Default Just bought FX4 lvl 2, question on trans

I just bought myself a 2006 Fx4 level with 55k miles, 5 spd manual trans. It has a Hurst shifter (not sure if its original or not) and when in the low rpm range, you can hear a humming type of noise from the shifter (noise is more mechanicalish sounding than a hum I guess). Salesmen said he heard the same noises coming from new Rangers and otehr Fx4's he has sold.

Yeah its a Hurst, says Hurst on the chrome and under the Ranger emblem on the front fender is a Hurst Equipped badge (I am assuming the previous owner put them on, but I figured I'd ask).

thanks guys, real excited to FINALLY have picked up a Ranger. I wasn't really even looking to get a fx4, but thanks to a dealer pricing error i was able to get this cheap. i think i need to swap out the headunit though for one with a cd player
