Default Little Help

hey guys idk if anyone saw my post about the truck i was trying to get in the new member section but i dont think the dealer is going to play ball enuf. bear with any typos or things because im on my phone so its hard for me to search n look at so many threads like how the years and trim packages differ. but basicaly my question is is 00 thru like 05 the same. i know it might cont on but i cat afford really newer then an 05. i have about 6000 trade in value n up to 6,500 loan so i basically have to be out the door by no more then 12,500. my requirements are is has to be 4x4, extended cab, and low miles. what years should i try an stick to and what would you all pay for each year. i knowthis varies and is pretty direct question but i just want to know wat you all would pay or walk away from. one last thing is the 4.0 that big of a deal like i def want it but for instance if one i found for a good price i was willing to pay but only had the 3.0, wouild this be a reason not tpo get it. basically would you only buy the 4.0. and with me lookin for supercab 4x4 i think i def atleast need the 3.0 motor. thanks Zach

wow...i'm exhausted just reading all that mumbo jumbo. you really should do your own research because asking others what styles, years, engine sizes of rangers are the best will guarrantee you lots of different replies and will just make you even more confused.

Ford Changed the 4.0 engine in 2001. IMHO, the 4.0 is far superior to the 3.0 in regards to performance. If you're really unsure, test drive both engines and see if you're content with the slower performance.

I would say get a 2001+ 4.0. Also just FYI, not all extended cabs are created equally, there is a 2-door version and a 4-door version (2 full doors + 2 suicide doors).

There are so many variables in vehicle pricing, no one can possibly give you a pricing breakdown like what you're asking for. Your best bet is to figure out what you want, then start searching the classifieds (craigslist, autotrader, etc.) and find what the going advertised rate is.
