Default looking into a ranger, your opinions!

Hey guys, looking to buy a pickup. Had one a couple years ago and looking to get another. The truck Im looking at is a 1991 XL with the 4.0 V6. It has 170,000 miles on it. Just looking for some advice as to if the miles are too high or not and anything else you guys might suggest. Here is the ad for the truck, i talked him down to 2000, good deal? He says he has changed the oil like clockwork and done all regular fluid and filter changes. Any comments are appreciated.

1991 Ford Ranger Ext Cab

i wouldnt just go off his word, ask to test drive it, maybe take it to be looked over. check all the basics. fluid levels should all be good if he serviced the truck on a regular basis.as for the miles i know of many newer rangers with more miles than that. good luck

Have everything checked out before making the deal, but if a truck is serviced well, and taken care of, it will easily last a lot longer.

Said page not found. In my opinion, after owning a 93 3.0v6, 91 (mazda) 4banger and my current 95 4.0v6...The 4.0 is the best ranger Ive had. So you're on the right track with looking at a 4.0....Check the truck out in person, point out everything you can find wrong to get him to lower the price....and buy it

Couldn't agree more. My 95 hasn't come close to sharding on me. It run like a beauty but then again that thing is my baby and I treat better than anything I have ever owned haha.
