Default Auction bought 04 ranger edge

So this was a donation I bought from auction, 158k 4.0L 4x4 ext cab with cap. It was donated because the alternator crapped out. No rot or rust on body or frame. Last owner has just put new tires and A front end alignment. When I got it Home , a new alternator, new shackles and mounts, new shocks (air adjustable in rear) new plugs and wires, and I cleaned the interior. Seafoam treatment in oil/gas/intake and itís like a new truck. It does have a minor shake at idle and accelerating from a stop. The ďtremorĒ audio system was installed by previous owner Also with upgraded sub and amp. All in all I think I did pretty well with it at $750.

The minor shake at idle and take off could be a valve starting burn, its a pain to run a compression test on that engine, but it would give you an idea.

Can't argue over the 750 dollar value for sure.
