Default 2002 Ranger Stepside

I'm currently shopping for a used Ranger, preferably black with a 4.0 Liter engine. I've kinda settled on this one.....the price, I'm sure, is high. Since a lot of you guys have a lot more experience dealing with Ranger vehicles (I've got some dealing with Toyota) than I have, what would be a fair and attainable target price?
I've emailed the dealership already and asked for a drive off price. I'm not paying sales tax, since I'm in Florida.

Thoughts and recommendations are most welcome.

I don't know how low they will go. But that seems like a good price for a very nice truck.

Yea, I think so too...This all started with me emailing the dealership about 3 weeks ago asking for pics of the vehicle. I got an email from the same person yesterday, asking if I was still interested. That leads me to believe that the dealership wants to move it. I'm not sure when the '11's hit the street, but that's gotta be a motivator too. At any rate, I'm thinking that I can maybe get it for 8000.00 to 8500.00, but certainly no more than 9000.00.
Sound reasonable?

Looks like a 4-door too. So all and all that price doesn't seem that high considering it's coming from a dealership, I would still definitely negotiate though.

Agreed....nice rigs. I like the stance on the BL one.

Yours is too, but way outta my price range.

I'm in the catbird seat, I ain't gotta do nuthin.
Both my wife's and my vehicles are paid for.
Also, there's another Ranger down in Deland that's close to what I want, but has almost a 100,000 on it. 100,000 isn't such a big issue as it once was, but just sayin.
