Talking Info PLZ!!!!

Hey guys(and girls)

Im looking at a 99 Ranger XLT 4x4, and it looks pretty good! it has 156xxx miles, 4.0, 5speed. Is their anything that was really wrong with this year? Suspension, electrical, engine stuff? Can u plz give me as much info about them cause all i can find on the internet is the typical specs not acual reviews or comments.

Thanx alot!

P.S. I had a 97 Ranger but gave it to my little sister for her ranch!

If you had a 97 you should now enough about them to make a decision. Its practically the same truck they havnt changed much over the years. I would just make sure the obvious mechanical stuff is in order and if the price is right go for it!

Well, that 99 is gonna have torsion bars, and I think your 97 would've had coil springs...
