Default Tell me what ya think...

Ok well i have been kicking around the ideal of selling my Ranger. I want to find an older 4x4 ranger that I can make in to a great dd and play truck..


I dont know what it may be worth tho so tell me what ya think i should ask for it if i happen to sell it..

It is a 1998 xlt ext cab 2 wd with 126000 All of the miles are highway miles. I repaired the head gasket and had the heads checked out at around 98000 I also had the tranny rebuilt right around the same time. It will have new tires or new rims and tires on it before i decide to sell it. We replaced both leaf springs and the hangers on one side the other was still good. It has a bunch of new parts in it already. Will also have 2006 ranger mirrors on it..

The truck has explorer power leather buckets and will have the center console before i sell it also(may keep these tho for the next ranger). The interior is clean same with the outside. It does have a few dings and a tiny tiny bit of rust under one door but it is just surface rust. Paint shines up like new when it is all clay bar and waxed which it will be getting here soon in the next month or so. The windows are all tinted. It also has a bed liner and a bed cover..

These arnt the best pics it was dirty in these...








So tell me what ya guys think it is worth...

If I were looking for that truck I would be a buyer at 2,500-2,800. I would look away tho once I found out it is the 3.0. Thats just my honest opinion.

Well, it doesn't LOOK ready to sell. Bathisize the crap out of it. Get some matching tires. Make sure everything works. 126,000 is low. If it has little or no rust specify that in your listing. Mention the head gasket repair. I would like to know that you have taken care of problems.

If you want the max $$ advertise it outside of the U.P. as well.

Enter all the info and check private party sale. You'll see an accurate value and you can go from there.

I think NADA gives a better value estimate than KBB.

But if your looking to sell it, you really need to make it look nice, pull those window stickers off, put on some new tires on matching rims and get it really clean inside and out. You want to make a good first impression to buyers.

I say it is worth around $2,100 to $2,500 max. The surface rust underneath the door will create a problem selling it.
