different truck, same dealer, same idiotic pricing.





I would just pay attention to how 'tight' the truck as a whole feels, let go of the wheel while driving to see how it tracks, and also listen for any noise the suspension makes when going over speedbumps and stuff.

He didnt say what motor it has. hmmmm
ok what about with making sure the clutch is good

----------

I'm gonna haft to do something about those rims any suggestions?

thats what im saying, i don tknow what to look for when just driving it. My original clutch finally got replaced at 130,000 miles and the only way I found out how worn it was was by taking it to the shop where i found out the friction disc was worn almost 100% along with a bad pilot bearing


here I found this from another website:
"Normally, a worn clutch manifests itself as slippage. Simply put: you gas it, but the car revs more and goes less than what you've been used to. Feels like there's a sort of spin-up that's necessary before the car accelerates. "

signs such as grinding and an obvious friction where you have to force it in gear

took me 4 months to find the perfect ranger in my price range.

Also trading will get you almost nowhere cause in todays world ppl want the green stuff

this sucks i rreally want a ranger but all the extended cabs around here are $2500 and up i got a friend who will buy my car for 1700 or 1800 or trade his sonoma but i dont want that truck. he said he knows a guy with a ranger that wants his sonoma but wants 250 cash with the trade so he's gonna contact him so i can check out the ranger. but if that doesn't work out i am in the dark because craigslist doesnt have anything really good prices are just too high..
