Default Craigslist ranger is this good deal?

http://dayton.craigslist.org/cto/2457595369.html I'm going to look at this truck soon and was gonna trade my ford probe GT automatic for it which is in good shape but honestly i miss having a truck i really wanted an extended cab ranger but can't find any around here under $3000 and if there is one its got too many miles on it. I will either trade the car to him and have him pay me 100 bucks difference. would that be a good deal?

he says the ranger is just the base model no AC or abs but has power steering. my last ranger had the 3.0L engine what should i look for in this cause it has the 2.3L i assume what should i look for when looking at the engine because i don't know my way around the 2.3L engine so to speak :P

----------

ok guys the sonoma guy just offered me money and the trade i think i'll go look at it cause if i could get 500 or 600 out of him thats money in the bank and a small sacrifice to make for a lowered truck

----------

http://dayton.craigslist.org/cto/2459992143.html heres the truck 140k miles

----------

HOLY SH*T he knew my name wtf

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 have the window down and listen for any noise/squeeks the suspension makes when going over speedbumps and stuff.

He didnt say what motor it has. hmmmm
