Default 89 ford ranger xlt NEED SELLING ADVICE! Vote on my poll!

hello, ive recently posted my truck on craigslist so heres the ad


"Hey guys, ive got n 89 Ford Ranger with 130k+ miles on it up for sale. The truck was my daily driver before i started having problems with the front driver side bearing wearing out, because of this it needs a new hub assembly and spindle which can be purchased for about $50 - $150 in parts, ive got a guy thats parting out a different ranger you can use that will probably hook up everything you need for $50 bucks, just ask.
The GOOD: great truck, i put nearly 2500 in work on it last year and have documentation to prove it. brand new clutch assembly (slave cylinder, plates, etc), new brake lines, head gasket, tune up, engine runs flawlessly, toolbox included, rhino liner, 4x4, manual transmission, fuel efficient, sweet rims! stable at high speeds (before bearing wore down)
The BAD: no key needed to start, no key to lock the doors, ac needs freon, scrapes on side of truck, paint chips, small amount of body work done for rust removal (still havnt painted over but you barley notice it), tires arnt in best condition
The truck is parked out front of dc automotive in grapevine and would need to be towed in order to move it as it does not roll because of the worn bearing, i can make any arrangements necessary in order to get it to you
I love my ranger and hate to sell it but im going to have to part ways with it so i can put some big ol rims on my new suv if your interested email me or call/text at 817 nine one nine 0775, im asking 2000 obo, im a motivated seller so do not hesitate to make me an offer! no scammers, tire kickers, or bs, first come first serve and this beast will go fast! thanks for your time - Drew "


im asking 2000 obo with all these problems that the truck has but my question is would it be worth it to fix the hub assembly + spindle etc to get the thing rolling (evrything elese is mechanically sound)? If i were to put the money in the truck to fix it (about $350 with parts + labor) would i make a lot more than if i was to sell it as is like it is now? Please vote in the poll and or comment as i value yur opinion, thanks!

Hate to say it but for and '89 you would be looking to get $2000 for it if it was working in perfect condition. As it is now I would say maybe you could get a grand out of it. Granted that is just me ans what I would pay for it.

I think you are asking too much even if it was fixed... I would sell it as is and cut your losses
