I did talk to the dealer and they said they would do $7,500. Rangers have a reputation of lasting long so i figured 111,xxx wasn't too bad.

If I got 4 or so years out of it I would be really happy. I think it could last longer than that though.

Definitely go for the 4.0! way better engine. and you can always lift it yourself for less than the difference in price of the 2

I don't like either. I would say the 4.0 since lifting is easier than upgrading an engine but I don't like the mileage so I say keep looking
