What you want would probably run you at least $15K.

Rangers have a crappy resale value so why not just get a 4x4 Ranger with low mileage? Shouldn't be that hard to find one within your budget. Unless of course you actually need a full size truck.

i have had a few diesel and they are way to expensive to drive... fuel filters and 15qt oil change. and my 6x10 trailer with a 700 pound fourwheeler thats all i pull. so i dont really need something that can pull alot. and the only reason i want a full size to to be able to haul more stuff in the bed. because the ranger dont like pulling that trailer up a kind rough hill to go ridin. with like a few hunded pounds in the back

There's always a reason for extremely low prices. And an exhaust leak wouldn't be a good enough reason for me. Did it have a lot of miles?
