At first glance I'll say it might be a good deal, but I'd get more information and punch it in to kelley blue book and ask the owner or maybe run the VIN through carfax.

it all depends on what you want out of the truck...the toyota iv rode in and drove were roomier (mid size truck compared to a true mini) but the rangers were easier to drive (both stick shifts...but the clutch has already been broke in on my truck compared to my stepdads brand new toyota [its clutch aint hydraulic clutch like my ranger so it felt a little funny to me though])

I would look for an extended cab if I was you. You can find one for that same price range and maybe newer

i made the mistake of goin to a reg cab ranger after owning a full size reg cab f150 and theres still a huge difference (i could fit 4 people in my f150 comfortably but i 3 people is barely enough room for me to drive in my ranger)

Like said above, look for extended cab 4X4 in the 4.0L V6. You won't regret it. Please don't get a yota, have u watched the news lately...lol. The ranger is a VERY dependable truck and has the years to prove it.
