Runs and drives fine
Needs front end (i was gunna do an 01+ swap)
New rear end (They have one at my yard was there today)

For the work that needs and considering its 12 years old, I would say 1k or less.

I bought my truck wrecked that's why i wanted another to work on. This one will take more time but i think i can make it happen. My yard just got a 99 4x4 off road 5 speed in untouched i could use the parts off of that and the guy gives me great deals...but its red

I know it needs a whole new front end and body parts but they aren't hard to get a hold of

i dunno if you really want a wrecked ranger to fix up then this might be a good one for u. if you realllly want it i'd give up to say about 750ish but anything beyond that is just too much...

I would pay no more than $500 bucks for that. Have you really driven it or does the guy just say it runs and drives fine?

Yeah, I agree with this.

How can it run and drive fine with a snapped rear axle? I'm not a certified mechanic, but I'm connecting the dots and its looking like a shitty deal.

I would dodge this bullet and keep looking.
