Default ranger 3.0l question

I am considering getting another ranger. however its a 98 ranger xlt 3.0l 5 speed 4x4 with a new clutch, and it has 211,000 on it.

not sure how long the 3.0l will last and really how much life the motor has got left.

just curious if you guys have any insight for me.

Damn at that many miles it would have a lot to do with its history if you ask me. While I have heard others take their 3L above and beyond that mileage I have to imagine they took very good care of it and were familiar with its history. The price, and overall condition I think would need to be weighed as well because if its a good deal it might be worth it.
