Default How Long Will A 94 Ranger Last?

Hey everyone, I was wondering how much longer a 94 Ranger 4L V6 will last if it has 173K miles and looks well taken care of. Is $3200 a good price for a 94 with that millage?

Its impossible for us to know, lots of variables to consider. If it was well cared for it has plenty of life left in it for sure. My abused 93 4.0 had a quarter million miles on it when I sold it and it still ran very well so odds are yours will last also, or it could blow up in 10 miles. Its the luck of the draw.

I agree with him ^^^^^ IMHO the rust issue us the ultimate determination. Did the truck live in the rust belt? is it rusty?

What transmission?

$3,200 seems to high for a 94. Is it 4x4?

I bought the truck from the OO in 8/1/2013 for $900. It had a burnt exhaust valve. I just threw some heads on it(5/1/2014). Ford has many good engines, the 3.0 Vulcan is not one of them. I bought it for the price.

$3200 is fair if its 4x4, if its 2wd that price is high. For comparison my 93 4x4 with really high miles sold for $1800 when I sold it, blue booked for $2800.

Thank you guys
It's a 5 speed manual transmission. Looks like it's been WELL taken care of from the outside. No pics posted for the inside but says it's 9 out of 10 condition. Has a nice Leer topper as well. It is 4X4 with a nice set of tires with lots of tread left and a month old battery. Doesn't look lifted or modified in anyway besides the topper.
Just wasn't sure how many more miles a nice 94 would have left.
I appreciate the help guys!

Nice looking truck but I need the extended cab for more space and possibly jump seats.
I've been looking at either a Ranger or Explorer Sport Trac and this 94 Ranger seems to have everything I want besides high millage. It's a 94 (always wanted a 94), manual, 4X4, extended cab, nice topper that locks, and a 4L V6 engine.

It's worth more than that being a 4x4.

We all have opinions and I respect yours. I just disagree. I buy 8-10 vehicles a year. I would not pay more than $1,500 for that 20 year old truck. But I thought $2,000 for the OP would be fair. I guarantee it needs work. Next thing you know you are into it for 4k.

Not sure where you live but you will not find a 4x4 in decent shape around here for $2000. He'll you can't even buy a stripped down 4 banger 2wd for that around here.
