Default Finally found one!!

Hello to everyone here in the FRF. I owned a 2000 ford ranger xlt a few years back and sold it to buy a car (stupid). I loved everything about the truck besides it being 2wd. I soon figured out that a car was not for me so I sold it last fall.
I have been riding my motorcycle all winter trying to save up so I could pay cash for a truck. I live in MS so it's not like I was riding in the snow but it sucked some mornings. I started looking for another ranger a few months back and finally ran across a good deal (I think it was a good deal).
It's a 2000 xlt 4wd ext cab stepside 3.0 v6 and it's light blue color. It has 96k miles on it, which is the same mine had on it when I sold it. The truck is in excellent shape but it had a rough idle. It still had original everything. I just finished installing new plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, IAC valve and I cleaned the MAF sensor. It runs and idles very smooth now.
I ended up giving the owner $4500 cash...did I get a good deal?

Welcome to the forum.

I wouldn't know if its a good deal or not since prices are a lot different here, but what i can say is i know the sacrifice of saving money for a goal like i did for mine, glad it turned out well for you!

I will post some pics tomorrow...it needs a good bath.
I also need to get some 245/25R16 AT tires for it, and the center console needs replacing.

Assuming everything besides the idle was in good shape I'd say you got a good-average deal. Congrats and welcome!

Here she is....I've spent all day detailing the engine and exterior.
The interior detailing and new rubber is happening tomorrow.
The clay really makes the paint shine...not bad for a 10yr old truck.
