Default New to Rangers and looking for a truck

Hey guys,

My name is Robbie and I'm a big subaru guy and have owned 6 but am looking to get into a Ranger. I want to spend between 2 and 3k so I'm looking at 93' to 97' models but if I can find a 98+ in my price range than I'd go that route. Most likely 2wd, regular cab but anything bigger is always better.

I was wondering if you guys, being experienced with Rangers, could help me determine what kind of truck to buy. I was hoping you could give me some insight on what years have the most problems, things to look for when looking at rangers, any motors or trans to stay away from, stuff to look out for? Stuff like that. I know nothing about rangers and am worried about buying a piece of crap that is going to make my life hell.

Any help to fill me in on what makes a good ranger and what to look out for would be a great help!

Robbie

Thanks in advacne!!!

Thanks guys. Ya I'd love to keep my scooby but I need to sell it to help pay for the truck. We just bought my wife an '09 Legacy so I'll still have one.
