Default I'm new here

I currently own a 1994 Ford Ranger 4.0 5 speed with 164,000 miles. I live in Northern NY and the salt in the winters really do a number on the vehicles here. I'm looking forward to reading and learning more information form this forum.

I'm now looking at a 2004 Ford Ranger 4.0 5 speed with 66,000 miles Step side box ext cab. It seems like a really nice truck. I have a few questions regarding this truck that I test drove last week.

When I shifted the truck I could hear a slight (snap) sound when it changed gears. It wasn't a clunking noise but more of a quiet snap. Is this normal in these trucks?

What else should I beware of in looking at a used Ford Ranger?

Looks like a great forum with awesome members!

It's a Ford Ranger 4x4 XLT 4.0 5 speed manual with 66,000 miles.

Is that the right stuff?
