Default HI

Hey all, i'm looking at a 99 ranger extended cab 4x4 3.0L v-6. I came across your site to look for any specific common problems before I picked it up. It looks like a pretty sturdy little truck with high milage but the trans was rebuilt 15k ago. It was a work truck for a lawn and landscape company. I did some wrenching on my Jeep and am an ok novice iron twirler. I didn't hear or feel too much wrong with it (more than I'd expect from an 11 year old vehicle anyway). I think that maybe ball joints might need replacing in the next few thousand miles but other than that and some fairly minor rust it seems like it's in pretty good shape. Wish me luck!
