Default Another new guy

Hey guys. Came here looking for Ranger tips, tricks and info as am presently looking for a Ranger for my son's first truck. Hard to find and feel good about in my area so was hoping for some leads here. He's dead set on a Ranger if I can locate one, which at that time this will probably be his home page as he looks to start the dressing process!!

Would probably "prefer" 4x4 but not a deal stopper either way. Not really a big issue on V6 or 4 banger or the automatic vs straight although if going with a 4cyl, would probably like to go with a straight. Have heard there were a few problems with the automatics in the early 2000's models. I'll have to try and stay in in or around the 4-5 grand price range and see what I can get for that amount of $$.

Welcome to FRF, the first place i'd try is a ford dealership to see if any trade-ins are available. Dealerships hate having to deal with cars and trucks passed a certain age, often they'd rather offer a quick deal than to call the vultures (local used car lots).
