Thumbs up New member with new to me truck.

Hey guys, first post here.

I am been ghosting these forums for about a month which is about how long I have owned my new to me 2008 Ford Ranger super cab xl. It has the 3.0 liter which i have learned from these forums is the 3.slow, however i like the engine. There is just something about an engine that can go 200k with minimal maintenance.

I bought it used from a dealer with under 46k miles on it. I was able to negotiate the price down from 15k and 300 dollars a month payment to 12k and $250 payment with only 500 down. The real kicker is I was also able to get the dealer to make my payments for the first 6 months.
so.. math time... $250 X 6 $1500, which happens to be the exact amount that the financing is going to cost me. So basically I got the truck interest free with 500 bucks down

Enough about that, I look forward to making further posts here.

I think you owned the dealer on that one haha. You might get yelled at for no pictures lol.

The 3.0 will keep going, even when you think its about to die, thats just how it runs lol. The heads are the weak point. I just rebuilt mine because of a broken valve spring, but my truck has ALOT of miles.
