Default 1997xlt new.

Hey everyone, got my ranger about a week ago, 100xxx on the clock, paid 3 grand for it. love it so far. I dropped the rear by doing the shackle reversal this weekend, loving the way it's sittin now. any suggestions or helpful info on these little trucks would be great. not new to ford but I am new to Rangers. Thanks!

How old are you? 21
What is your job? student, interning as a Hydrological Technician this summer in OKC
Hobbies? Auto mechanics, maps, GIS, GPS, Mini bikes, four/three wheelers, 4x4, off roading.
How long have you owned your truck? 1 week at this point.


What year, package, engine, drivetrain, etc. is it? 97 2.3( I believe), XLT not sure on the trans, haven't looked.
What modifications, if any, have you done to it? rear shackle reversal for drop to level it out.
What modifications, if any, do you plan to do to it? just put cruise control in it and tint the windows for now.
Post some pictures!!!

Nah, thanks though. I got what i wanted and compared to the other rangers out there it was in better shape, had less miles, and cost less. don't know what trucks go for where you are but here people really like their trucks so they don't let them go cheap.

the blue book value of a 1997 ranger xlt 2.3 in excellent condition and 100,000 miles is $1,025. the price for a decent one is $850 and one for a poor condition is $550.
You got ripped off, If I were you, I would take the truck back and get my money back .

KBB value on the truck is $3285 here buddy. maybe they're just not worth anything where you're from. thats private seller in good condition.

Welcome! Your truck is your baby and it's worth what you say it's worth. At the end of the day you are the one driving it
