Default Possibly getting a 96 ranger, got some q's

Alright. So my fiancee is looking at a '96 4.0L ford ranger with 160k and a manual tranny. The car appearance-wise is in great shape, but im wondering if theres any questions I need to ask or things to look for when I look at this truck.

As for the price. Theyre asking 3k, however they are considering a trade for our 96 ford taurus with vulcan engine and 80k. The taurus will need 2 new back tires and im working on cleaning the egr to clear a code hopefully. Also n the trade would be a racing atv, and money to cover the cost of the title transfer. Sound fair? (in a nutshell i give them taurus, and atv and they give me ranger and cash to cover title transfer)

As far as questions...
Whats the towing capacity of the truck (in lbs) from the hitch?

Thanks ahead of time for helping me out.

doesnt sound like a fair trade to me. he would get something with half as many miles as his truck AND an atv. doesnt make sense

Its worth mentioning that the taurus was given to us for free. So we have no investment in the car besides the money spent making it work again (just a radiator cap) and the title tramsfer fee for it. Personally im telling her to try and get them to take just the car and give us like 200 bucks and calling it even.

Yes its a 4x4 4.0 liter 6 cyl with a manual transmission. Ive yet to see it in person to find out its exact shape but from the decription its got "no rust" which seems almost impossible for any car here in pa that is that old.
