Default Think I'll sell my truck

And just get a 78 or 79 Bronco Ranger XLT. I'm wanting to actually do something like this:

Which makes a pretty bad assed rig. The other one I am considering is a 77 F150 Ranger.

The wife and I were looking at how much it'll take to fix up my 2000 Ranger and I think my buck will go a bit further with one of these. They're easy to redneck lift, already come with a Ford 9" and Dana44, and I just like that old look dang it!!

Hoping to make it much better than stock!

Default Re: Think I'll sell my truck

Yeah, mmmm I want some fun in that rig!! Just listed my truck on C list, $4000 for it, although I know that's a tad high LOL. Gotta squeeze as much as I can out of it, and people love to dicker anyhow.

Looked at a Red 78 Ranger stepside today, jacked the hell up and sitting on 40x17.50 Gumbos. The guy wanted 7 grand for it. But, the origional wood bed was rotted out with blatantly large holes, the interior had orange shag carpet, and a knitted blanket over the seat LOL. It was all tore up. BUT, the engine ran strong. I asked what they'd take for it, they said as low as 5800. I showed them all I needed to fix and said they're out of their mind. The tires would cost 800 a pop and only had 4 months tread left. They said they'd take my Ranger, cash up front, and 150/month payments LOL. Fuck that!

So, I'll see what I can get cash out of my truck and go that route.

thats true, when we sold my girlfriend's cavalier I wanted $3500 for it, so I put $3500 on the for sale sign. and i thought about it for a little bit and I decided to put $4000 on the sign but when I changed it, it looked like I originally had $4500 on it. The guy stopped and wanted to buy it and said "will you take $3500 for it?" and I said "...uhhhh... yeaahhh I guess" lol

Yeah, it's what I'm hoping to do with it lol. Someone called today and wanted to trade me a Honda Civic for it lol. I didn't bother calling him back. I understand him trying, no big deal. But, I never put in the add that I was willing to trade for everything under the sun.

My buddy says he used to have a 79 Bronco, and he squeezed 38's on there with some fender chopping. Likely I'll do the same unless it's already done to the truck.
