Default Re: Thinking about trading off the Ranger

I have the 2010 Black XLT and I love it . It is tough to keep clean but it does lok nice after a wash and a wax . I paid around 23K , as I got a decent deal on mine . You can go online and pick out comparable prices from other dealers . 23K is a lot of money to begin with but thats what they are asking and getting . 22.800 is the actual price . An F150 stripped was the same price . I almost bought the F150 but the Ranger had more stuff with ther XLT package . Did nto know about the mazda wheels though ...
Siruis satelite
power windows
door locks
stereo - its ok but I have seen better
cruise
tilt wheel
4 wheel drive
traction control
anti tilt control

Already had it out on the beach in 4 high and it handled really good for a small truck . flat sand , tires down to about 15 to 18 lbs .

ALL electronic under the hood . I mean just about everything ....

yeah these trucks are VERY capable, especially in sand. I usually air down to 18 psi n the sand like you man. But yeah, the SOHC does have quite a bit of electronic stuff. I sure do love my shift on the fly transfercase! you can see my offroad adventures here:

When you get it, take off the running boards first thing! I HATED those things. All they ever did were get my pants legs dirty and took away my clearance.

Going to order the black headlights with matching corner lights. Looking at either the magnaflow or gibson exaust.
