Simple. NEVER tell them what you want to pay a month. Pick a total price and don't go over it. Aim for less but never settle for higher. Be willing to walk away.

Got my '98 for close to half what they had on the window. We left, and the manager called us when we were half way home.

This is the best advice. Always act unsure if you want to purchase, and like Biker said, don't be afraid to walk away.

if its in good condition i think i'd come home with it lol. My dad said he wanted to help me get my next truck and i agreed but with one condition, he'd let me pay him back. Thats how I got my white one. I paid back $2000 to him over 2 summers

What a shame. Hate to any Ranger go, but a 4th gen. That truck was an inspiration. Hope all works out on finding another one.
