Default Looking for a replacement Ranger

My 2007 Ranger Sport was stolen on February 9, 2020 from my California home. It has been recovered in pieces! The 16 year-old unlicensed driver tried to out run a Highway Patrol cruiser. It did not end well for my Ranger. It was totaled when it hit a telephone pole and then rolled over 2 times.

I'm looking for a replacement. Preferably a 2011 super-cab 4X4 with a 4.0 engine. Does anyone out there know of one for sale?

Don J.

My funds were limited. The 2010 has 98,000 miles on it. All of the others I looked at had well over 125,000 miles. I can deal with 98, but 125 was a bit much. My old truck had 161,000. My old truck had a 3.0 engine that was a little lacking in the Pony department, but did okay for me. I pull a 2,000 pound camper. The new truck has the 4.0 engine with the 5-speed automatic transmission. The 2010 also has 4X4. My old truck did not, and I always wanted it. I don't go four-wheeling much, but I do get on some rough roads when Boondocking. Now I've got it. The new one looks like new inside and out. I noticed one small scratch about 2 inches long on the right front finder above the headlight and a small yellow stain on the rug on the passenger's side. Other than that, I can't find any other defects. It has the trailer tow package. Now I just have to install the 7-pin plug for my camper and I'll be ready to go. I can't wait to see the power difference between the 3.0 and 4.0.
