Default 97 ranger - 4.0 5spd - lifted 9"

Alright guys, thinking about selling my lifted ranger. With another kid on the way its just not practical to have it anymore. We currently have an Expedition and my two Rangers, the deal is I have to have the expedition since I am stay at home dad, I need it to run kids around or whatever. My wife can't drive stick either and wont learn. And it just don't make sense to buy a gas saver car and have 4 vehicles at the house!

So the thing is, I either trade my truck for something like an explorer or an (xj), or sale my truck to buy the wife a gas saver car for going to work and back. Then in the winter I would drive the plow truck she would be back in the expedition.

Anyhow, looking to sell for 4,000 or so. List of mods are on my album page of the '97.

As far as mileage goes, 217k on body/frame, around 60k on motor, 12 on trans, 20k on front clip. Haven't driven the truck in the past two years as I have been driving my plow truck. Truck is 100% sound mechanically. I have over 4k in reciepts.

It does have a cracked windsheild and a few rusty spots, nothing rusted thru.

I would be willing to drive the truck within 300 miles of zip 49442.

This will be the 2nd sadest day of my life when/if the truck sells, 1st was when I had to sell my yz250f.

ps. I'm definately not in a hurry to sell as the baby is not due until july and the wife will be off work for awhile after. But am interested in checking intrest!

I have pics on my albums page, here is one I took the other day. This reflects changes from the album pics. 4x4 Grill. Removal of bull bar, Cooper STT's.



----------

Might I add, would also be willing to trade for an auto ranger. Must be 4.0 4x4 ext cab. Would prefer 98+
