Default Checking Intrest on 1996 Ranger 4x4

Alright so this spring or summer, I will be upgrading to a full size truck, and I will devastatingly be getting rid of my ranger So I had it on craigslist last fall and didnt get too many bites at it for $2200. So im just checking for any intrest on here for it. I live just outside of Omaha, Nebraska.

My truck is a 1996 4x4 with the big 4.0 OHV. It has 187,000 and still runs like the day it was made, and still has plenty of power The 4x4 works perfect. Check out my signature for mods. So would any one on here be interested in a couple months or so? I would have to get more than $2000 for it.

Heres a couple pictures of it

Thanks for looking, and for any feedback!

You probably aren't gonna want to hear this, but here's my advice: Keep what you got.

The price of oil is going up, and it seems like it's only going to keep going up. I am kicking myself in the ass right now for having a monster gas tank. Even when the truck is at half a tank, it's a $50 fill. I have to use the truckers pumps at a truck stop to get around the $75 cut off if I am anywhere under 3/4's of a tank. I would keep your Ranger and be happy to fill up the 20 gallon tank then to switch to a full size and fill the 35. Trust me, it's not worth the extra space, IMO.

I think he knows from experience, I mean he does '05 Chev with the 4.8 and he is talking about fuel economy, could you imagine if he had the 5.3 (big slurpage!) If you don't need the space or power, stick with a compact, that's my suggestion.

Yeah I know where your coming from. My dads got a 2500 silverado with a 6.0 and the best he gets is 10 mpg, and he enjoys filling that 38 gallon tank but the vehicle I'm looking at gets around what I get in town gas mileage wise. Also I probably drive 50-100 miles a week so gas shouldn't kill me.
