bad: (everything I can think of, down to the smallest detail so you know exactly what you are buying)(everything is very minor and does not effect driving at all)

* = will fix if I get what I want for it

*needs inspected (no reason it will not pass)
*check engine light on for bad 02 sensor (does not effect driving at all)
*both outside door handles are broken, (I have the replacements, just have not put them on yet)
cracked windshield, not in line of sight (like that when I bought it, full coverage insurance will fix it for free, i only have liability)
*dent in rear bumper (like that when I bought it, not bad at all, mint one from junkyard is $27)
*needs new e brake cable, (currently disconnected)
*hood release cable needs replaced (10 dollar, 10 minute fix)
center armrest lid is broken and won't stay closed (common problem on rangers, have a bungee cord around it, good one from junkyard is $15)
slight hardly noticeable crease on tailgate that happened when the tailgate fell open with no straps attached and it hit off the rear bumper
*one of the window vent visors is missing

Only rust on the vehicle detailed below (very minor, not noticeable, and has been treated so it will not spread)

minor rust on bottom inside of doors (treated with rust inhibitor, turns it black and makes it stop spreading, not noticeable at all)
treated rust on bottom of tailgate (cut it out, treated it with rust inhibitor, and put a strip of diamond plate over it, looks great and would prob put the diamond plate on it even if it didn't have the rust)

The truck runs and drives like new and is meticulously maintained and detailed. Oil always changed every 3k on the dot. I am a perfectionist and have really taken amazing care of this Ranger. Super clean engine bay, the pics below don't do it justice. Overall in great shape. It is 13 years old and not perfect but probably one of the cleanest 98-00 rangers you will find. This is the smallest ranger they make and is a cool, fun, and sexy little truck to own. Chicks love it. I have 98% of the reciepts for all the work done and parts bought. Including the engine/clutch install. Great vehicle that can haul tons of stuff and still gets 23/27 mpg. I can not think of anything that has not been replaced or will need replaced any time soon. It is basically like a brand new 1998 Ranger. Very little rust that I detailed in the "bad" section above. The bed is fiberglass and will never rust. This is my 5th ranger and 2 of them went over 200k miles and this 4 cylinder lima engine is legendary for doing just that. This thing is a sound investment and will last for years and years to come with little to no maintenance. Not in a hurry to sell so don't lowball me, but I'm open to offers or trades. Will trade for any 5 speed sports car, preferably Honda, but open to anything. Want something of same condition/price, but will take or give cash for the right car. Shoot me an offer. I just made my sister buy a Vtec Honda Prelude and I want to get into another sports car. That is the only reason I am selling. I just finished restoring the truck and need a new project. The truck is in amazing condition for being 13 years old and will sell fast. Come see it in person so you can appreciate how clean it is.
