Default 2004 Ford Ranger FX4

For sale is my 2004 Ford Ranger FX4. As much as I hate to sell it I need something that gets a little better gas mileage. The truck has 191xxx miles. I am the second owner of the truck. The first owner was a family friend and drove 80 miles daily to and from work for the first 180,000 miles. The majority of the miles are highway miles. The truck is not perfect so here is a list of what is currently wrong with it.

- Engine has a belt squeak. Doesn't need a new belt but the belt does have a squeak. [/I] (Fixed)

- The TP sensor recently went out and just replaced it. Still need to adjust it. (Fixed)

- The Hella lights need to be rewired. Somewhere along the line the wire either shorted or got cut. Haven't really investigated it yet but plan too.
(Fixed)

- It mas a powered sunroof but I believe the motor is dying on it. Doesn't have very much power so I just keep it shut.

- It has a Lund visor but the silicone on the screws is starting to wear off. On super rainy days it will leak a few drops every now and then. the screws need to either be re siliconed or I plan on taking it off and having the holes patched and painted. I have a friend who works in at a body shop and will only charge me for the paint. [/I] (Removing)

- Front right tire is lower on tread then the rest due to a faulty rack and pinion which I replaced. Problem no longer exists with the rack.

- Currently does not have a muffler but I do have a brand new thrush welded muffler along with the tailpipe. If I can find a welder I can weld it back on.

- Driver side fog light is out.

- The LED in the passenger airbag off/on switch burned up and it kicks on an airbag light. Does not affect airbag deployment though, just kicks on a fault code.

- Sway bar is off the truck. I snapped both bolts on the sway bar links but it can easily be put back on. I prefer it off because it rides extremely smoother without it. There is a little body roll but not ridiculous.

- Could use a front end alignment. I plan on getting one regardless if I sell the truck or not.

If I think of any other problems I will update the list.


As far as what I have done to the truck here is a list

- Roll bar with 4 Hella 500's. The roll bar is more or less for cosmetic purposes. If the truck rolled the roll bar wouldn't do anything. The Hellas are still like new and really bright!

- K&N cold air intake

- LED tailgate strip

- Lund visor with cab lights

- BFG Rugged Terrain tires

- Wired for subs and amp

- Aftermarket touchscreen radio

- Kicker door speakers.

If I think of anything else I will add it.

The truck has the 4.0, original engine and transmission. All service has been done and logged by a Ford dealer. The truck has never had any major mechanical issues. Interior is in good shape. It is a little dirty right now but I plan on having it detailed soon. The body is is good shape. Has a couple scratches but nothing major. The body is 99 percent rust free, but living in Michigan there is a small patch of rust visible where the fender flare meets the body. It is about the size of a dime and you really have to look for it. The truck is located in Davison, Michigan. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. I will try to get some pictures of the interior and exterior when i get it cleaned up. Here are a few pictures of it from the past few months.

Looking to get $7,600 out of it, or will entertain trades for a car of equal value.

Going to upload some new pictures later today when I wash it if it doesn't rain but here is a few older ones.

Yes it does. And no it came with the truck when I got it. It looks stock and I thought that it was for the longest time until somebody asked me about it and told me that rangers didn't come with them.

Located the source of the squeak. It was the belt tensioner pulley. Installed a new one and put a fresh belt on. I wont be bumping the thread so unless it says sold it is still available.

Fair price, would be $6500-$7000, not $7600 about $400 over book (excellent condition). Now dont take offense to this, just my opinion, but I know a lot of guys on here will agree most people will not even pay in the fair price range I gave. My 2000 w/134K miles is BB'd at 5100 at fair condition but if I try to sell it I'd bet people would offer as high as $3500 for it

Rangers in my area sell for a little more if they are in good condition (not all rusted out) because in Michigan cars rust so a good ranger are worth a little more up here.

Just a little update on the truck. The TP sensor has been calibrated. Truck runs great again! Also tackled the wiring for the Hellas, the relays were the problem so I am hardwiring them to a switch, just need to get some wire and that will be fixed. Today I put a fresh coat of paint on the fender flares, valence, and roll bar. They all shine like new again. I also took off the step bars and wire wheeled the rust off of them and painted them. They look great now! Here is a few pics from today. Sorry if they are a little blurry.
