Cole has a good point. And I am not saying that just because I like Fords. The last dealership where I worked had a 97 or 98 (IIRC) Ranger 2.3 w/5spd. for a parts chaser. But the engine was not like the 2.3 that powered so many Ford products for years, I am not sure if they re-designed the 2.3 or if it was a Mazda built engine.I never had time to check it out. All I know is that some days I would make the 20 mile round trip to the nearest Ford dealer or Car Quest in the next town as many as four times, and that little truck would haul axx! I did not baby the thing either and it generally got 25+ mpg. However, it was just a two wheel drive.
One thing to think about, also, if you do decide to go with a four wheel drive of any make, you may want to consider coming to the "flatlands" such as Greensboro, or even somewhere in S.C. as I understand everyone in your area seems to be of the impression that their 4WDs are gold plated. LOL

You got that right! If it runs and has a bed or sorts, its $2,000. 4wd and its $4,000 even with a body that looks like swiss cheese. But if its newer than early 90's, they seem to think its still NEW.
