Just looking for a little truck to screw around with out in the desert....currently have an Isuzu Hombre - its kinda a POS and more and more things keep failing...I'd like to upgrade.

The specimen at hand looks really clean.  
4x4
Auto
4.0 V6
Extended Cab
120k

Only issues I noticed were a whining power steering pump - when I checked the fluid it was a little low.  I've heard whining PS pumps were common, but I am wondering why its low?  
Wouldnt imagine it to be an expensive part.

Anyone with one of these care to chime in?  a ranger variant as well.


Asking 3100

I understand the mileage is supposed to be pretty poor.

$3100 for that truck seems waaaay out of line.

That is alot of $$ for a 15yrs old ford ranger. The power steering may have a leak, and the whining is usually just air in the system (needs bleeding).

Just buy a fucking Ranger. Same thing.  

What is the deal with the Mazda's and the Rangers??  Did Mazda buy the design to use or what??  What is the point of rebadging a ford ranger??

I'm curious, I own a 2004 Ranger BTW

Ford had a share in Mazda back then, but now iirc not anymore.

Mazda is owned by Ford.



The B-series and the Ranger have had some cross-over (in both directions) for some time...

Too much you say?  ...  


After looking at my local Craigslist....I found 98+'s in the 2-3k range...  hmm   Maybe I was pricing out Tacomas too much :)  


It IS really clean though, always an AZ truck, origional owner, etc..   The bad mileage and auto is not exactly what i want, and the PS whine made me worry...  Other than that Its exactly what I'm looking for.  

Any suggestions for a reliable, small truck/SUV around that price?
