Depends on if you want to be [i]shift less[/i] or not. Also, do you feel like you might need the bigger engine?

Def go with the 6 cyl. Had one loved it and the 4 just does not have the power.

i would go for the 84, it might even survive the emp of a nearby (but not too close) nuke.

I have a 89 4 cyn that I bought new. It has 151K miles on it and keeps on going. I did get stuck on the boat ramp once with it though. I pull the boat with a F250 powerstroke now. But for moderate duty the ranger is hard to beat. John

Myself, I would check to see the condition of the two vehicles. I would opt for the 4 cly, you won't really notice much of a difference in performance (my friend owns a V6 98 Ranger, I have a 4 cly 2000 Ranger) unless you try to race people and my friend's V6 Ranger gets 16 - 18 miles to the gallon and I get 22 - 24 miles to the gallon. With the conflict in the Middle East going on, it's a matter of time till the gas prices go up.

If the 84 has, and it should, a 2.8L V-6 get it check over good, it was the rangers least reliable engine. I got a 2.9L that started in 86 i think in my 90 STX 4x4 and it has 250K+ now with its 4th owner! The 2.9L are great engines! BrenLover
