    Default Ford Ranger

    If anyone comes across a Ford Ranger for sale on Craigslist, from a coworker, the side of the road, or wherever, post it up here. Preferences would be 99+, manual, 4 cylinder, 2wd, low rust, but I realize compromises will need to be made for the right truck. Manual is very highly preferred and $3500 is my current price limit. Lower miles also preferred, but I'm aware they will probably have higher miles.

    You should easily find tons of trucks that meet those criteria... Toughest one is going to be rust. To help with that (rust) I would advise searching SD Craigslists.

    MN cl is pretty sparse right now. If I wanted an auto it wouldn't be a problem, but I've been driving my dad's auto Impreza the last week and I'm going crazy.

    Well, people here may know someone who is selling or is planning on selling one. There are also a lot of Facebook groups and forums that I'm not on that may have listings. Just covering my bases, no need to get snarky.

    Found one and I'm picking it up tomorrow. '98, 3L, 5spd, rwd, ac, cruise, 102k miles, new tires. Old man owned since new. The hole in the front bumper is the ONLY rust on the body and the rear shackles are minty.

    I secretly love these trucks and i want one (buying is a long way off)

    How "fun to drive" can they be made into? (On a scale of say, Camry to Golf)

    Is the 2.3l the duratec from mazda3/focus?

    Do you mind sharing how much you got it for? I'm loosely looking for pretty much the same truck.
