I got a steal! Previous owner never

Just purshased from a neighbor. Only 51000 miles. Needs headliner and a paint job but other than that what a deal!! I had to buy it! Never pass up a good deal. I’m gonna paint it, fix the headliner and put a bed liner on it. I could probably sell it but I’m won’t. You can alway use a truck.

Good small truck

My mom had a 97 Ford ranger last for 425000 miles. Hardly any maintenance to it. Finally lost all compression but would still start. It would not give up. I own one now
