    im looking to buy a ranger with 166k on it. whats the average life expectancy of these trucks engines? i know they can go on for longer, but would this be worth buying?

    the 3.0L v6 has been known to go 500k.
    our fleet uses a combo of 2.3 and 3.0 rangers, and avg miles on these is 270k with poor maintenance.
    I wouldn't worry about longetivity, it'll hold up just fine.

    My last Ranger had 304K miles on it when I totaled it. It still had the factory brakes on it. I never did anything to that truck but change the oil/filter, change fuel filter and air filter, and rotate the tires.

    I have a 95 v6 4.0 and have over 280k miles on it. It's still running pretty well overall. I think you'll be okay for a good while. Providing you take care of it that is.

    My 2011 has 7000 miles lol.

    How long do the 4.0 SOHC last? It says not to change the oil for 7500 miles so when I do, its either gonna be Mobil 1 full synthetic or Royal Purple

    My 2.3L has 205,000+ on it right now, and runs great.
  12. my 2001 has 167k
  13. My 4.0 just turned over 139k, haven't had too many engine problems. All depends on what you do to the truck

    my '93 has 145,000 on it. still going strong. its well maintained, but i do use it like a truck and i enjoy a little "sporty" driving once in a while.
