    Hey y'all,

    I'm Erik, just looking to get my first car and I think I found a good deal on a Ranger. I've been scouring the forum all evening trying to learn about common problems to look for when I go check out the truck tomorrow; there's so much good info on here, I appreciate it!

    Help me out here if you can:

    Ok, I know I'll sound dumb, but I'm looking at this truck tomorrow to possibly get my first car and he says it's a 1998 but the headlights look like a 1997. Which is it? It has leaf springs in the back in another picture, I don't know if that narrows it down.


    It seems like a decent deal, but let me get your opinions on that, too.

    It's a 2.5L, 5 speed
    He says he has receipts for:
    New motor with 80,000
    New trans with <80,000
    New Master/slave cylinders
    New clutch
    New battery
    New inner/outer wheel bearings
    and "some other things he can't remember right now"

    He said it's like a 300,000 mile truck, so I was thinking about swapping out the suspension for new parts so I would have a completely new truck, in essence.
    Does $1600 seem like a good price?

    I think visibility in forums like this is easy, at least to get through to me, because I usually just click "new posts" at the top and browse from there.
