    Hi Forum,

    First post here. Active on forums for other vehicles I own and am looking at a 1992 Ranger.

    Would you kindly share some tips of what to look for and check out on these things?

    Looking around, the price for this specimen seems fair.

    The truck near to me is:
    Regular Cab
    Short Bed
    Sliding rear window
    2.9L V6
    Alloy Wheels
    Blue Int.
    Split Bench
    2 Owner

    Lived in Southern CA its whole life.
    Underside looks pretty clean and rust free.
    Body has light surface rust on scrapes in bed and a couple other places.
    Rubber and glass seem good.
    Some old oil around the rear diff.
    Some more oil whetting the pass. front beam.

    If I pick it up, I'm sure I'll become active here.

    Looks like a really nice truck. I don't know much about the 2.9.mine has the 2.3 4 banger m50d r1 4 speed, check out the transmission very good. but 176000 miles is barely broken in. Mine is one of the best, toughest truck I've ever had. Looks like a really good deal.
