I see where your coming from, but, if you paid 7 grand for yours, it being 8 years old at the time, take into consideration that the one listed has also appreciated in the past 9 years, so I don't think that the price is too out of line.I can see it fetching a premium if it was a 4x4, but being 2 wheel drive, I can't see it being worth more than what I paid (7000) for my 2001 with 52,000 miles, back in about 2009 or so. Remember, that truck is still 18 years old, and vehicles that don't get driven enough can quickly become lemons from sitting too much.
My buddy is learning this as we speak. He's been given a low mileage early 90's GMC dually with a 454 by a family friend. It's great old tow rig, no doubt, but it just keeps failing on him. Last month was the fuel pump. Today was an alternator.. And he hasn't even got to drive it more than a handful of miles..
That Ranger being an 01 model is also a bad year to buy IMO. Since it has 29 miles of timing chains with well-known defective tensioners and guides..
I'm watching the auction, as I suspect many here are. Hopefully it sells via Ebay so we can see a price, but I'm sure the price will be private if it sells for "best offer"
I know a guy who basically traded a 91 GMC S-15, 4-cyl manual power nothing, rotten floor pans, rotten cab mounts, for a 95 Cherokee, lifted, 33s, just needed some exhaust work and rockers.Small pick ups are increasing, both in value and in asking price.
No one makes a "small" pick up anymore, and the medium size like the new Rangers and Colorados are bigger and to get into one around 40 grand.
Smaller Rangers and yes, even Chevy S-10 /GMC in really good condition are getting hard to find, at least for "cheap"
Yup, plenty of them and older Rangers in the "beater" class out there. I was referring to those in nice shape, that you could buy and just drive away and not worry about it crapping out on you . AC works, power accessories, if any, all work, dosen't need brakes, dosen't need body or interior work, ect.I know a guy who basically traded a 91 GMC S-15, 4-cyl manual power nothing, rotten floor pans, rotten cab mounts, for a 95 Cherokee, lifted, 33s, just needed some exhaust work and rockers.
