Hi, I found a ranger on craigslist, and with the pictures it is looking decent. In this craigslist ad https://gainesville.craigslist.org/cto/5742481942.html the owner mentions a cracked transfer case. With it being a 4x4 auto would it be something that I can do in the garage with only a few jacks + stands, engine hoist and a toolbox of nearly every tool avalible or would it be better (cost less than $500) to take it to the nearest ford dealership and have them fix it? I would like to know because I have a little over $3000 saved for my first vehicle and this is the first ranger younger than a '99 that is a 4x4 and in my price range. The poster said something about a dent, which I plan on fixing with a tub of bondo and some color coded spraypaint. Overall would this ranger make a good first truck, eventhough the transfer case will need to be repaired? Thanks for any help in advance.
