My go to is “interested, but my max is $xxx. Keep me in mind.”$4k won't get you a decent Ranger of that vintage currently. $11k is asking price, there should be a little negotiation (the trick is not to go too low and offend the seller).
that’s if my offer is considerably low and I don’t mind it getting away. It rarely works, but it has worked.
I recently looked at a rat of a truck. I Listed for $15k.Was straight up honest and said the ad looked like a $10k truck. He took it. Got there and I truly thought it was a $5k truck. I haggled with him like a non interested bystander and he dropped asking price to $10k but he didn’t agree on $5k. He may have been right cause the listing was taken down a couple days later.
It really wasn’t a rat, but I’ve never had a diesel so I’m pretty particular about the condition of the engine. I am keeping myself overly critical of these trucks so I don’t get attached. I probably wouldnt hear a rod knock on a diesel cause they are so clattery as it is.
Without any looking up, I want to say 1994.5? That’s when the 24v came out. Has some big improvements. It really is ancient looking. I like it.
Edit: Yep. 93 to 94. Not sure about the relationship between the D series and the 1x00 series and such, but this is one heckuvu update for the 1500.
