So….. I think I have developed a love/hate relationship with Facebook marketplace.
I found what I consider to be a real gem.
looking thru the listings I found a 1996 ranger STX 4x4 with an automatic transmission and a manual transfer case but has all other power options minus seats.
It’s a one owner truck with only 96k miles on it and it runs and drives beautifully! I couldn’t pass it up so I added another truck to my collection lol got it for a steal!
Will get better pics!
Only thing it needs is a rear bumper and door lock rod clips that lock it in place.
I drove it home 1.5 hours and I tell ya…. This thing is a sweet ride!

That classic gold color makes me swoon, especially with a floor shift T case, and the cool retro STX stickers. Nice find I’d have had a hard time not snagging it!

Ya man I’ve got a few rangers, but this one has won my heart…. I have owned one in the past, but it was a 94 and was kind of run into the ground. This one is almost cherry!

I have, I have them in grey in my '90 and in blue in the shop ready to go in once I get there :). I've never seen them in a Ranger though from the factory, I imagine they were an option but even power windows isn't common... Looks like it even has pop out rear windows, I have those to put in my '97, one of these days...

Man I had a 93 that same color. It was an XL 4x4 so no where near that nice. But that color hides mud real nice haha. Great score man.

Nice. Here that'd be 4-6 thousand on marketplace. From an individual. I saw a dealer had one posted a couple days ago asking 11...
