I’m so excited! I think I found my toad!!!
This morning, I subscribed to a Ford Ranger forum and got the lo down on the whole 3L versus 4L debate. It turns out that the 3L is NOT less reliable than the 4L. People say it is garbage because it is less powerful. I don’t want a truck-truck. I’m not going to be towing or hauling with this thing. The 3L is the perfect compromise between a car and a pickup and has therefore put the otherwise near perfect rig back in the running.
I just emailed someone in Canmore to ask if he would be agreeable to having Smart Auto Check do an inspection ($200) on his truck tomorrow or Monday. If that comes back positive, we just need to make a deal and I’m buying it! It’s a 1998 Ranger with just over 200,000KM and service history from 100,000KM onward. It has the topper I want with a little extra headroom at the back and, get this, it already has a platform in the back for sleeping on with room underneath for storage.
Please cross all your appendages for me!
