FS: The Rock Solid SVT Ranger, TN

Team Willys

Chattanooga, TN
Ok guys, unfortunately things have changed in my life and I got to the point where the ranger just wasn’t cutting it any more. I love the truck, it is a great daily driver and weekend warrior that could conquer pretty much anything I threw at it. However, since I own my own business that requires me to tow and haul all of the time, I really needed something bigger. I bought a ¾ ton truck and so its time for the Ranger to move on too. This truck is my baby, I daily drove it everywhere for almost 3 years and it has never let me down. It is hands down one of the most factory appearing modded trucks, meaning that all mods were done on a level that could pass as a factory option. I have so much time and effort (and a TON of money) in this truck to make it what it is that I really hate to see it go, but I simply cannot afford to have 2 trucks right now. Everything works as it should, and it is a very comfortable driver. I wouldn’t hesitate to hop in it and drive it across the country right now. The truck was just given a complete going over and was thoroughly detailed, so detailed that the seats were even removed and the carpet was shampooed. Truck was recently serviced with new fluids and all steering components are new too. Unfortunately I am going to lose my butt money wise on this truck, it is super nice, but in the end I understand that it is still a 96 Ranger. However, you can’t build this truck for twice my asking price, so whoever gets it will be getting a steal on it. Check out the long list of specs below, and keep in mind that none of this stuff is hacked, it is all professionally done and it all appears factory. Because of this, my asking price is $9,299. This is a steal on this truck, but price may be somewhat negotiable. No Trades except for maybe Mustang Cobra Parts plus cash. I’m going to leave on the forums for about a week and a half. If it doesn’t sell or I don’t get any serious bites by then it will be going on eBay on Monday, June 20th. I need it gone.

The Bad:
Sometimes it will throw a DTC (diagnostic trouble code) for a large EVAP leak. I have spent a little time looking for it, but it didn’t really bother me enough to fool with it anymore. That is the only DTC it has ever thrown for me. Also, the truck does not have Catalytic converters, but the computer will not throw codes for that so it will pass a computer test. To completely eliminate the EVAP issue I was going to have a new chip burned for the computer (only about $200) and have that function deleted. Also, this truck used to pull double duty for me, as my Daily Driver and a mild wheeler, so it does have a few dents and dings and a few scratches but nothing major at all. The driver’s door has a small dent, and there are a few small dents in the bed and one in the tailgate, but none of them are bad at all. They are not really even visible from 10 ft away, and are hard to see in the pictures but I just want to try and disclose all info as best as I can. Other than that there is nothing wrong with this truck!
