The third generation Ford Ranger was first built in 1998 and lasted all the way until 2012. It wasn’t an earth shattering car when new, but it offered a decent tradeoff of usability versus price. Today’s example is both more useable and more expensive, but in a good way- it has a Cummins 4BT, which is a 3.9 liter inline-4 turbo diesel. Find this 2000 Ford Ranger offer for $17,000 near Huntsville, AL via craigslist.

This is a 2000 Ford Ranger with a Cummins 4BT swap. This is a running and driving, take it to work everyday kind of swap. Drives great! No problem driving down the interstate at 70 all day long. Ac and heat work well! This is a ready to drive swap, not a half done project. Clean title in hand. Not in a rush to sell. Located in Toney, AL. I didn’t do the swap, I bought it mostly the way it sits now. Text is the best way to reach me, calls are ok but I may not be able to answer all the time. Asking $17,000.
