next ranger for me?.... maybe

stumbled across this today, a very clean, low milage 2005 2wd ranger. they want nearly 9K for it, but its like new, and with under 18K miles, i guess you could say it is. think i'll drive it tommorow, never drove a duratech 4 cyl, i suppose my 94 would get laughed at as a trade. lol. its a shortbed reg cab, dont know the gear ratio but from what i could tell by research its anywhere from a 3.55/3.73/4.10
from the dealer picture i can tell theyve had it awhile, theres been snow here for a few weeks and theres no snow in the pictures. the only other ranger they have right now is more of what id like but not as good of shape.
heres a link to the dealer page:

Ask if the airbag recall has been implemented.

Very clean! I wouldn't believe the mileage except for the condition it's in.

i ended up passing on it, too much $ and they wouldnt come off the price, sure less than 20K miles, but still a 2005. i did test drive it and wasnt impressed, i figured it would have more performace than it did, my 94 has a curb weight of 3,000 and is much peppier to drive, yes it has 4.10 gears too, but you figure it also is running 235/75/15 tires. that shortbed had nothing on it (where my 94 was running a cap at the time, tools in the back, grille guard-probly another 500# +) the 05 is the newer 2.3 (mazda dohc) supposed to be about 140 hp (my "pinto" 2.3 is 100 hp) the 05 has 225/70/15's running 3.73's just didnt seem to be very quick off the line, i think my 94 would have beat it light-to-light. now yes, alot of other things were better, brakes, tight steering, heater,a/c. but just wasnt what i was expecting powerwise. and since with financing it would have came to almost the orignial purchace price, i just wouldnt pay that. surprizingly i never got any follow up calls, i figured i would, used to be if you talked to a dealer and they got your number they would bug you to death. i jokingly asked for a trade in appriasal on my 94, knowing good and well they wouldnt take it, though i mentioned they had a 2001 edge that the back bumper was about to break off at the frame from rust and mine would indeed pull a trailer. oh well. i did want to see how a newer 2.3 duratech drove. its ok but guess i will stick with my older (and paid for) iron for now.

They never bothered updating the drive trains much, development pretty much froze.
