MAN, you really got me thinking Ryan.....I'm not sure I can do that....there's something to say about the comforts of having all four wheels going when there's even just a little snow out.....I think I have to have 4wd....and not that resale is a big thing for me, but you'll NEVER sell a 2wd in Maine....not for any decent type of money the vehicle is worth anyways.

The 96 is too big (long bed)...want something short, or as short as can be with the extra cab for the boys. I'm going to big on the 95 though and i'll make my cap 8, unless I get emotional and move it up to 9, but that would be about it I think.

Yeah...being in Maine, you're cap probably should be higher than mine. I sometimes forget not everybody around the country has running, driving, straight and rust free 40 year old vehicles sitting around for less than $3k.

When I was doing a lot of ebay'ing, there used to be 'sniping' tools you could use that would hold all your bids until the last 3 seconds...so you wouldn't artificially raise a price, get outbid and essentially bid yourself up.

That's cool Ben...I didn't know that.....if there is such a thing, I still don't know about it.....I do know that for a lot of local stuff, Facebook marketplace seems to be better than ebay and craigslist.....

Seems like FB, Amazon and Google are taking over the world.

I actually love the exposure FB marketplace gets from sharing and the whole friends network thing going on....far more exposure than just someone going on craigslist and looking by themselves.

Looks like a nice truck. Can't help much on pricing- paid (IMO) too much for a '95 Bronco last year. As mentioned before, we forget out here that rust-free examples of those trucks aren't rolling around just about everywhere. Most of them out here are still at work that I see.

re: transmission. It might have a 4EOD trans- they put both in '95. Look for a 20 bolt pan (4EOD) vs. a 14 bolt pan (4R70W). We've had great luck with 4EOD transmissions- over 300K on one, almost 275K on another. The secret, I think, is not to let them shift into O/D until you're doing 60mph plus (OD "off" button is my default mode)., The important thing is it doesn't have the pushbutton 4WD- that was a source of grief.

Not passing Ca emissions might be an issue- depends on what the problem is. Ca is so stringent, it's hard to say.

Good luck in any event.
