    Good day.

    It would appear to me that the mind is made up to let go of the DC. The question that remains is the price?

    Last week is sold my '09 Ranger 3.0 TDCI 4x2 and i got R150k for it. Yours being 5 year older i would say R100 - R80 sounds about right to me..

    BIIIIG mistake to sell. It's paid, insurance relatively cheap. Running cost will be cheaper than any small car with an instalment. Just my opinion off course.

    Good day to you too, kind sir.... but it does appear as if you might have missed post #33. And the mind was never 'made up' either.

    But thank you in any event for your opinion on the price. You should note though that your's was a diesel. With the current petrol price a 4lit V6 auto might even be less in demand. So, yes, IF I was to sell, I'd probably be happy to get R80K.

    An opinion I value, nonetheless. However, there was not going to be any installment. I was going to buy cash. And once I sold the bakkie I'd probably have put R20K+ back into my account more than I took out... The insurance of the small runabout was going to be about the same as the bakkie's, and the license a helluva lot cheaper.

    The idea was to save on the running costs (including using up a set of 31" MT's) of the Jeep. It's a scary idea, but tyres alone is about R12K a set now. Let's say I need to replace them every 5 years (and I doubt I'll get that), it equates to R200 p/month JUST for tyres.

    You see the reason for my doubts...?? It's still there in the back of my mind. Yet, for the time being, I think we've got a solution to my running costs.

    well the thing is he is going to use the money to buy a small car that has cheaper running cost and insurance so that arguement pretty much goes out the window.

    Why do you not sell both the 4x4's and get a good second hand 4x4 DC like the 3.2 Ranger or one of the other brands.

    I am sure you will kick yourself after the sale - I did and had a lot of flak for the Lady of the House.
    Both the 4x4's you currently run is as thirsty as hell and assurance get you at the end of the month.

    Get a diesel of some kind that that would satisfy both your needs, been there done it.
    Now running a good secondhand 3.2 Ranger (2013) and a Fiesta Ecosport (2016).

    Think again and again, I kicked my back side over and over again before we settled for our current configuration.

    Use to ran a big 4x4 for my wife's daily use, a Toy for weekends and a Corsa 4 door sedan diesel for my daily use.
    Cost me plenty of insurance and fuel.

    Ended up having my wife ruining the Ranger as she did few mileage and me using the Fiesta for work doing a 1000 km a week it ended a better solution.

    Now as retired chap the Fiesta is the run around and the Ranger the toy for 4x4 and towing the BL Kewer.

    Think again and put you calculations down on paper and decide with your brain, not your heart.

    ...

    Danie, I hear you.... but there's a snag or two here.

    I used to do a lot of hiking and outdoor stuff (boating, biking, kloofing, you name it..). After an accident left me a paraplegic, I got the Jeep, as my 4x4 bakkie could not be adapted for my use. The Jeep got me back out and up there where the soul gets air... This Jeep had been what saved my soul. Not that easy to let the brain veto the heart there.

    Apart from that, I launch the boat of the shore when we go skiing. It's not the kind of thing I want to use and lesser (or more expensive to fix) vehicle for. It has gone wrong before, and will probably again...

    I also still often do 4x4 trails. It's the nearest thing to hiking in the mountains I'll ever get to do again.

    And the smile I get every time I drive it... It's not easy to explain. The Jeep is staying.

    We've already got a small('ish) car that the wife uses (and loves), and we use this with longer trips. In fact, I'm driving up to GP and NW with it in two days time, towing a small trailer. I used to use the bakkie for this, but the fuel bill now makes that unwise.

    No, if something has to go, it has to be the D/C bakkie.

    But....

    My OP was posted with all the above in mind, and getting myself a small light thing with the money I'd get for the bakkie. Thankfully, I think we found the solution... (for now). See my post from the 15th.

    In case you need more direction on price.
    4 years ago my dad sold his 2004 Mazda Drifter 2.6 petrol DC, it only had 128K km on the clock, he owned it since new and could only sell it for R85K. At the time Ranger's of the same age sold for the exact same money, the 2.5 diesel for around 20% more than the petrol.
    Back then already, the second hand price of the 2.6's downfall was the fuel price coupled with its thurst,, I can only imagine it's 10x worse these days with our fuel price plus even worse with the 4l v6.
    IMHO you'll look more towards R50K.

    Agreed.... And for R50K it can stay under my awning to be used as and when I need it.
