Looking for advice on buying a Ranger

I hope you 'big' boys might have some advise on a li'l truck...

I'm in the market for an ext cab ranger; but funds are tight!

I test drove an 02 Ranger 'Edge' today. has some minor body damage that is messing up the tailgate hinge, so I think its only latching on the driver side.

It drove nice; interior is not total crap. Sounds good, no obvious problems; other than after a short test drive w/o issue, while ideling in the lot it studdered & almost stalled 1-2 times after sitting for like 3-4min.

It has some version of a V6 in it, (I forgot to ask which one), is one preferred over the other?

Anything else to check?

Asking is $3800, is that fair price? Seems most ext cabs from 99+ are at least $4-5k from my craigslist search anyway.

Thanks for any tips on what else to check

Finding a good used Ranger is tough, and when you find one you will pay the price. Since Ford discontinued it, people are not getting rid of them till they are used up. My local dealer has a small blackboard on an easel in the showroom, and for the past several months it's said that used Rangers are wanted, will pay top dollar.
