we have a 1998 Ford Ranger, and it, and the Chevy S10 seem to be two of the worst trucks I've ever driven, the Fords are geared to high for practical use, I've gotten ours stuck a number of times on the grass because it's 1st gear is geared so high, in the winter we fill the back with sand bags, and even then leave it parked as much as possible because there is no way you can make it crall out of a ditch like you can with a real truck, I've also driven it thru a few cities rush hour, and you end up riding the clutch the whole time, even with the extended cab the front seat is cramped, and the rear seat is nearly unuseable, our last truck was a 1993 Toyota, and it died (waterpump quit and warped the head, and the clutch needed replacing) at 320,000-ish miles (the odometer died at 309k) the guy who bought it new said he never did any repairs other then tuneups, oil changes, and tires, I've been impressed with all the toyota's I've driven, better gas mileage, drove smoother, hauled more stuff without issue, and were more comfertable to ride in then any other small truck I've been in.
