Rangers are pretty solid and cheap to maintain. Avoid the SOHC 4.0 until 2002, I think that motor had a lot of issues.

Both the 2.3 and the 4.0 V6 are extremely reliable otherwise. Both are slow, if you're hauling I'd get the 4.0

I have a '95 with a 4.0 V6. It runs well but it's not enjoyable to drive by any means.

I think in due time I will switch it out for a Nissan Titan. Those trucks seem to be pretty good value and fairly reliable also.

When I was shopping around looked at older Toyota trucks but they are extremely beat up. If they aren't, they are incredibly expensive.

can also look for a cheap mazda 3 hatchback, flip the seat down and load that baby up. not quite as easy as a pickup, but for bags of mulch and soil, you don't really need the length of a truck bed - and you can lock stuff up easier
