the 4.0 engine is a piece of crap

1995 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab SB
I bought this truck with 122,000 miles on it. It has 137,000 now and it has been nothing but trouble. I have had to replace the midshift bearings twice, the belt tensioner, body bushings and the fuel pump. The head gasket blew several weeks ago. When the engine was in pieces, we saw that one of the pistons had rubbed out gap in the cylinder wall. The motor is now completely useless.
very good looking truck, good suspension, good off road performance
very unreliable, constantly breaking down, easily rusts, electronics are constantly having problems
