I've owned three in 15 years.

2008 Ford Ranger SPORT 4dr SuperCab 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
The 4.0 V6 is impressive. Lots of power but they could have improved the fuel economy. I'd rate the pickup of this truck equal to any small V8. I get about 20 mpg highway. I expect a slight increase when the truck bed cover is installed and I do something about the air intake system ( K&N). This pickup replaced a 05 f150, Interior room took a little getting used to but still its not bad. Mine is the Sport version with a 5 speed. It pulls my 18 foot boat without even struggling.
Nice 6 disc stereo with MP3 sap and set up for satellite radio, AC will freeze you out, (good thing) Seats are comfortable, ride is a little rough because of the 4X4 suspension.
A little more interior room would be great. All of these small trucks suffer from the elbow room problem.
