Here's the situation - I own 2 nissan sentra commuter cars and 1 k-5. We are just finishing up building our house and still have a ton of landscaping and other work left to do (finish basement, build deck - etc). I'm almost convinced to sell the blazer and buy a small truck (nissan, toy, ford whatever). I'm going to need a trailer or a truck to haul stuff around with - and I'm sick of 10-14 mpg out of the blazer. Finances are tight and the gas is getting me - I can probably sell the blaze for ~$4,000 and can pick up a pretty nice ranger for $4-5,000. I know I'll miss the blazer but there really isn't much wheeling out here anyway and I can always find another blazer when I move back to the mountains. I just wish I could find something that gets better than 20 mpg and fits a 6'4" 240lb person, and can haul misc junk around. I'm a little worried about room in a Ranger but I just can't really think of too many other options. I'm a little leary of a diesel right now (with diesel a full dollar more per gallon around here ). Anyone driving a ranger or a mazda b-series have any input? Any other ideas?
