Just remember with any Ford Explorer product, if you need to rent a trailer from U-Haul, the company does not rent out trailers to anyone with an Exporer based vehicle.

I have done this in the past. I actually currently own a 1995 Nissan Pickup SE V6 (it's on its last leg...probably wont pass inspection this year). The last owner actually took great care of it so for its age and the miles it had it was still a great truck. I've been using for about 3 or 4 years now. However, I've had others that are just a nightmare to keep running. Old trucks are also still pricey even ones with very high mileage sometimes.

My parents had the eddy bauer, for a few years, and had quite a lot of problems with it. Last year they bought a brand new explorer sport trac (adrenaline) and could not be any happier. The thing's a beast and real nice. I'd say go with that! They also looked at the chevy Colorado but...it just didn't do it for them.

Nissan doesn't make good trucks. Their cars are nice, but you can't beat north-american trucks IMO.

I'm gonna go drive the Sport Trac tomorrow. That V8 just seems too tempting to pass up!
