    Trying to get a jeep for farm but things have gone crazy. Hard to buy Hilux or Landcruiser at the minute.

    Neighbor has a 06 ford ranger for sale. Around 7000 (big money being asked)

    Anyone had one before?are they reliable or money pit?

    Heard there was a Mazda engine in them.

    Needed for moving animals between land and occasional mart trips but small herd of 15 cows so nothing too hectic

    The Ranger up to 06 was a rebadged Mazda B2500, which was quite slow, shockingly 80s inside, but still a good machine if you’re not bothered about it being car like. Know a few people that had them long term.

    don’t know anything about the newer ones.

    No worries. Thanks for advice. It ended up being sold.

    Going to look at a 08 pajero 3.2 l
