Hi Scotty and community, I need a people-mover with a truck bed. Something I can hang a few bikes off the tail gate, throw a kayak on the roof, be comfy in the back seat for a few hours and still park in a tight mall parking lot. I'm looking at the 2007-2010 ford Explorer Sport trac, or a similar year Honda Ridgeline. Are those reliable vehicles, and is there anything else you'd recommend? Frontier, Tacoma or rangers, with 4wd/awd, 2nd row leg room, and short bed, tend to be high mileage beat up work trucks or are just more expensive.

In hindsight, that gen ranger doesnt seem to have a super crew variant. That's off the list. :(

The explorers are garbage and the ridgeline bodies crack and can become dangerous I'd go with a ranger that has a back seat
