Two different trucks for different applications.
What Ranger variant are we supposed to vote for against the X-Runner. This poll makes no sense. The current Ford Ranger does not compare to the X-Runner. I would say a Ford Lightning, or an SVO F-150 would be closer to compare if Ford makes such a beast now.
I had a 2002 2wd Tacoma I put 94k on the odo, but got an older Toyota 4x4 which suited my purpose for offroad capability.
I got an 08 Ranger Supercab FX4 because I could not afford a new 4x4 Tacoma. I got the Supercab because of the blind 4 doors and it meets my current needs.
Other than the leaky windshield that was taken care under warranty, I cannot complain about my Ranger, even though I am a Toyota man.
If I want speed, I would get a sports car, not a truck.
