I'd highly recommend looking for something with a 3.0 or bigger. A 4.0 is the best engine for a Ranger. The 4 cylinder has hardly any power, and doesn't really let you do anything with it. Even the 3.0 Vulcan V6 has a hard time.

Too each his own. I've had a 2.5, 2.9, 3.0 and 4.0 over the years and the only one I've been disappointed with is the 3.0. My 2.5 with 4.10 gears is a peppy little thing for hardly any power and I get 25+mpg. The 4.0 is more fun to drive but nothing wrong with a 4 cylinder.
