Default Need some help deciding what to do! H-E-L-P

Let me start off saying I have to travel at least 500 miles a week and I am needing something better on gas.

At the moment I am driving a 1990 Ford Bronco (4.9L, 5 spd manual) and it's kinda ok on gas but I need something better.

I still have my 1985 Ford Ranger 4x4 (2.3L FI, 5 spd manual) but a bad spark plug cause my 2 number cylinder to now have oil in it and the body needs alot of work.

I have a 78 Ford Courier 4x4 but it needs restoration

I am also rebuilding my 466 in my 1979 F150 4X4 so this will be my toy on the side.





Right now I am hearing gas prices are going up and will possibly hit $5/gallon by this summer

I am needing something that will be great on gas mileage and it needs to be a truck. I really do need 4x4 to be on it since I work in the woods.


So, I don't know what to do and what to get.

Any ideas?
