I just bought a 1988 Ford Ranger that has all of those features! 2.3L engine, 4X4, 5 speed tranny. Now, it does need some paint and interior work. But still, I think I will only have about $2500 into it when I get it fixed up.

My common sense for my daughter (same age/situation - different gender)dictates something reliable that won't leave her stranded (like a Toyota), not as big an issue for guys maybe?

She started out in a '96 Subaru with 280,000 miles but for the college commute we needed something newer and with airbags for my peace of mind...

With my experience with Toyotas I'd have to say a Toyota pickup. But my experience with the 1st gen Dodge Cummins is equally loyal. If he wants a diesel that will do but they are getting rare and pricey.
