I personally do not like rangers but that is me. Larger trucks will generally cost more then the smaller ones. But if you can get one and that works for this and future uses like as a wood truck great.
You do understand that he is driving to georgia, right? mountains and stuff? Good luck towing 1k lbs through hills and freeway speeds with a 2.2 or a 2.5

It's not the weight, it's the location of the weight and awkwardness of it
