Ridgeline is not a hardcore truck more of utility truck unibody frame instead of traditional body on frame.
My budget is about N1.2m excluding shipping and duty.
I think the duty on pickup is lower than SUV and it will always be a money making vehicle throughout it service life.

A F150 will be my last resort in trucks my preference is a I5 Vortec Canyon or Colorado. Rangers didn't have a lot of crew cab and Frontier is not as common in that configuration.
If I go SUV it will be either XC90(04-06) or Grand Cherokee (07-09)

Anyone in the house please give an estimate of duty on SUV compared to a truck

Because Toyota is the favorite of all insurgency around the world the price of a used one is ridiculously high right now

Frontier will be the cheapest. It's also ridiculously reliable.

A 4 cyl engine Nissan crew cab will be ideal for Nigerian no need for power, but 4x4 needs a V6. The 4.0 engine of that era had problem with the transmission fluid mixing with radiator fluid.

A sport Trac will be fine too but it is rarer now, but market is full of F150 if duty is the same I will get F150. 5.4 engine of that generationhas problem with spark plugs but it is still the best work horse

The D22 97-04 never had the 4.0V6 but had only 3.3V6 and 2.4 i4 even the D40 that had the 4.0 is a formidable off-road vehicle which has been tested in my presence I just waved it off because the D22 seems easier to upgrade and love-vendor than the D40 besides a bypass for the D40 would solve your problem forever or simply buy 08 upwards with updated radiator components from factory.

The sport Trac is just an explorer in pickup form may be rare but parts aren't since it's same with explorer which is common and available on Nigerian roads.
