Question Whats a good older truck with good gas milage?

I'm going to need a truck, to haul stuff and for a spare vehicle incase my car doesnt start. I'd like to get one that has good gas milage and I know its hard to find one like that.

My budget is going to put me with older trucks from 1996-2005, automatic and I'll only want a Ford, Chevy/GMC or Dodge. I haven't decided on whether it will be a small one or a regular size. I dont need crewcab/extended cab. I'm thinking the smallest engine regular trucks have is a v6 and the little ones a v4. I dont think I'll need 4WD either. A full size sofa wouldn't fit in a small truck bed would it? And I'm not even sure it would fit in a regular size truck bed or shortbed.

Anyone have any suggestions?

My price range would be up to $2500. I know it might not seem possible to get a 2005 for that, but I know a person that can get beat up vehicles (massive hail damage, huge wreck) very cheap. From there I can get someone rather cheap to fix it up, engine wise, it would probably still look like hell on the outside though.

You can easily get a truck for yourself.No need to worry about it.I suggest you should go for Chevy ruck.It gives good mileage and its nice truck.Its having various price range,you will definitely get a nice truck within our price tag.
