I wouldn't buy an ex-rental 4X4 truck or SUV, based on my personal experience as a renter.

My father in law had a 1952 MG TD. What a great car to drive. Everyone has to look at it. But he spent all weekend every weekend working on it. And the gas and clutch and brake pedals are way too close together.

My F-350 was a 2 year lease return, and I got a great deal on it. Most dealerships will warranty their lease returns, and if they think they are now worthy of doing so, they send them to auction, where you do have to be cautious. The odometer was only at 122km, and the truck has been running just great. There were a few more hours on it than one would think for that distance, indicating it had idled a bit, but it was not that bad, and idling does not put much war on them.

Our 2014 Nissan Frontier was a corporate lease return after 6 months. They put 18k on it, which must have been all highway. It now has 36k on it and pulled the 17B and now the 19 with no issues. Too early to tell the longevity, but it has been a great deal so far. Especially, because it was approx $6k lower than any other 2014 in town when I bought it.
