Default If you had to buy a different compact truck what would it be?

Obviously the title asks the question... B series doesn't count as an answer!

nissan. I dont consider the new style tacoma's "compact"

edit: Actually I dont know. I kind of like some clean lifted older Taco's (just dont see them often), but I like the Nissan because they are way more rare around here.

If somebody forced me to buy a different compact truck, I would kick them in the newts and take away their man card.

Default Re: If you had to buy a different compact truck what would it be?

If I had no other choice, I'd go with
a Toyota again. But, as long as the current
Ranger keeps going strong, it stays with me!!
Besides, I don't like the looks of most other trucks around!
To me, they are all fugly! JMO, take it or leave it.
