I live in the country and fell in love last summer going off-road in my uncle's Land Rover (I guess I'm one of the few people who still use them for such purposes, huh? He sure doesn't), and I want to pick up a 4x4, mid- to late-'90s V6 pickup truck (Chevy S10 or Ranger), as my uncle just about kicked my ass for the stunt (I missed a few corn stalks in the cow catcher before I got back).
I'm thinking of it as my daily driver (not married/no kids, so space isn't an issue w/ and extended cab). Generally, what's cheaper to insure, a car like mine or a truck?
Also, what would you think as a better engine in a Ranger (I'm not going rock crawling or the Baja 1000, just through the woods, but I'll add a winch just in case), the 3L or 4L? any particular years I should shy away from?
