I drove a ''truck'' as you call it, we call them jeeps, as my first vehicle. I really liked, it was nice looking and reasonably fast. It was always smelt of horse though and some of my friends used to hate it but whatever. I crashed it once while fooling around but thanks to the bull bar on the front it had hardly any damage.
I bought a car last year or so and I couldnt imagine driving long distances in the jeep, the car is way more comfortable, much faster and way better mileage.
If you've no reason to have one then I probably wouldnt, it might be a novelty at first but i've found 4WD are never as comfortable and you have about an hour or so everyday.
IF I were to buy one again (and money wasnt a problem), i'd get a isuzu dmax. Most comfortable of the trucks i've been in and it can look really nice with only a few things done to it.
