Get a mid 90's Tacoma for cheap pay it off and once you out grow it buy a bigger truck. The toyota will last you a long time so don't get rid of it.

you obviously should get a Chevy F-250 with the Cummins diesel engine, but make sure you get the one with Allison transmission. but whatever truck you do go with, make sure it's headlight fluid has been changed at least one in it's life.
