I've got an aging full size truck that I use for scrounging and trips to the dump, etc., and a '93 honda civic I use as my everyday ride and it's got 200k on it. I'm going to milk both for all they're worth, but looking ahead I'd like to replace both with just one vehicle. I'm just wondering if it makes sense to get a 4 cyl. Tacoma or something to handle any scrounging opportunities (which would probably only add up to 5-10 days a year), and still get decent mpg, or am I fooling myself and should I make sure to just get at least a V6 vehicle to make sure it can handle the loads? I know there are a few folks out there with some smaller vehicles that use them for hauling, what do you guys think?
