Would you buy a full sized pickup truck or a small/ mid sized model & if so which on?

Alright I’m purchasing my first car & have settled on a pick up truck. It’ll be my commuter vehicle (60 miles a day) as well as a fun vehicle. I off road, camp, & occasionally pull a sports bike or atv trailer. 4×4 is a must (with the Kansas weather & my hobbies) and all that leaves is the size and cab style. I drove an extended cab Ford Ranger and it was great but I’m looking to upgrade. I’ve narrowed it down to these 2009 models

-Toyota Tacoma Access (Extended) Cab TRD Off Road with the V6 and the 6-Speed Manual

– Chevy Silverado Standard Cab Z-71 V6

My fall back

Chevy Colorado Extended Cab Z71 (no idea on the engine choice)

Standard Cab Toyota Tacoma 4×4 (Manual)

If anyone has input or reviews or just suggestions on other models or trim levels any help is appreciated thank you!.
I forgot to add that! Thank you very much for your imput and yes I have learned to love my Ranger and will prolly turn it into a street trucks (its 2WD)

    I would buy the Silverado, I have allot of friends who really like their Silverados’, but also I would keep the Ford Ranger (I am a Ford person). Whatever you do just don’t buy a Toyota, not a good choice for a truck. -Buy the Silverado- you will not be disappointed
