    If you are needing to haul things you are better off with the Trucks. The Toyota may be a the best of both ability to haul and off road activities

    The only thing I haul is a dirtbike.

    I am wanting to go off-roading more in one of these. That is why I am leaning Jeep.

    Longevity in the yota. For the few times you'll be off roading, the yota will get you there. The rest is longevity and the jeep ain't even close

    Jeep would be my last choice. They are a bad car and a worse truck. Depends on your use. I have option c. It will last the longest and hold resale value. Option b will be the nicest interior and have the most room and best ride. All will suck on gas mileage.

    Did you ever own a jeep? I haven't. Just road in a few. I hear rust is always a problem with them.

    I like the Toyota's resale, but I am not one that flips cars every few years. This is a purchase I will have 10+ years.

    The Colorado has really good reviews off-road. The Toyota has a long history of performance and durability. I will probably be at off-road parks/trails 1-2 times a month. Which I think as a good bit. So it will get used.

    I’m convinced Toyota pickups will outlast nuclear holocaust

    I don't know if 32 is old millennialhood or young gen x y or z but Jeep has one of the worst records for mechanical problems. Mechanics start planning their vacations when a jeep is towed to their shop.

    The Toyota should be reliable for years and if you want get one with 4wd and an offroad package.
