2003 Frontier 4x4 s/c VS. 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4x2 XLT

I need help people...
Both of these trucks are exactly the same price. Which should I get?
I need this truck NOT to tow stuff but just to have a bed so I can load up some usual stuff.
Explorer has better gas mileage while frontier is smaller (easier to find parking), frontier looks better inside while explorer looks better outside. Explorer has a very useful back seat while frontier has a useless back seat. Frontier is more reliable but explorer has 100,000 miles power train warranty...

Please help me decide. Thx.

boy oh boy this is a true dilema.
i am going to take a stab at this but i surely hope the guys understand my views on this one.
(NO THROWING STONES AT 351W+ PLEASE)
If those are the only choices i was facing i would go for the s/c 4x4 because a pickup to me is no good with only 2 wd. also the s/c part is an added bonus.
the explorer sports will require that 100,000 mile warranty.

2nd in my own defense i have driven 6 different explorer sports and have not liked driving any of them due to poor ride quality and body roll.
the ford body style is nicer than the frontier in my opinion i will give them that.

i would rather push my Ford than drive your Chevy !

In the end its your money, so its all about what you like the most. But in saying that, thats what your trying to work out. Have you test driven them yet.?

I'd personally go the sporttrac because of the 4X2
