Really the only downside to this is I can't drive the Jeep around town. I may just keep the setup I have though.

I'm gonna vote for the Tacoma. I had a '07 access cab with a 2.5" OME and 33's. The thing was a blast to wheel and drive, and averaged 19.5 MPG with the tires. It had a ton of power, and towed well. I sold it with 210K on the clock. I wouldn't hesitate to own another.

Newer mid-size trucks have capabilities surpassing that of older full-size half-tons. If you're convinced an American vehicle is what you want, you have the Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon, Dodge Dakota (can get a 4.7L V8), or a Ford Ranger. They're comparable to the Tacoma, except not as good in all categories. Less ground clearance, power/weight, efficiency.

Tacoma's rock.

There are F-150's sold here in America that were built in Canada. Do you consider them Canadian trucks or American trucks?

Id consider them American trucks as its an American company unlike those rice burner trucks which may be built here but their still foreign trucks .

A lot of Toyotas are more American made than most domestic brands like Ford or GM. Ford is getting better but tacomas are always going to be the best small pick up on the market.
