Default Help me choose a new truck

So over the next 6 months i'm planning on searching/test driving some pickup trucks because my blazer's problems keep adding up and have a feeling sooner or later it'll quit on me so I want to have a pretty good idea what I want. If the times comes where I can buy a new vehicle, i'll just turn my blazer into a demo machine, wall it off and keep it in the drive way. Now.....i'm not looking at brand new 2014 trucks. But I am set on getting a pickup. Now....I don't want to say i'm not buying it for the audio part. But that is always gonna be in my mind when thinking about it. Of course the safety, gas, ect of it are all in my thoughts too but wanting to get you guys opinions.
Few on my list were ford ranger, toyota tundra, Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, or even finding a chevy s10. Mainly looking at all the extended cabs. Thoughts, opinions? (more on the audio part )

Foreign cars.. rule the car world.

F150 is the best selling truck of all time with the most repeat buyers. (I love my F150)

2006+ Chevy Silverados are way more comfortable than new f150s.. but I doubt I'll ever buy one because my f150 has been more reliable than older Silverados of people I know.

I have an 04 frontier and love it ... of course mine is the supercharged model whoch the 05+ doesnt get .. I came from a lowered generously modified civic to my frontier and honestly the frontier handles well and. Drives good ( I drive it hard lol .. 95+mph is not uncommon) but if your after mpg scrap the frontier .. mine gets mid to upper 15s no matter how or where I drive it .. not what id consider decent mpg from a 3.3 v6
