Best pickup toad Ford or Ram? Yrs?

My wife has a 2013 Wrangler Unlimited she bought new. Its has only been used as a toad a few times I have my own Jeep.
It is her DD she is a school principle.
She asked about trading it for a pickup, so my questions are is one better then the other for making toad ready? ( I might get to use it some as a toad )

Not wanting to go broke over a new one but say 2014 to 2018 or so. We would want the 4dr mid to upper level.
Fuel mileage and comfort important as a DD for her.
Just testing the water here, if we make a move might have a Clean Burgundy Wrangler up for grabs.
Thanks

I think the F150s have to be 2012 or newer otherwise any (Ford, Ram or GM) 4 wheel drive with the right transfer case would work. From what I have read the Ram has the best ride and the Ford the worst. Remember we are talking trucks; they all ride like trucks. When equipped the same, the mileage will be close e.g. the 500HP truck won't do as well as the 250HP; none are going to match a Prius.

Iíve pulled the Ram Longhorn 2010,12,14, and now 2019. I canít imagine anything being easier to hookup and tow. All mine have been air ride so the ride is great. All except the 2019 have had the Ram boxes, but I couldnít get them on the 6&1/2 ft bed for 2019.
Just make sure whatever you get is 4 wheel drive with a transfer case you can put in neutral.
