I'd pick the Suburban. It's enclosed and will carry more. You could end up sleeping in it in a storm or somewhere you can't put up your tent. You can carry more people. The ranger is really just a two person truck for long trips. I've had two and loved them, but never carried more than one person or dog. THe other car has a knocking engine and I prefer my excitement to be the camping not the breakdowns on the road. Good luck.
I agree. having one, they are large roomy (for a car) and totaly enclosed.
