I vote for a short barrelled bolt rifle in stainless (Rem Model 7 or Ruger Compact or something similar) with a synthetic stock. The synthetic stock isn't really necessary, and neither is stainless (except for ease of maintenance), but you do probably want an easily handled and light rifle. As for the caliber, go for 243 or larger.

And if it's going to be in the truck and bouncing around and getting roughed up a bit, I'll suggest that the Winchester/Ruger style 3 position safety is a bit safer under those use conditions.
