I have extensively welded landrover chassis and i would use a mig every time, sure with practice you can "stick" it together, but with a mig you can get good results very soon after picking up the torch, also its easier to fill holes in when you try welding vertically up to get good penetration and go that bit too far
Also its a hell of a lot quicker with a mig, landrover chassis are thin, especially when rusted a bit! mig is more contrallable.
Buy a mig, if you dont you will only end up with a mig and a stick,
I used a stick for years and when i finally bought a MIG i was kicking myself for not buying one 10 years earlier
