ddam: Fissile: Gas at near $4 a gallon for a long time now, and this still the most popular vehicle among American farkwits. Unbelievable.What's the cost of an F250? $40k? more? I doubt it's the cost for people that need to keep an eye for MPG due to cost of gas. Also, I'm betting that those F250s get chopped up and shipped to Mexico or Latin America when those trucks are used offroad.
noitsnot: Smeggy Smurf: Jument: Oldiron_79: My v6 150 gets like 22-23 mpg and could like fit your miatta in the bed.Think about what you said for a moment. Why is it better to have a larger vehicle?I'll answer that one. Bigger is better when you have enough people and/or stuff to move around. I don't always have 7 or more people in my van but when I do I'm the only one around that can do it. Not only that but I can move 7 people and tow damned near anything I could possibly want to tow at the same time.Sure it sucks only getting 12/15 mpg. But unlike so many whiners here I can afford it. I can't afford to not be able to transport people and items.No - you need the huge vehicle for protection! You need the giant suburban for Mom and the baby seat - it's armor to compensate for poor driving.
Smeggy Smurf: Plus it makes hippies wet the bed over the damage I'm doing to the planet. Their tears make my dick hard.
studebaker hoch: Oldiron_79 *studebaker hoch: Decent muscle car + removable trailer hitch + tandem axle landscaping trailer = no need for truck in terms of construction tasks in a urban setting.Well for the folks complaining about the ranger being discontinued because they need a bed but not weight capacity a utility trailer pulled behind whatever car you like is probably better than a ranger for thier needs anywaysA landscaping trailer could actually pull a big stack of plywood or sheetrock.The eight-foot truck bed is almost history. Look around. I bet the next 20 trucks you see don't have one./a shiny pickup truck with perfect paint tells the world you don't actually use it like a pickup truck. it's an oversized car.
ddam: oldfarthenry: [www.marax.at image 453x339]2" of snow? BRING IT ON!!No scratches or dents? That truck sees more car washes than trips in the snow/mud.

studebaker hoch: If the truck shows any wear *at all*, it's not a prima-donna garage queen.
