Thread: Whatís the best pickup truck to buy?

    Default Whatís the best pickup truck to buy?

    Iím thinking: crewcab, 8í box, 4x4, blue...

    Are gun racks legal (not for guns, I might just mount a couple pieces of pipeline on them).

    The Toyota Tundra is ranked the most reliable in 2019.

    It also comes in a hybrid assuming you care about our environment at all.

    I love my Tacoma. No gun rack though. It gets decent

    If you want a crew Cab and an 8' box.....wait a minute...

    I sense a disturbance in the KC sarcasm force.

    Why? A crew Cab and an 8' box is available. My friend has a Dodge Ram 2500 as a crew cab and it handles full sheets of plywood with the tailgate closed.

    If you want adults to be able to fit in the backseat comfortably you will want to go with the crew cab, versus the narrower double cab (or whatever each brand is calling theirs).

    8' box makes it great for hauling a lot of stuff, but need to be aware that you are also then making your truck that much longer for maneuvering, parking, etc.

    And you would also really want to consider what you want to haul in there - just because you have the length in the truck doesn't mean it can handle the weight without aftermarket leaf kits or going from a half-ton to a three-quarter...

    Should be able to get a pair of truck nuts thrown in for free this morning. Jump in on the euphoria while it lasts.

    This was certainly my take. But the vote counting might take awhile..

    Yes, I should have mentioned the plywood criteria for the coming building boom.

    Actually that is one of my main criteria on my next vehicle if it’s a big SUV. Loved my Odyssey for that reason. Unfortunately I had to pull out the spare in my old Ford Excursion in order to lay plywood flat.
