Thinkin about a new Truck
Posted 27 November 2012 - 08:22 AM
My previous truck was a 3/4 ton GMC extended cab with a 6 1/2 ft bed. That was more reasonable. I was thinking of another 3/4 ton 6 1/2 ft bed but in a crewcab, but also considering a 8ft crewcab. My dilemma is that I drive it as a commuter to work and around town. I'm just not sure I want to drive that long a truck everyday in the city.
Anyone drive a crewcab longbed in the city everyday? What do you think?

Driving in heavy traffic can also be a pain as trying to change lanes is a challenge here in So. Cal - Aholes see you want to change lanes so they speed up to block you out. One reason I rarely use turn signals...
Having a full size truck is awesome though for long trips, moving stuff or trips to the dump, but still I'll be looking to pick up the new Ford C-Max later this year for my commutes. $150 a week in fuel is getting really old.

My current truck (you've seen it Chuck) is the same length as yours. In the 1/2 tons the Crew Cab and the Ex Cab are the same length bumper to bumper, the difference is in the bed.
I wouldnt mind having your truck to replace the wife's Ex Cab.
If I was buying a new truck it would be a 3/4 ton Crew Cab 6' bed 4x4 Diesel.
try this for a daily driver haha

I love the truck; she rides like a Mercedes,
Sometimes I have problems with her length, and u turns, and I wish I would have bought a diesel,
But there is plenty of room for friends, and dogs

You will also get a better ride out of that longer bed too
