 Maybe it's familiarity, but the cab ergonomics of Toyota trucks, big or small just seem to fit me. I feel awkward and out of place sitting in other brand trucks.

Agreed, look at ergonomics. Which are very subjective. 

 

GM builds a solid truck, that lots of people love and find comfortable. But for whatever reason, my 5-10 170# self can't get comfortable in one.

For long multi-day drives, both Toni and I thought the Ford was very comfortable and rode like a nice car.

Then again, the GMs were also.

I'm definitely gonna check out a Dodge or two soon.

Looking for a new truck as we speak.  I pull on a regular basis 6500#'s.  Having pulled with the 1/2 ton NA gas motors, to make power, they all need high RPM.  I have a 2012 F150 ecoboost and love the motor.  Overall this truck has been trouble free, minus the normal Midwest rust.  For a gas truck, it will be the ecoboost again.  I am also looking at the Duramax as an option and I have a source to get these in crew for under $50K. 

 

From a dog hauling rig, we easily get three medium crates inside the cab of the F150 with the flat floor.  Can get 4, but need to insert the 4th one through the front seats. 

 

Looking at prices, if one wants a truck but does not need the bigger motor in the fords, there are some great deals out there.  F150 Super Crew 4x4 with 2.7 eco for $35K.

You should be good with any brand that is a 3/4 or 1 ton, has an 8 foot box and 4 doors...if you really want a truck.

How about stop salting roads?  Plow with some sand and that's it.  Hate that sh*t.

John Delorian was trying, but his dream got squashed.

That new Honda is not a pickup truck. And we like Honda's, on our 3rd Pilot.

Don't need a 'real truck' anymore. I will settle for a 'not really' truck with a 1/2 ton.

Unless of course one finds its way to making sense...in the real time.

if I had to guess I'd say the EPA is behind it.

I hate it also . i live on a quite street , no cut through , only neighbors , barely driven . Nothing pisses me more than when I look out and see a light coating of snow and then here come the salt trucks , again and again . That crap ruins my vehicles , destroys my concrete driveway and eats my lawn . I'll take my chances driving without it . 

Really , people can't drive in an inch of snow without salt ?    STAY HOME !!!

Especially see more when a mild snow season winds down and the municipality has left over money that has to go . Lets salt and use up that $$$$$ .
