I had a truck from 1986 until 2006 (different trucks). I then sold the truck and bought a Hummer H3. Sucked pulling a boat, couldn't see the trailer when the boat was off. Couldn't haul mulch for landscaping. Had to have a rack to haul a deer on. Had to use a dang trailer with a tarp in it. Missed my truck at least 2 times a week. Drove the Hummer for 4 years and said screw it and bought my Tundra.

Haven't missed the Hummer at all.

I had a Tahoe before this truck. I've had this truck about a year and a half, and I miss the Tahoe. Just a smooth ride with lots of inside room. Whenever we travel to my parents or to visit my wife's family... we take her SUV. It isn't as big as a Tahoe, and with me, her, the kid, a 90lb lab, and all the bags/gear for the kid, golf clubs, hunting gear... it gets crowded really quickly. We may add another kid to the rotation in the next year or two, and I think a bigger SUV would be nice.

I have a feeling I'll just put a BakFlip tonneau cover on the truck and suck it up. Maybe I can talk her in to getting rid of hers and getting something bigger, although she hated driving the Tahoe. Oddly enough she likes driving my truck... she likey the Hemi! \:\)

It's kind of funny at work. The guys I go to lunch with a lot all have either SUV's or cars. One has a 4 door Jeep. When it is time to leave we meet outside. 90% of the time they are all standing by my truck for me to drive. They think my Tundra has more room in it than their vehicles.

If you have a trailer then I don't think you will miss it that much .

I had nothing but trucks until 2003. I have been driving the same 2 door Tahoe since. I love my Tahoe, and it's a great vehicle, but I want a 4 door full size Chevy/Gmc so bad I can taste it. I will never be without a truck again. My wife drives a Suburban and loves it.

You know how some people are sports car junkies? I'm that way about trucks. I've had a truck since 1997. A Ford Ranger for 2 yrs, and a Ford F150 after that. My next vehicle will be a truck, it's just a matter of which company. Hopefully I'll always have a truck.

Nyper, I've borrowed my brother's Chevy Tahoe. I liked it, and my wife liked it even more than me. I could see us getting one.

Keep the truck and put a cover on the bed. I just put one from Access Covers on my F250 this weekend. When my kids were little I had a Tacoma and put a camper top on it because of all the baby crap you speak of. I went a month or two without a truck a couple of years ago after I sold the one I had and before I found the one I wanted and I hated it.
