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.

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! \:\)

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.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I've owned 2 Tahoes over the past 13 years. I'm thinking about getting a truck, but still not sure since I've made due without one for so long. There are a few days a year when I really wish I had one. I love my Tahoe, though.

I drive a SUV daily, and have several trailers of varying sizes and capacities, but I don't think I could function without having a 4x4 "farm truck" at home for when it is needed.

I got my first truck in 1979. I am on my 5th one now. I see myself always having a truck. Its just a truck thing with me. When I was a boy, we always had a truck. I still remember my dads first new truck. It was a plain jane white Dodge regular cab, 3 on the tree with a straight six. All vinyl inside. When it got dirty inside, we'd take the water hose to it and in a few minutes it was good as new.
I fell better when I drive my truck, I feel safer in my truck, I just love my truck. It's an evil Ford truck.

Wait they have vehicles besides trucks to drive? I had a sportscar when I was 16 for first car and 5 tickets later I bought a truck and have been in one ever since.
