Now there you go being thoughtful and logical It's so much easier to just complain, denigrate and not realize not everyone needs a full sized truck.Sort of.
It all depends on the SIZE or WEIGHT of the load you need hauled. I've owned everything from a 66 Chevy 3/4 ton (C20) (4 speed with granny low), 1970 Chevy C20, 87 Comanche, 95 F250 4x4, 2011 Silverado 4x4. The only thing they did the JT can't is haul extremely heavy loads or pull extreme loads in hills and mountains.
If size matters, I simply hook onto a trailer. If weight matters, same thing - up to the limits of the towing rating.
This will go places my other trucks wouldn't, it turns sharper, fits better in tight spots, maneuvers my trailer well (tight turns, etc. - and the front receiver helps).
It's like telling someone
"if you need a truck you must get a 3/4 ton 4x4 as a half ton 2 wheel drive doesn't count at a truck.
Or you need a 1 ton dually because anything else is wimpy and not a real truck.
how many NEED something bigger or heavier - or do they just have that full-size truck because there wasn't much else out there smaller?
