Ryan borrow a DRW truck and tow you fat girl to Westport and back. You'll change your tune!
I believe you but I think it's best I don't get a taste of the good life. Plus I'd have to buy a rascal to get me to the door from the overflow parking lot.

But for towing a production aluminum rig a dually might not be worth it unless you have other needs. That's all I'm saying.

I'll chime in on this one..Fords suck. They have not built a good diesel truck since ....ever. Chevys are okay when they went to the Allison trans and that Japper aluminum Diesel but still not quite there. Dodge built a 12 valve Cummins diesel that they should bring back and put in all of their trucks, but even the new modern Cummins has 900ft lbs of torque in their RAM 3500. I cannot afford any new truck at $50-$75K for a truck so it does not matter much to me anymore. I have had them all in my youth and now I just drive an old raggedy 1996 Ram 2500, Long bed, 4X4, Extra cab, 5sp manual with an after drive and 280,000 miles on it to pull my 10,000 lb boat plus triple axle trailer to get where I am going. The insurance company says my replacement value if I total my truck is $2,500.00. I guess I am styling. My boat is old, my truck is old, my dog is old, I am old but my wife is young...Yeeeee Haaaaw!...Ap
I love pickup debates!

New trucks are too expensive. I'm keeping my '04 f250 with an '06 engine. 260k milles. $300 a month in maint a year.

Reason I went to one ton is because it is classified as a commercial vehicle and should reduce tab costs. Anybody know for sure???

P.O.S.

Buy a Ford!

Carbon Fiber? Think of the expensive fishing rod; a Knick; the strike aka fish takedown; load it up; then the crack as it fails as you try land the fish.

Drop a tool box into that bed. Unless that bed is thick it will puncture and the cost to repair it will be high. Hours to feather it out, cut the CF Plies, bag the area and then vacuum and cook the area.

Aluminum or steel with a thick rubber Horse mat required for all.
Worked with composites for 28 years and would not like to have it in a truck bed Goatram is correct. Does not like other materials install on top so have to insulate between the two. Not sure how they plan on attaching it to the frame or installing bolts though it

I’ve had GM, Ford, and Dodge in the past. Yeah.........I’ll keep my tundra. GM and Dodge are complete garbage when it comes to “fit and finish”.
Tho, the best truck I’ve owned prior, was a 96 Silverado with the old reliable 350. Put 375k on it with no major issues. Wouldn’t touch a new GM.

If any of them want to impress me, build one that doesn't break down, can haul/carry like a big truck and gets 25 plus miles per gallon when doing so.

I don't care if it looks like a cross between a Pacer and an El Camino and comes with an 8-track player.

My one ton Silverado can power up Snoqualmie Pass fully loaded down passing Prius's left and right while the speedometer goes one way and the fuel gauge goes the other. Don't get me wrong, I love my truck but the past two months I have crisscrossed the state more times than Hillary has said the word "misogyny" and feel like I gave the freakin frackers a Christmas Present.

What is the best mileage you are getting out of your rigs?

That's exactly where I am with my 2010 3500 6.0L Gasoline Silverado. Actually, I only get 15 at 60.
