and jack up demand/price for those of us who have to have trucks? If I could get away with driving a Corola or Camry, I would.

They like the looks.


Why do people buy a Ferrari or Lamborghini if speed limit is 65 mph ?
Civic and Corolla can also do 65....

That question has been out there for a while.

An irony is that years ago pick-ups could be had for less because they were sparse. Today they're glam and often way more expensive than cars.

In rural regions it was funny to see a slow and dotty old fat guy exiting his glam truck at the diner....pretending he had been a farmer.

Now you see the wives and sissy sons queening about in bling trucks.

But hey, consumerism is what made this country great, isn't it? Our BIGGEST INDUSTRY is advertising I think.

It is because they are suffering from a napoleanic complex.

People buy the things they want, not the things they need. This goes for everything, not just cars/trucks.

And they do it with whatever "leftover money" (or credit) they have after paying their bills.

If you're a marketer and can figure out how to capture this money, you can buy your own private island.

Some buy them for safety. If you have an accident with a car chances are you will be safer in the truck.

I remember the days when a girl wouldn't be caught dead going on a date with a guy in a truck.

I bought this new in 2005, still have it. It has a small BDS lift kit under it, dealer installed. For many years I really enjoyed the added height, you could see everything around you very easily and it was fun to drive. I am now 70 years old with health issues, and the added height is a pain. It's hard to get in and out of and working under the hood without a step ladder is next to impossible. If I get another truck it will be 2 wheel drive and no lift of any kind.
