...you contradict yourself. You claim only having a need for a truck every 10-20 years and then say you'll just rent one, then you claim a remodel job. You picking up all the sub-flooring, plywood, studs, 10ft copper and/or pvc, 12-16ft trim base mold, trim, doors, sheetrock in your SUV or that one time you'll need to rent a truck?
Here's the thing, I actually grew up working for my contractor dad and did my own commercial and residential work over the years, and the reason people don't drive SUVs to worksites is that they are useless. So, Weekender Work Guy, go BS someone else with you garbage claims.
You can buy a nice sedan and a full size long bed truck for the price of an Aviator GT and you don't have to live with compromises. That's my point. Keep humping that chicken all you want, you aren't going to convince someone who has actually done and still does on a regular basis what you pretend to do on the weekends once every 20 years.
Are we really bragging about frequency of projects and needing trucks. Yeah, no insecurity issues there.[IMG class=inlineimg]/forums/images/FordInsideNews_2015/smilies/tango_face_kiss.png[/IMG]
FYI.....you don't need a truck to pick up vinyl flooring in boxes, paint, 12' trim pieces or 16' for that matter, 8' lumber, even doors and a gazillion things in between. Last I looked, pretty much every sedan sold has fold down seats, and so what if I have to drive about 5 miles with some lumber or trim sticking out. Did it many times before, will do it many times again. And in this case I did not need to borrow a truck for $24 to pick up 4x8 sheets, because I have a brother with a truck I borrow.
And the real point here is that, as I stated, most don't need two vehicles, when they can make do with a sedan and much better yet with a utility vehicle and borrow/rent when they need more which. Actually, I recall picking up 4x8 sheets and I have done it. That aside, this all started because you called people driving SUV's schmucks. LOL
