    You should have left your slide/bump stock home.

    Better question, why would any American male with a functioning set of balls not buy/own a truck? So go hop back in your smart car there princess and pick yourself up something nice from Bath and Body Works.

    Now more importantly, I don’t have 2 flying [email protected] to give about what these other 59 alternative genders think about my choice of vehicles. So expensive trucks for me and Range Rovers for my wife. Just the way we like it.

    This thread has become a ****-show.

    Please, DaleGribble, M&P15, AK Stick, and anyone else caught up in their "fight", can you stop now? Just like Republicans and Democrats, no one is going to change the other's mind, it has just degenerated to insults with a few other things surrounding those insults.

    Please. Pretty please. With sugar on top! It's not even close to on-topic and it's taken over the thread.

    And no, I don't want to put any of you on ignore because other than this thread, I have had no reason to. I am a newb here and I am begging you all to let it go.

    I am sitting at a local car wash/detail place right now getting my Tundra cleaned. In the detail area where they are doing the inside there are a total of 9 vehicles.

    6 trucks
    1 Dodge Van
    1 Lexus SUV
    1 Ford Mustang

    All trucks are driven by men. The other 3 vehicles older females have got out of, haha....

    Just getting a kick out of this thread.

    After cleaning my Tundra, I am going to the Chevy dealer to trade for a 2500hd. I drove the truck for 2 years/50k miles and got $2,500 less than I paid.

    Oh, and my truck is the only one with a hitch in it or looks like it pulls anything. That is including 2 F-250's.

    You ain't pulling squat with a 3.55 gear. It'll be about $3000 to have proper gears installed. Minus well add a front Yukon Grizz locker at the same time. Hold out for a 3.73 or 4.30 model. When that day comes, I'll be adding 4.56 or 4.88 gears to my 17 6.2l.

    Black is only good if you plan on a full vinyl wrap.

    Black is no big deal. I actually enjoy washing my car every weekend, weather permitting.

    As for the towing. The biggest thing I would be towing is a 11,000 lb camper.

    They buy them because real cars aren’t sold anymore. You want a body on frame vehicle with 4 doors you have to buy a truck.

    Unless you’re towing an awful lot of weight, or an awful lot, you’ll never see a return on changing your gears over.

    But you’d probably see a bigger dip unloaded.

    I had that year Suburban Black and silver 4x4 with the towing package 3.73 gears leather interior I loved that beast ran just as good when I sold it at 185,000 miles the 5.7 motors had good torque, and I installed a larger Trans cooler never had an issue.

    depends on what the ratios are in his transmission the newer trucks have 6-10 speed transmissions with steeper starting ratios

    I've got two of them. They still suck with 3.55 gears. Avoid at all cost.

    So you are saying you have 2 of the new 7.3l gas trucks with 10 speed transmissions and they suck?
