I really enjoyed your article on finding a real truck that you won't mind using as a truck! I have attached a photo of my 1992 Ford F-150 that is a regular-cab, long-bed XLT. So in other words, a dinosaur.
With 246,000 miles and still running like a top, I don't know when I will need to replace it, but I do see that it will be hard to find another regular cab four-wheel-drive truck that I can use without worrying about scratches and dents. I am disappointed that Toyota stopped offering four-wheel-drive on their regular-cab, short-bed Tundra. However, I was happy to learn that the Ram 1500 Tradesman comes in a four-wheel-drive, though. Thanks again!
We have to agree. It pains us to see dents and dings in the paint of a shinny new truck, but trucks are intended to take beatings no matter the job. Toyota still offers a four-wheel-drive Tundra with a longbed. Both the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 and 2014 Ford F-150 can be spec’d to fit your needs as well. The Silverado is only offered with the longbed while Ford offers three bed lengths for the single cab.
