    There can be a reason or two. DB98B946-47AE-434F-A533-910F412C8A99.jpeg F2B53E68-A999-447C-936A-9BEE40311DB6.jpeg

    If you own a house, you will eventually need a truck. Actually, they should sell you the truck when you buy the house...just roll it up into the mortgage.

    One of my brothers builds houses for a living. His "pickup" since about 03 was a Honda Element. He just bought a new little Toyota pickup thing, the Honda has seen its better days.
    I asked him years ago why he didn't have a pickup and he said, "why drive a gas hog everyday when the lumber yards deliver?"
    Make sense really.
    Truth is I don't need another pickup, hardly use the 3/4 ton 4x4 81 Dodge I got now. I just want one. The '81 is rusty now so it'll get a snowplow and stay at my place in the woods.
    I do want to stick with a 3/4 ton though because when you go to the rental store to get a backhoe, you have to have a 3/4 ton to pull their trailer.
    This fall I had to pull one for my little brother, he's got a brand new 1/2 pickup, with the "towing package" and all that other crap they sell on the stupid things for about $50,000. They wouldn't let him pull the backhoe but had no problem at all with a 40 year old pile of crap that set me back $1,500 ten years ago.
    Only thing they asked was if it had electric brakes, I said "YES".
    They probably should've asked me if they worked! They didn't! But that turned out to be their trailer, not the old pickup, lights didn't work on it either. But apparently as long as it's hooked to at least a 3/4 ton, they're covered for liability. :)
