People buy big trucks because they need big trucks for some reason. Work, boats, campers, etc...

You know damned well most of them aren't actually using them for their intended purpose. Minitrucks of the 80s and 90s to early 00s were perfect for doing actual trucking. Plus they're small and look fucking sweet. Give me a Nissan hardbody, Yota, Datsun, Mazda, or a Ford Ranger any day over some ugly shit like the new Tundra, Titan, Chevy, or most ford's. I wish they were an actual body on frame truck not a unibody but I sort of like the Maverick and for real trucks the last body style Tacoma is pretty sweet looking for a new truck. I'd pick one up any time if I wasn't shit broke. I've never owned a car newer than 2003.

i dunno, but what I DO know is that 99% of pickup truck drivers are A**holes.

How did you arrive at that statistic? How many pickup truck drivers did you do a personality sample on to determine that?

Utility. Safety. Purpose vehicle. I have a truck and use the crap out of the bed, the towing and yes, during snowstorms which occur here. It happens to have an 8 cylinder because I tow with it. The size is nice and creates visibility in an otherwise very distracted driving environment. People texting, watching movies or playing games while driving at highway speed! The size also acts as additional safety.

Trucks are great for those that truly need and utilize them. No small peesh either.

That new Toyota is very cool. Too bad they won't sell it in the USA. I had a Hilux and loved it, my only complaint was it was difficult to haul 4x8 sheet goods which this one solves.

Maybe living in a free country leads
people to be trusting and friendly and
living in a police state causes people to
be suspicious and rude.

Americans used to be surprised Russians from
the Soviet Union were unfriendly.

Now that the USA is also a police state,
you might understand why.

Re: Why Are Pickup Trucks Ridiculously Huge? Blame Government.
I’m planning on going to a motorcross track that not have been used for awhile and there is about a foot of snow witch is weak .

I am planning on getting the loading worked out first and that alone will take big tires and 4 wheel drive .

If I can unload my bike and make it around the track 3 times , that will be where I call it and load back up .

And I have 3 tracks to choose from , I doubt anyone else is out there anymore

Back in 10', I had to buy a mid-sized truck because the full-size was too long to fit in the garage and still be able to close the overhead door. Fortunately, the Dakota came with a V-8 and luxury trim package.

When the US was a free country,
you might have thought that
everyone loved freedom, peace, and a
balanced budget.

Now that the USA is a police state,
Americans can easily see who are the
slaves and patriots.

Anyone who obeys the law is a
traitor and anyone who resists is a rebel.

I went to 2 tracks today and I couldn’t find a place to load and unload my bike because if it’s flat , no fucking way , try and ride it up maybe . And there was another way to go but it said no track parking , please , they had to say please so no one dose it and it takes big trucks to go that was.


And I saw 2 cowboys driving little cars and 2 wheel drive flatbeds are gay as any other gay ass 2 wheel drive truck and what and where did this shit come from . This thread is about gay cowboys and their gay bikers friends , isn’t it ,

Re: Why Are Pickup Trucks Ridiculously Huge? Blame Government.
those big pickups don't belong on the same streets as regular cars .. idiotic .. and don't get started driving at night .. the huge bright ass headlights are right in line with your eyes from behind .. and these aholes always get up right behind you at a light .. why not stay back a bit ? inconsiderate pieces of sh .. I try to angle the sideview mirror so it reflects back at them but I don't know if it's working
 Quoting: theshining


That’s all part of the big truck mentality. They have to be aggressive. They have to be pain in the ass, that’s the payoff that shows that “I’m still powerful,I’m big and mean, look out for me!” Meanwhile, their country and culture is disappearing right out from underneath them, and they’ll disappear soon, too - they know this in their heart of hearts, so they act out in silent rage.
