Knowing what you know about your current daily use truck, if you could do it over, what would you have bought and why? If happy with current...why?

Base interior and a long bed. Bells and whistles are cool to play with on a test drive, but all you really need in a truck is good A/C and the radio.

What about brands...bought ram, wished you would've bought ford or Chevy. Just an example...nothing wrong with any of them. May be getting a truck soon, always been a ford guy-but like the look of Chevy. I'm sure they are all reliable.

Not a thing honestly, except for trading my '11 for a '15. I've got a 2011 F350 with about 250,000 on it and it still works flawlessly. Gonna keep it until around 300,000 and go get me one of the new body style '17s!

I had a Tundra 1794 for 5 months...my do-over was back to Ford. I did buy a platnium with all the technology stuff...if I had it to do over I would've saved cash and bought a Lariat without the technology...the 360 camera is nice when you get in tight spots but the adaptive cruise, lane departure and parallel parking is as much of a pain as it is nice.

Never would have bought the 6.0 Chevy. Went back with a Ford, and love it.

First new vehicle I ever bought fit all my wants likes and needs... trouble was I bought it shortly before I got married and it didn't fit "OUR wants likes and needs"

Second new vehicle I bought fit all of "OUR needs" but not many wants at all.

Shopping around till I find the right one that fits everything. Im gonna have to compromise and buy an auto though and I don't like it.

I would have bought a MegaCab. Other than that, wouldn't change anything. I've had them all, every brand and trim level. I keep them 3-4 years and use them like a rented tool.

Hated everything about that truck. Everything. It got to the point that it angered me just to see it sitting in front of my house.

Downsized from a silverado 2500 6.0 to the gmc sierra 1500 5.3. Both trucks 4x4, both with 33in mud tires, the 2500 would wax the sierra all over town. I wish I'd stayed with the 3/4 ton. Gas mileage isn't significantly better with the 5.3 but torque difference is huge.

Line X the exterior!

The "Mesquite" pin striping on mine is a little extreme!
