SUV's AINT TRUCKS!!!

I don't know if anyone else out there has the same problem with this that I do, but here it is. I absolutely despise people that talk about their SUV (Jeep, Tahoe, explorer, etc.) and call it a truck. That is not a truck. If it doesn't have a bed, with or without a working tailgate, IT IS NOT A TRUCK! If it can't get wet when rains, it's not a bed either. After market Tops donít apply.

I know there are vehicles out there that you can take the factory top off and get the back of the vehicle wet, but that isn't a truck either. I have a "76 bronco that you could potentially put a half cab on, but that is a BRONCO not a truck. My wife runs around in an exploder (explorer) so I am not against SUV's, but even my kids know enough to say that's mommy's car and not daddy's truck.

Sorry in advance if I hurt any of those SUV owners feelings, but come on people. If you don't like to use SUV then call it a Tahoe or Bronco or even My Rig, But please don't use the work TRUCK unless it actually is. If you Want A Truck, Then Go Get A Truck.

Wow,
Just my $0.02

Back in the day my jeep wagoneer had plates on it that were Texas Truck plates. The title said it was a station wagon and people now would call it an SUV. I dont think a honda ridgeline is a truck but it is buy your standards. Same thing with an avalanche. Those are suv bodies that have been cut and turned into a truck.

You are entitled to your opinions even if they are wrong.

The Avalanche, Ridgeline, El Camino, Ranchero, Sport trac, and Hummer w/a 2 foot bed thing are all in a class of there own as far as I am concered. It's the WannaBe But I Can't Make Up My Mind Class. To me it's like owning a Mule(Donkey/Horse Cross) Its really not a bad ride but its still "Sterile"

By your definition a Freightliner with a van body is not a truck. If we want to leave big trucks out of this Im pretty sure you can fit more cargo in and haul more with a diesel Excursion then you can with a Ranger, Tacoma, Frontier, Colorado, S-10, etc.

I think the excursion is a truck.. And way to get off on the right foot beating us excursion owners up I had a truck but I needed more room for kids and couldnt find a crew cab I liked and this one I have is super clean so take it how you want but I guarntee you my excursion can pull more then a chevy 1/2 ton or a dodge 1500 or a yota or a bronco so take it how you want
