At least Chrysler is trying to keep it real:




Unlike Toyota (ps. why the heck is it pictured with Rocks??):

Last word I read about that new bronco talked about it being on a car platform.  I re-read it 2 or 3 times assuming I was wrong.

edit: found a blurb on edmunds, fiesta platform?  Guessing no solid front axle unless they come to their senses

Eh, depends on what yer towing.  I know Peps uses an f-150 to tow his rig from So-Cal up to the 'Con.. and everywhere else he goes.  It all depends on what you're towing and how you tow.

 :psss: My guess/hope is that eventually they will come out with another compact truck. Every refresh cars/trucks are made bigger and bigger leaving a void at the bottom. Perfect example is what happened with the civic. It eventually got so big that they had to release a different car to fill the compact segment. With fuel economy being forced on the automakers, it would make sense that sometime in the next 5 or 10 years we will see another compact toyota truck... or maybe my optimism is clouding my forsight :dunno:

I just bought an 07 thundra crewmax and it does not suck. Out pulls my hd chevy anyday and with much more interior room than anything I drive. Sorry I am just not going to wheel that much $ so I didn't even buy a 4x4.

Unlike Toyota (ps. why the heck is it pictured with Rocks??):

come on Mike, that's the new rockcrawler model.  It has more ground clearance than this pile of smegma:
