The wife and I might trade in our crappy Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo on a truck of some sort in a few months. My wife says a lot of people in her family have had Dodges and most of them have had tranny issues. I'm not very mechanical. Nor am I much of a "car guy." Let's just say I know more about things that go boom tban I do about things that go vroom, if that tells you anything. So assume I know nothing. I know, I know, real difficult task, right? Anyway, please try to leave personal bias out of it. If you prefer a brand please say why and try to be objective. Our needs? Well we don't NEED, per se. I just want. You know how it goes. So we want enough of a truck to grow into but not a durn semi either. We have two kids and want us all to fit comfortably in the cab, so I feel like that rules out a Ranger. So, talk at me about trucks. Brands? How much torque? Horsepower? Reliability? Brands? Bed size? How about brands? Ready, go. Oh and we about 95% won't be buying new.
