Ok, hopefully some of you can shead some light on the subject for me but I don't understand why sooooo many landcapers buy 3/4 trucks when you could buy twice the truck for just a little more. It seems that they (3/4er's) out # 1-tons by 2-1. Just dosn't make a whole lot of sense, I'd rather have the payload and versatility of being able to have a 1-ton with a flatbed and 5000+ payload vs 3000lb payload. And no, I don't think I'm the only one who loads these up all the way, or has a need to. PS Please don't tell me its a matter of choice, that dosen't add up either.
