    Depends on what you plan on doing with it.

    If your route is tight and you do a lot of turning, it might be a pain to maneuver.

    My plan is to have this truck run most time on landscaping, but when needed im going to add the 5x8 trailer to it, for one mower. my plan is to use it for commerical and restedntal landscaping jobs, when i need two mowers, thats where the 16 ft trailer comes into play. lot people say that two, and super cad with 6ft bed is better, but when you add tool box, you have no room, in bed or cab. I also have a 06 toyota tocoma that i use for the tight places, which im trying to quickly weez out

    I wish that I had a long bed.
