I’m thinking of buying a truck in the next five years. Pickup truck, probably full bed (I don’t see the point of short bed trucks–you get all the discomfort of a truck without the hauling capacity).

I would appreciate it if people who own trucks, or know anything about trucks, would care to share their experience and expertise. I would be getting it to haul stuff and be my primary vehicle. My wife has a sedan that would be used for going places, transporting friends, etc.
