I was amused that 4 of the 5 threads under yours were about buying trucks

It's just sour grapes from the have-nots. Owning a sports car = small dick. Owning a motorcycle = small dick. Owning a truck = small dick. If you have anything except a 1.0l hatchback you have a small dick in their jealous eyes.

Usually one or more applies to owners of raised trucks;

-wears ball cap all the time
-mullet hairstyle
-napoleon complex
-goes by Cooter, Jeb, Quaid, Roscoe, Ace, Bob
-has one of those stickers of a kid urinating on a Ford or Chevy logo on his back window
-truck nutz hanging from the hitch
-urban cowboy who's raised truck with big wheels has paint more immaculate than most sports cars
-doesn't know what a turn signal stalk is for
-drives over train tracks slower and more gently than drivers of slammed vehicles

I hate to group a bunch of individuals but it's really hard to find a lifted truck owner that doesn't fit in the stereotype somehow.

I hate trucks and SUVs but only because I can’t see around them.

But, I don’t hate their owners. Trucks are a logical choice if you want visibility, safety in the most common longitudinal collisions and need hauling and towing options. Barring runaway energy prices I only see that market growing.

Personally I like to be low and nimble. Also I’m short and nothing looks dumber than a giant truck pulling up and a little squatting guy jumping out of it. Or sometimes worse, climbing into it. Err or trying to.

Agreed, unfortunately driving these vehicles around make our smaller cars more dangerous because of misaligned bumpers and greater mass in general hurling around at the same speeds. There's a reason passenger cars keep piling on the pounds and it isn't electronics.

I went from an E60 530i to a Lincoln Navigator for almost 5 years. It served its purpose with kids and travel, but I found myself going back to a G30 after a year of driving it mostly empty. Plus the Nav transmission failed at 100,000 miles, probably from my "spirited" BMW style of driving...

My wife drives an SUV, and when we need to haul large items that is what we use.
