Oh yeah didn't think about that. That would suck!

I hate the fact that mine has no power at all. All my full size pickup friends are always giving me crap for it. And the fact that it can't get through any mud (not that I go mudding, but there are times where there was a good amount of mud between me and my destination) because its 2wd with open diff. Grrr

Up north entire pieces of the truck literally rust off. Like the tailpipe hanger, leaf spring shackle, or spare tire carrier lol

I've lost the spare tire carrier and like 3 chunks of heat shield thanks to the winters up here and the rivers of salt the MA DOT stuffs on the road. The north is where cars go to die lol

17 foot Starcraft superfisherman. With two motors, fuel & gear etc. I'm guessing 2500 - 2750 lbs. Where I live anywhere I want to go involves climbing at least one pass and a heck of a lot of "hills".

It could be worse, sometimes I have to fill up four times a day! Of course I'm also traveling over 700 miles that day pulling a 5X8 cargo trailer and having a gross weight of more than 7000lbs. I do this with my 93 with a 4 banger and 5 spd. Now has over 323K on it.
