If your main purpose is "handy man" type stuff, you might want to think through bed size on the smaller trucks.

Sheetrock and other items can be a pain in the but to haul with small beds. Once or twice, no biggie, but continually having to compensate for small bed issues can be a hassle

I had two S10s when I was younger, and the smaller bed can be a headache when you are looking to do big things like flipping a house would require.

Don't get a truck! For some reason it immediately turns people into the worst drivers on the road.....

you must drive a little car than can't be seen by drivers of larger vehicles.

I have driven all the trucks and prefer Chevy/GMC. Dodge is always behind the curve and Ford tends to try and make things too complicated and they end up breaking. Tundra's are nice, but I'm not buying Jap anything when we make perfectly good trucks here.

Just bought a 2012 Toyota Tundra and I freaking love everything about it.

Make sure you get it from a Rick Hendrick Dealership I.e. Toyota of Concord.


I got lifetime powertrain warrenty on mine because of the Rick Hendrick dealership. 100$ deductible on any powertrain issues when my 60,000 toyota powertrain is over.

Make sure you atleast get the TRD and SR5 packages.

I know you said you wanted a fullsize but I had a 2008 4.0 supercharged Nissan Frontier that was a fuging beast for a midsized truck. It was the only vehicle that I've bought brand new and I loved that thing. I used to tow my dads 22ft ski boat from Boone to Watauga lake with ease, not to mention our 30ft job-site box trailer. it actually had a larger tow capacity than his F150.
