I get that. In a lot of cases I have the 'Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it' mentality.I like to have twice the truck than what I need. (Which doesn't mean the biggest and the bestest tho')
Oh yeah! Auto-traders and we had Bargain Finder up here too. Once in a while I'd splurge for the expensive 'Classic Trader' for the old cars. It would cover all the vintage cars listed for sale across Canada, haha.Before the internet, used to grab Auto-traders at the local gas and sip. Leaf through those, and say to myself..."ohhh, I need that"...."errr, no I don't"
Have this love hate relationship with vehicles. A total motorhead, but I hate spending money...
The appeal for me with the Gladiator is that the top comes off. I've wanted another convertible since I since I sold my last one 20 years ago, But, it never made sense to get one. Now, I could have an open top vehicle that can tow, haul and be decent to drive in the winter.Think at this point, we are better off buying a fullsize truck. Midsizes have no real advantages over a fullsize.
Keep on looking at RCLB and DCSB Ram Classics with the V6, darn near the same capacities as a Midsize and for $10K or so less. Doesn't have the cool factor as a Gladiator, but has the same running gear, and will haul a beat-up Coleman stove and sleeping bag just the same.
