The F150 I just sold still was a great truck. Fuel mileage is a primary consideration vs how I utilize my pickup. I don't pull any significant weight so smaller was better. Both in physical size and power. Comfort of the Ford was better due to better seats and again size. Having owned several Toyota's over the last 35 years of driving made this choice a good one over some other smaller vehicle. Resale is also a great consideration.
The nice guy who referred to being a bit of a di_k, well you said it. Sorry to say but with a handle like El Smurfo sounds like you might have a personal problem as well.
Just my thoughts. K
