Seriously though, there's something I've always wondered. You have to open the back window and fold the seats down to use the full bed right? So that means the cab is open to the elements right? So snow and ran can get in if you run to Home Depot on a day like that. Or if it's 25F outside, you freeze trying to use the whole bed.

I suppose you can make sure you only open up the back on clear, warm, sunny days, but then what's the point? It's like having a Corvette you only drive on the second tuesday in June if it's 80F+ outside. It's not a truck that can be used whenever and where ever you need regardless of the weather. I guess with the crappy weather and rapid changes here in NY I always thought that was a stupid idea. (So I don't like the Avalanche or Toyota's ABAT thing.)
The bed with the "midgate" up is bigger than the bed on your truck. We never put the the window thing down, never saw the need.

One of the cooler things about the bed (besides the recessed lighting in the bedsides that was STOCK) was that it came with a tonnue cover. It slid on like our bed rail system and was 3 pieces. Lock the tailgate and you have a 100% secure bed. Toyota should do something like that on the Taco or Tundra.

Your truck doesn't look like ass because you sold the Frontier

Yeah that's all cool and everything, but 2 things stand out:

1) It's a chevy
2) It looks like ass

Yeah I admit, the frontier looked like ass. But at the time I bought it, I needed a cheap reliable truck.

Ok, but still. What happens when it rains or snows? I guess it would be like cutting the back of our cabs off and driving around in the winter. In reality, you probably wouldn't. But what's the point of a truck that has limited functionality 6 months of the year and when it rains?

I don't understand what your getting at.

It has a normal bed with the gate up. Just as big as the beds on the D/C Tacos (actually a few inches longer/wider). If you want to you can put the thing down to have an 8FT bed, but in the rain the interior of the truck would more than likely get wet.

That's what I meant. If you wanted the full 8ft bed like you can do, then the weather has to be good. So here in NY where it gets down below zero you can't use the 8ft bed for several months. Just seems like if you need an 8ft bed, buy an 8ft bed truck. Not a truck that can fold to have an 8ft bed, but opens the cab up to bad weather and makes the rear passengers get out.

I guess to me it's like buying a hatchback car and saying "oh, well, I can move furniture with this too if I leave the back hatch open...."

I bet of all the ones I see around here NONE of them open the midgate/window to get the full 8ft. Sorta defeats the purpose buying it at that point.

I guess. To me the extendable bed was one of those features that is just on there as a gimmick to make people say "oh cool!".

Most people who buy the truck aren't looking for the 8FT bed (its kinda stupid IMHO) they want a crew cab truck that's comfortable, can tow a good bit of weight, and rides like a Cadillac. That's what it does.

Klown, I'm sending Negative rep your way for talking shit about the Avalanche! I loved my Avalanche. What a smooth ride. I could haul all types of shit in that thing. It was fast and it looked badass. Mine had the cheaper vinyl cover instead of the three piece setup. But most of the time if I had to haul something that was pretty long, I just dropped the mid-gate and left the window in place. That was you could keep out the elements. Oh, it did eat up some gas though...

Well damn, I didn't know you liked the avalanche, in that case I change my mind. The avalanche is a good truck. Sorry for the confusion

What Chevy did was have some leftover trucks, couldn't get rid of them because the new body style had already been released, so what's America's answer ? snap some plastic on it and give it a new name. It might have been a good riding truck, but as I see it, it was just a 4 door P/U with a leak at the back window.

Really? The Avalanche was built on the Suburban platform, if I remember correctly.

Very possible, I didn't pay that much attention to them, I looked at one at a new car show, briefly, discredited it quickly and moved on. I have a friend at work who has one it thinks it the cats ass, whatever lets you sleep at night.

That's the only real complaint (aside from blind spots) that I have heard about the Avalanche. I just didn't want something that big.
