    A very valid point , I enjoy the lower bed height myself. I really can't understand why some trucks such as the new f150 have bedsides so high. it seems quite pointless to me.

    this.

    the 5 lug has much less unspring weight.

    SUA is better imho.

    you can fit more legit rims on 5 Lug trucks.

    also, most 5 Lugs don't have stupid fender flares, therefore, are cleaner, superior and more awesome in every way.

    Haha...I have often wondered why anyone would want a 2WD truck for anything other than commercial purposes. Reading this, I can totally understand some of your points on the benefits of a 5 lug.

    However, for me, I need a 4x4. I use my vehicles as hunting trucks and get into some hairy areas, I wheel a little bit when it suits me, and I live in the snow belt.

    If I lived down south where they never get snow, I probably would have gone 5 lug or PreRunner, here if you don't have a 4x4 you won't go far in the winter. I like the looks of 6 lugs better, much more aggressive and bold looking, the way the panels bulge out makes it look like they are flexing their muscles! XD
