    At the end of the day I chose another Pickup for the versatility. Being a homeowner your always looking to haul crap to or from the house. A four door pickup is just that much more convenient. I can have the wife and baby ride along and if I need to stop at Lowes to pick up something oversized or pick up mulch from the local nursery on the way home I can do it. SUVs are limited to what you can carry. My wife has a 4Runner so we have our basis covered. I know if we are heading to dinner with another couple her truck is far more convenient.
