Having been a custom house builder truck and a 5er tow vehicle the obvious choice was a 4x4 dually crew cab long box. As a builder I need a truck that I can fit 4x8 sheet goods inside the bed, and get onto land without a road in all weather, as a tow vehicle, I didn't want to worry about tight turns pulling a 5er. I also have a house in North Shore Tahoe. I need a 4x4. Even getting 9 x4 sheets of shear panels and buying long lumber I needed a big truck. With a lumber rack I can easily handle 20 foot lumber and siding no problems. My truck is expected to work as hard as I do and my 6.7 liter Cummins diesel does so without complaint. It pulls a 40 foot quad slide 5er and handles my contracting business easily. No, it's not cute, it's a beast and it can not be parked inside. It's too tall, too wide, and too long but it pulls like a freight train. I didn't want a warm fuzzy and a slider hitch for my truck. I wanted something to get the job done no issues in all wearther. It does, and it does it well. I'm a long bed dually guy all the way.
