    Hi , question what do you do with your vehicles after testing, 1st year ?

  2. Full size trucks have gotten too big. Unless you are a contractor or rancher that hauls regularly or tows a trailer they are way too big for daily driving.
    The mid size trucks are the size of full size trucks from the 1990’s and 2000’s
