Let me know how well it works rock crawling on a tight trail in the Utah desert and I might have interest.

I didn't see a single full size truck out there on any steep trail. I'm sure some people do it, but I went through places that required 4 point turns in a two door wrangler.

I've owned full size 4wd trucks. I have no use for one currently, and can haul everything I need to haul with a Wrangler and a utility trailer. And I like driving a Wrangler.
