the wife is not happy with the seating in a kingcab, the back seats dont look good, our lad may end up being a 7 footer. This double, 4 door, cab above results in a 4'6 bed, what use is that, I dont ride a monkey by FFS. If the japs built a single cab with three seats.
The 4door Crew Cab is also available with the long bed... on Nissan Frontiers / Navaras

The defender 130 bed looks similar to the 110 hcpu bed, but the 110 hcpu is longer (almost 2m).
and you have 3 seats in a row on the 110...

Definitely a shortbed. The stepside S10 was only a shortbed. Narrower also than a regular bed. I had a fleetside shortbed, about useless for a bike, well maybe a Scwhinn!
If you see an extended cab S10, that will also be a shortbed. Longbeds only available with a regular cab.

What about a Hilux? Cabs too small?

Very quick helpfull info, thanks all. He says its 72'' by 40 within the wheelarches. a squeeze for two big bikes I guess, seems pretty frugal, by yank standards.

You could get two MX bikes in that S10, but never two Guzzis. Unless you dont mind a few dents!

Other than the better gas mileage, I'd avoid the S10. ( I had one and loved it). I could never haul a bike in it, I'd borrow a trailer instead. CX500, Shadow 750 and a slew of others, the bed was just too short. If a trailer is not an option, a fullsize with a long bed would be my choice. The Dodge you showed would work fine, as would the Chevy or the Ford.
Not knowing how common repair parts are in your part of the world (brake pads, shock absorbers/dampers, etc) you might want to keep that in mind when you pick a brand. I can go into any auto parts store and get a brake disc for my Chevy off the shelf, but I'd have some trouble getting one for a Jensen Interceptor
Look each one over and see if it was maintained well. Any of the choices you mentioned have had examples run 300000+ miles, and many have died before 50,000. All depends on the driver and maintenance the truck had.

Don't supposed you've thought of getting a Transit Van, they made 1 million variations throughout the years.

The thought has crossed my mind. I am afraid I would be categorised as a gypsy should I get one of THOSE, and they get a pretty bad press over here!! A pickup also has a VERY high bed which will then need a VERY long ramp.

I fancy something different and a yank pickup has only been off the list due to fuel costs here in blighty. Jap stuff has either insufficient seating or dumpy beds. This C10 is really cool.

Glad you didn't go for the Dodge V-6. I had a '98 that got 11 mpg on a good day and wouldn't pull a fart up a molehill.

4wd are always more thirsty, even if driven in 2wd.

Doesn't say what size engine, but the small block Chevys are bullet-proof. Driven nicely, I bet you might be able to see close to 20mpg (your gallons) from that truck- if it doesn't have a low geared rear-end, and it has the smaller V8.

If the trans is the ZF 5 speed stick, that could be expensive if it blows up. I know, because I killed two or three behind a 6.5L diesel - but pulling a 37 foot trailer. So light duty work may be Ok. That is a short bed (6 footer) as well. Many a bike has been hauled with the rear wheel on a tailgate before, however. Shorter bed might be better for your type of streets.

200k miles can be routinely put on this era of Chevy pickup trucks, with proper maintenance.

It says 5000cc. I am not sure what that equates to in cubic inches, I guess 5l is about 290CU. 20 IS NOT ENOUGH, and there I was about to HIT THE BUTTON. I really like the chevrolet 4 pot I posted but the aucton has a while to run.
