You mentioned no "suicide" doors. You may or may not know that GM has improved those doors on the extended cabs. They open fully now. I don't really need the full back seat for passengers and find the opposite opening doors handy because it opens the truck up fully from the side. It also allows for a 6.5' bed with a reasonable wheel base.

Yes, the shorter wheelbase is what I like about the extended cab sized truck. I had an '07 extended cab GMC 1/2 ton and the whole time I had it, I hated the suicide rear doors, but liked all the rest of it.

r carl, I find it strange that I need to explain why I don't want something, but if you must, here goes....I haul stuff frequently in the rear of the truck that I wouldn't want in the rear of an SUV. I haul stuff routinely that would require removing the rear seat, and folding down the middle seats in an SUV, even a big one like a Suburban, to get enough room. I never need the seating capacity of an SUV. Those things that I haul would in time damage the interior of an SUV. It gets HOT in Texas, and a large SUV takes a long time to cool down inside, even with two airconditioners. We have two other vehicles, smaller SUV's, and do not need or want a third.

I really hope these are enough reasons to satisfy everyone's mind about why I don't want an SUV.

3. 4X4, 6.5 ft bed
4. large fuel tank (36 gallon)
5. Wide factory towing mirrors
6. Minimum 9,000 lb towing capacity
7. 1800 Payload capacity
8. Not white, not red, not black

If any of you find a 1/2 ton truck with these features, please let me know.
You havent said gas or diesel motor in your dilemma.
