I have a 2011 Silverado Z71 I have never owned a jeep but I have always wanted one. So my question would be has anybody traded in a truck for a jeep and regretted it. I dont pull anything and I use my bed a very few times but it does come in handy. Thanks in advance for any answers.

Contemplated getting a pickup and buying a used wrangler - didn't go that route. Get the JLU and tow package and get a utility trailer for the times you need cargo space.

I’ve had all sorts of vehicles and full size trucks. I traded in my 2017 Silverado Ltz plus crew cab. No regrets.

I traded in a 2015 Colorado Z71. like you I very seldom used to tow or haul anything in the bed. I also always wanted a Jeep.
once or twice I wish I still had my truck, but I take one look at my jeep and I get over it real quick.

Came from a Gen I Raptor. No regrets. Jeep is more fun to drive, even on the road (thanks to the 6sp manual + top down and doors off).

If you think you'll need a truck but want a jeep then get the Gladiator next year. All the awesomeness of a wrangler with a 5' box to boot. :like:

Traded in my 4dr Cummins Ram. Don’t tow like I used to, have access to another truck for light hauling. I don’t miss driving that school bus around at all.

Had trucks for last 30 years. Just traded 2017 Sierra LTZ crew for 2018 JLU Sahara- No regrets! Family loves it too. Got hooked after buying 03 TJ past spring. Fun vehicles to drive.

Traded in a 2010 F150 SCREW. The only time I missed it was when we picked up my daughter’s full size mattress base from the Costco.... but I just ratchet strapped it to the top.

No, where I live everyone owns a truck, they use the bed for not a damn thing and about 10% of ppl tow with their truck. From a common sense standpoint trucks are vastly over priced and over represented in the southeast.
It kills me when I see trucks with a bicycle rack in the hitch receiver :surprised:

The only time I regretted not having a pickup anymore was when I needed to haul some lumber for something I was building for the Jeep... So if I didn't have the Jeep I wouldn't have needed to haul the lumber... :headbang:

Anyways, If I really do NEED a pickup I can borrow my Dad's truck, or go to uhaul and rent a pickup.
