Are you really going to call the Honda Ridgeline a pickup truck? That thing is a Civic with raised suspension and a bed where the trunk should be. Google it for yourself.....it's based on a Civic, and last time I checked, a Civic is about as far removed from a truck as you can get. I know ElCamino's and Ranchero's are cars too, but they don't pretend to be trucks. All three of them are cars with a pickup box where the trunk should be.

As a kid my father had a 1973 Dodge Adventurer with the Club Cab and jump seats.  He placed an aluminium camper topper on the back and built a frame from angle iron in the bed that supported a mattress on a piece of ply wood just above the wheel wells.  This allowed for luggage storage under the "bed" and room for the four of us (Mom, Dad, brother and I) to sleep.  Not very comfortable but very functional.  318 cid V8 with a 4 speed manual transmission.  Many long cross country road trips and family vacations were had.  Mechanically speaking it NEVER failed.  In the late 90's is finally went to the scrap yard because it was more rust than truck by that point.  It would still start, run  and drive under its own power the day we took it to the junk yard.  Seeing that picture brought back fond memories of childhood.

There is a reason Ford trucks are #1...dependability in their suspensions, transmissions and engines. I have a '93 F-250 pushing 300k with a diesel. All I do is start it up and drive it. Oil changes every 3-4000 miles and that's about it other than minor repairs, water pump, alternator, tensioner pulley. Probably going to get a new front suspension this summer. Pull a 24' box car trailer with it...no problem.
