    i really only consider a truck a truck if it has a seperate box and cab. the avalanches and sport tracs etc. i dont really consider them a truck more like an SUV nothing wrong with that.

    a vehicle is a tool. if it does what you need it to do then i dont think it matters what you classify it as.

    No Im sorry but it is not a truck. Just because it has a bed, doesnt mean that it is a truck. Remember the El Caminos and Rancheros? Those had beds but they still were a car. Basically what I call those sport tracs, S10s, etc are just a bunch of glorified golf carts, LOL:D

    He's asking if it's a truck... So even if it holds a six pack and does what he needs it to do, that still doesn't make it a truck.
    Just go trade it for a crew cab. Now you have a truck and don't forget the diesel motor so it becomes a man's truck.

    I think this guy read a few of the first replies and left the site for good....

    Here's a test to see if you Sport Trac is a "real" truck or not: My F-250 SD w/ the 7.3L has a GVWR of 8800 lbs.... What's your Explorer Sport Trac's GVWR??? :rolleyes:

    ps: Did a little research, 5,001-6,000 lbs. case you were wondering.
