Worse excuse ever IMHO! "First, we didn’t like the steps" Other reasons are understandable.


Cummins 12V98 Along with full use of truck bed , lower overall height my barn has a 12 foot door. As for the steps to bed room and sometimes a small step 4 inch which the bed sits on. My wife one night in the dark and only half awake fell or tripped of the small ledge. That did it for us any more a flat floor plan from then on. No more fivers for us

To the OP,
No doubt that a 5er will tow better than an equally equipped bumper pull but 2 valid reasons I remain on the bumper.

1. My building won't support the SIGNIFICANT height difference.
2. I require all of the truck bed each and everytime out.
