The versatility of the truck is unmatched. I have been able to use two tiered hauling, filling the area under cargo panels and then stacking an equal amount of weight and stuff on top. I can haul 2 yards of mulch in the back, hose it off and go out to a nice dinner that night.
The midgate has come in handy, I have even had scouts sleep in it with the midgate down. The side storage areas are great as well.
