Why do people need huge SUVs?  Why do people buy five or six bedroom homes when there are only one or two occupants?  Why does a woman have 50 or 100 pair of shoes?  The answer is all the same.... because they can!

That's the thing here in AZ. 50% or so of all personal vehicles are trucks. Great for tailgate parties. Go big or go home.

And there's something special with ladies and pickup trucks.

Why do people have a kid & then run out to buy this huge van for the smallest member of the family?  Kid is 20" tall & weights 8 lbs tops so you get the biggest 'container' for this little kid.

In my area people have them to haul trailers, toys, boats, RVs, and their deer/elk after hunting. They are pretty common. I never noticed them being the worst drivers. I am actually a little fearful of everyone on the road these days. -Kasey
