I have a 1998 4x4 Chevy Crew Cab dually, LOR was right people do get out of your way. I'm use to it now since I hace a Extended Cab dually before, plus I grew up driving hearse's and limo's (Here at the Funeral Home) Once you get use to it it's fine!! One thing is that my wife hates to drive it.....but that might be a good thing!!! I wish I would have gone to a Crew Cab from the Extended earlier!!
As far as I'm concerned.....When it comes to towing, I don't care how well the truck or trailer is set up, it's better with a dually!!! But, then again I hate the side to side sway from a single rear wheel while towing!!
I do have a another truck that's a reg. cab short bed 4x4 that I just drive around town and back and forth from work, (3 block's) but since I've got the Crew Cab I haven't been driving the Small truck!!
