Thank you.Welcome to the club. I really like the grilling on the shovel.
Mostly cost. I also don't plan to tow, so I had no real need for the bigger engine.May I ask you why you decided on a 4 cyl? I think this truck with the V-6 is a great compromise over a full size. But, IMO with the 4 cyl you get very few benefits if any of the benefits of having a mid-size pickup.
