Full-size trucks aren't always easy to maneuver in tight parking lots. Our Silverado is no exception.

    With practice you will be able to park that truck in places where people say it shouldn't fit. Parallel parking aside of course.

    Trucks work well for rural usage. Hauling hay, throwing a few shovels and sprinkler pipes in the bed, storing a couple of saddles or a welder with a toolbox, etc. You never have to park it at home because it's kept outside on the ranch. A drive into town means parking it at the feed lot or in wide slanted parking spots on Maint Street.

    It's all these morons that buy these things because their kid plays baseball and they need to throw the baseball bag in the bed and they live in cities and about two times a year they haul a fridge from one jackwagon's garage to another jackwagon's garage and they justify the need for a full-size truck for these two trips instead of paying $20 for an hour and renting a truck from Home Depot.

    Then they "park" these monstrosities in parking lots made for a Prius and the rear-end sticks out 7 feet beyond the parking space and the truck straddles both parking space white lines and little Johhny gets out and swings the 7-foot long passenger door into my beautiful Maserati.

    Trucks are for cowboys.

    @dunning15 Trucks are for people who know how to drive. While what you say is sadly correct considering that this configuration of truck is the most common in this weight class, blame society for not knowing how drive these things don't blame the vehicle.

    Tough to park and has a big turning circle? The don't get a crew-cab half-ton pickup truck - geez, what can I tell you? I agree with dunning15 again, especially the part about getting a truck from HD for an hour when you need to move something - this is starting to get scary.
