2016 Toyota Tacoma for a small business

Some time ago new Tacoma was anounced:

http://www.toyota.com/tacoma/


Here is some interesting comparison and more to read on this page.

I am thinking on starting a small building and fixture busines and they say it's the only mid-size truck that could fit 4x8 sheets of sheetrock/plywood flat in the bed.

It also has a towing capacity of 5000, which is nice.

This both could be real handy.
Did anyone used it for such purpose? How is your experience and what about owning price?

Any competing Jeep models are welcome!

You need a 3/4 ton van.

I still hope to use it for everyday rides, 3/4 van wouldn't be so handy

A Tacoma is a great ride for a guy who shows up with a clipboard. But, if there is any serious work going on, one has to choose between a full sized pickup and a van. They are both bad rides compared to a Tacoma. But, a van gets locked up, keeps everything dry. Serves as a field warehouse. And, a nice place to sleep while waiting which is a lot of what gets done on a job site.

Toyota quality stand for itself and they should have a good frame under them by now.... A local plumber just bought an extended cab one and likes it for a work truck. Easy to get in and out of places and room for tools and supplies. It probably wont excel like a full size truck or van would, but if you are going to use it as a dual purpose truck it will serve it's function just fine. I have seen more serious work go on out of smaller stuff and if you are sleeping on the job site then you need to learn how to schedule your time and work better.

Spoken like a guy with a clip board.
