Edit: crew cab, 6.5' bed, 4x4 unless otherwise noted.

For just a couple of thousand more you can go electric. Depending on how far you drive a year you can save that in the first year with just fuel costs.

The only significant problem I see is when someone needs to tow long distances, I expect the range to drop by about 50%. Lucky for me most of my towing is under 100 miles.

Of course if the CD is .48 then towing range might not be affected that bad.
