I think there is truth to that. I think if your idea of "overlanding" is traveling and poking into some choice backcountry more so than wheeling 4x4 trails with a household full of crap festooned all over your truck then I think the 3/4 Burbs and trucks are pretty sweet. Great drivetrain, much better front end than the 1/2 tons plus an aftermarket that can really beef them up beyond. I am a bit of a minimalist regards to vehicle builds these days, and having a big old payload and space to conceal all the gear inside the truck and keep it uber low profile is pretty sweet. I have gained a lot of respect for these vehicles the past few years of owning one.
