I've got 3 FT's. They barely fit in my Avalanche. I actually have to tilt them up at a angle to get the tailgate to close. I like them, but if distance is a concern then the FT is the way to go. An another option is to buy the smaller one and then replace the bands with the theraband stuff to get farther throws with the smaller one. Granted if you get the FT's and put theraband on them you'll get even farther throw. The FT can also do primer loads for noise.
