The XL dosen't have the smooth startup for crawling
This is not the best choice.
You want a puller pro standard I think

startup won't be the smoothest, but it won't be terrible if we compare to most motors. It's a beast though!

I have a 2200kv and a mamba max on a 9t pinion, on 6s it does wheelies and after about 5 minutes I wore the trailer hitch mount off the rear bumper. The startup in first gear is pretty impressive IMO. https://youtu.be/N1F8w_xYG6Y

It's not insane at all if it's what you want your truck to be! You can always use Castle Link to fine tune your throttle/brake curves for more refinement. John Holmes has outstanding videos on how to optimize your ESC settings which will help you get the most out of what you have.
