I have a double cab with the 6' box but I need a tool box so that cuts down bed space a bit.
I like the new super duties but they made them super tall. Rumor is the 2020 is supposed to sit lower but I don’t know.
I heard that to, guess enough guys were complaining about the height jacking up their trailers.
I honest dont think I could drive any of the current 3/4 ton+ trucks into my garage or any normal garages.
I drove my Ram into a parking garage this weekend and almost got stuck in there. People had parked on the ends where you turn to go the other direction and I barely fit between them and my turning radius make it sketchy as hell. Not to mention I only had a few inches to spare above the cab. I was worried for a bit that I was going to have to back all the way out because I didn't think I could make one of the turns where a bunch of jackasses parked in spots that weren't spaces.
I went from this:
...to this because the length was a PITA. Same scenario as George just posted. I like the bed but the apartment sized interior just wasn't necessary for me. We have an Acadia for the family vehicle and if we have to use this, the kids will deal.
Not much room to haul anything in my 8ft. bed, but that's okay, I have lots of trailers and plenty of truck to pull them.
Is that where the offroad fuel goes.
36 + 42 gal. even at 8.5 mpg I can drive all day.
My stock height 13 F250 will (barely) fit into some parking garages labeled 7’. Any of the 6’7 or lower I won’t even bother trying. Finding a space usually isn’t an issue because I’m used to dealing with the length and shitty turning radius.
The new ones are a solid 3-4” taller just based on my guesstimate.
My dad has a 16 F250 and makes my truck look small and I agree the new ones look even bigger thou may be the styling that looks that way. These trucks are definitely not downtown trucks, still want one thou.
This is my buddy Pickle, he just had a bath.
Pickle is a basic guy, he is all manual...windows, door locks, seat, transmission. He has no fancy a/c or bluetooth stuff.
He is a solid dude, always ready to visit the airplane field and stop at the DQ on the way home.
I love him! My Dad has an '87 F250 that he bought new and it's the same way, all manual. It looks like new too, he's done a great job of taking care of it although he needs a new front axle. The 300 six died when the cat plugged up and caused excess backpressure which burned a hole in a piston at 280k miles. It now has a 302 in it since he had a spare EFI 302 laying around it was cheaper than rebuilding the 300. I do love that bodystyle Ford.
Perfect name for a great lookin' truck.
The bed is definitly higher but I don't think the roof is. But my 19 did come stock with a 34" tire, largest stock tire by far.
I got this truck from my good friend about two months ago. Has higher mileage but rides pretty good and the price was right!
Man, I freaking love these tall trucks. I can lean on the bedrails comfortably. Its also give me an opportunity to touch my 5'2" wife's butt helping her in.
I liked them too until I bought a fifth wheel camper.
Not familiar with fivers, but there a way to adjust the angles? Or just you just kind of stuck with it like that?
Is it a 275/65/20 or something else?
That’s what my 13 came with.
