You're using your grocery getter all wrong.
And here I am shopping for Stewart and Stevenson's for daily drivers. haha
Welp, I’ve enjoyed my 2014 Ram these last 5 years. This popped up earlier today. Let’s just say I’ve scheduled the update and have parked it where it’s out of the way should it not start later this afternoon.
I have never seen this before. It’s locked everything on the touchscreen.
Did you park it where a the truck can get it after the update locks every up. Lol
Sent that pic to my buddy with a Ram. He said his updated, I assume via wifi, on it's own and is good to go. Not a problem.
Ford has been offering a 34"/35" tire stock for over ten years, at least since 2005, with the 20" wheel.
Yeah I get that but for me it's a first.
Rumor was wrong, maybe this guy is 6ft 4in tall.
Yeah, WTF is with the new trucks being built like skyscrapers. My 2017 2wd GMC is within a half inch of my coworkers 4wd GMC. Pisses me off that I need a stepstool to reach the dipstick. Not short, 6', and long arms. My Wife describes me as "Monkey Arms"!
Seriously considering a 2-4" drop.
Iunno. I like it. Nice switch from driving my wife's Focus. hehe
Even my current 2wd Colorado the bed is stupid high on, 54” bed rail height.
Chevy has class leading bed area, I know because I've seen the commercial 5 trillion times. It seems like Chevy gave up on the rest of the truck but that bed and tailgate sure gets bragged up.
i wish they’d make a proper normal height truck.
I’m lookin at new trucks for when my buyback happens and right now I’m leaning toward a f150 single cab, 8’ bed, 4x4....... it’ll get a 2” rear lowering kit to make it level.
The newer F150s confuse me, some seem normal height but then other stock ones seem to look bigger and higher almost looking like a F250 at first glance.
As I get older and fatter it would be nice have a truck that sits higher for doing oil changes. Honestly it look at a normal Ram 4x4, guy at work has one and you'd swear it's 2wd as low as it sits.
I had a ram 1500 in 2014/15 and it was tall enough for my 6’3 280lb ass to slide under on a creeper and change the oil without jacking it up. Needed a stool to reach the top mounted oil filter on the v6, that motor was WAY back in there.
my Colorado I can roll from one side under and across to the other on a creeper. The front was too low til I took the air spoiler off the bottom.
F-150 front height seems ok to me, but the bed is too tall, they sell a 1.5” shorter leaf spring shackle to drop the rear to almost level. I’m into it.
My 06 chevy isnt to bad, now I'm used to rolling around under class 8 trucks so that doesnt help much. I think the height on my 06 is perfect for pretty much everything as you dont have to step up to high to get into the cab or bed.
My BIL is a little vertically challenged and bought a newer GM 1/2ton last year and asked to borrow my air compressor to work on it. Come to find out hes installing these really fancy side steps to get in easier since hes also lifting it.
I think it was some time about 2008/2010 the full size trucks started goin taller, for the small/midsize truck it was around 2007. Toyota still made normal height Tacoma’s til 2014,
now everything is tall
Ford started it with the first gen super duty trucks and like you said it was mid to later 2000s that they all started getting bigger and taller. It seems mostly the new 3/4 tons are the really tall ones, kinda have to wonder with the aftertreatment packaging if it's for extra clearance due to the higher temps.
