Since I got my first crew cab I can't imagine even going back to an extended cab. Unless of course I spent time in a city.... cities are not built for CC longbox trucks.
In my extended cab truck I have the seat folded down 99% of the time for storage. I can't imagine that working folks buy short bed trucks.
I like the super cab short bed trucks I see driving around, for sure that's a "work truck." :lol:


As for gas or diesel, I'll never own a diesel pickup till they start putting International straight 6's in them.
There's a lot of older school buses with a 466 and Allison transmission ripe for the picking. A short bed pick up is a ladies truck made for toting the groceries.


If we'd of know this we'd of picked our own cotton.

Love my Cummings 1991 3/4 ton odometer broke, 2003 1 ton 113k, 2014 1ton mega cab...2019 mega cab in but waiting on flat bed to get here. The Cummings will pull.....but they will not hold up to idleing on oilfield locations which dodge will tell you,( remember when in the old oilfield the Halliburton toolman or fishing tool hand would show up on loc pop the hood on the gas fords and be on location for days and no problems) dodge diesels have a good resale value but we have not tried ford or chevy diesel in south Texas or New Mexico for comparison.....but the mega cab is the greatest option there is on the market if you need extra cab room and can give up bed space......the idling repairs are cheaper than the lawsuits if no comfort stations are on location in remote areas .....what is this world coming to ........

Your right that was mean. I should have said throw it in the creek and not my creek. 😝
😂🤣😭👏🏽
And don't park it in our driveway if you come to visit. You can park it down the road and walk. I don't want anybody seeing a Ford at my house, that be entirely to embarrassing. 😂🤣😭
I like my Chevy Dmax!! I want the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD. 😋💦 (that's me drooling) I'll have to wait a while before I can afford that.

They are putting 37x12.5s on the new 2020s completely stock. It comes with 34s factory. That is crazy.

I tried to text my guy about a 19 2500 gas but they are hard to find. He sends me a pic of a 2020 diesel. :( They have awesome discounts on the 19 diesels though.

Wonder what a new 2020 Chevy 3500 Duramax Dually in an upper trim level is going to cost? I’ve seen a few 2500’s on the road and they look nice. Not sure why but Chevys have always felt weak to me. Not power wise but they just don’t feel like they’ll hold up to years of pasture use. I’ve had great luck out of Dodges since 2000, now I’ve got 2 Fords.

Ford sold me a 2003 6 Uh Oh. I'll never buy another Ford in my life time.

I've been through 3 GMCs. Still have the Ford 1 ton. Maybe 1,000 miles a year dragging the G/N around. Bought the new boss lady a GMC too. Every time I took the Ford in, the dealer could not find anything wrong with it. 8,000 miles out of warranty, all hades broke loose.

Edit: I need to do the "bullet proof" conversion on it. They tell me its about $3500

I have heard that deleting (bullet proofing) them is really helpful.I drive Ford trucks and my wife drives Chevy Tahoes/Suburbans.
