I want one that self cleans the dirt off the running boards. I'd prefer that the most.

So I'm seriously the only one that would totally go for a built in mini fridge? As opposed to lugging around a cooler all the time? Sign me up!

BTW my husband simply latches the seat belt, shoves it under the seat & he's good to go.

I put a flatbed on my Ram last year. Love it. One of those thing I wish I had done 10 years ago. My bed and tailgate were both bashed in from hitting them with the goose neck when driving over a terrace.

I refused to drive it off the lot with the key in the ignition chime or the seatbelt chime. They crawfished for over an hour and then finally declared they would give me a schematic and tell me which wires to snip. I went home in the old truck. They got to keep it. Two weeks later they were giving me grief in a restaurant and I told them I'd just buy elsewhere in the future and they shut up.

On my dodge and also a ford you just read in the owners manual and it tells you how to turn them off its with the key and the seatbelt. Very simple to do, no cutting wires or any of that the ford I turned off the dodge the dealership turned off.

I know that feeling.... bought a new Dodge Cummins in 2010. I can now say I've had two Dodges. My first and my last. Same truck.

I am a vote for a simple base truck...
no electric anything to go wrong....windows mirrors seats etc.
simple vinyl floor mats....no carpet....
same with the seats....
ability to take the water hose and wash the truck out...
Four in the floor and decent power to pull a trailer....
and a reasonable price...
