2) Size... Today's mid-size truck is about the physical size of the full size trucks of 15-20 years ago. They have plenty of cab room (especially crew cab versions) with respectable payload and towing numbers. Bigger isn't always better. Posted by: Brian in NC | Sep 19, 2018 1:59:57 PM WRONG! when towing a heavy trailer BIGGER IS BETTER. (weight) Numbers on a piece of paper does NOT tell you the full story. How does the vehicle handle the weight.(control, sway etc..) My power wagon has a less towing # than some 19 Ram 1500's but i can guarantee you it feels a lot more confident towing the same weight. You can't deny physics and the heavier larger vehicle will always be safer in a crash. Already been proven. Down side parking and gas milage.
"Diesel is one possibility. Hybrid is another. Hard to image a Hemi option, but it would sure make some waves." Posted by: papajim | Sep 19, 2018 8:16:16 AM Your kidding right. Class creating Chrysler was the only mid size truck with a v8. 360 Magnum. Not hard to imagine at all for folks who know Chrysler products.
Ha,Ha, Furd & Chebby ain't got nothing on this off road legend. True Military truck unlike Furds wanna bee. lol Ram is the first name in 4x4. Absolutly luv my 15 Prospector power wagon and have wanted one since i was 6 when my dad test drove one. Tows my 10,000 lbs tow hauler off road soft sand dunes where Furd & Chebby's don't dare to go. lol Seen pics of guys towing R.V's in feet of snow. The truck of trucks. A lot of pavement pounders out there so they don't sale a ton of them. With one ton axles and an 11.5 inch ring gear this baby is almost bullet proof. Hill decent is my favorite feature. Drives itself down steep snow or mud covered hills. I have pulled and winched Furds and Chebbys and Jeeps out. Started charging them after the ninth recovery in the same day. When you absolutly have to get there wind,rain,sleet,mud & snow this is your truck. Lots of posers out there. This is the real deal. For over 70 years civilian market. It's the only vehicle made whith a 12,000lbs winch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTOR-qcN60w https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWgitFwRaK0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slncjmTY-WI Class creating Ram trucks.

Ford say's stop driving them. I stopped in 1996. After my Rustang caught Fire. I just don't park anywhere near a Ford. Never buy another one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkLw-sCQEFM
intead of piping in glorious sounds of a v8 in the cab. Will Ford add Harley engine sounds to drown out the sewing maching 3.5?

YOU CAN'T HAVE THE GLORY MY FRIENDS, IF YA AIN'T GOT THE GUTS! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gphrr67XJ7o
wouldn't the blue koolaid crew want Ford to add a FIRE suppression system like the ones used in NHRA or better at an extra cost to you? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXzlpc3Hs6E At least you would have something to fix when its done burning. I guess Fords ok with it. They just sale you another one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slncjmTY-WI FORD ADVISED NOT TO DRIVE THEM. I STOPPED IN 96.

That XLT interior in this Larit looks like a low budget fleet queen special from Hetz, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkLw-sCQEFM
You gotta love that front suspension! No beam axles for me thank you Posted by: papajim | Jul 23, 2018 7:14:10 Thats why it's a light weight H.D.
The one that makes the most noise while going the slowest. Posted by: Harvey | Jul 22, 2018 6:03:33 PM The one made of steel? The one where the frame doesnt twist like a pretzel? I guess it depends what your looking for in a heavy hauler. lol
