Solid front axles in 4x4 If you want a nice ride thats what they make cars for. Floor vents and wing windows so some freash are can get in. Put gutter back on the roof I hate snow or rain dripping on your arm. Real tires why should you have to replace tires on a new truck. You can get fords and dodges with big tires. A real bench seat so you can sit 3 people with out 3rd guy sitting on little seat in middle. Why are the cup holders in between the middle guys legs? center seat don't fold so you can put Storage behind seat.


Last why can you only a 3500 HD in 2WD but I think they drop that now too. You can a Ford in a F 450 superduty

Well then go buy a F**d and stop bitching. I love my truck and would not drive anything else. Well except for a Porsche.

I'm pretty sure you can get a 3500 in a 4wd now that they have the single wheel 3500 out. I priced one out at the dealer a couple weeks ago so actually I'm possitive.


I do wish they made solid front axels still though, nothing to do with the ride but they only cost about 1/4 as much to lift.

Glove box, floor, under hood, and out side mirror's puddle lights. Or give a Mag-Light with free batterys for a year.

Sunvisors that actually block the sun(front & side) and a flat floor on the passenger side. Oh, and seats that can be adjusted back far enough that my knees don't ache after three hours of driving(I'm only 5'9"), and seatbacks that recline....all the way. And another thing, mirrors that actually show you what's behind you. Other than that, don't change nothin'.



P.S. I liked the extra lighting mentioned above....add that back.

Can't you just take the stops out of the seat to make it recline all the way? I've heard of this but never actually seen it. I'm going to do more research on it when I get my next truck. Current truck is a leaser so I don't care about this one

Nobody has mentioned the fuel tank sitting in the cab behind the seat, I guess nobody misses that one.
LOL

Seatbacks that recline all the way? I thought the goverment made auto manufactures stop that to keep the population down.
