im not saying the trucks crap, just automatic in general, i think its a bad idea apart from for people who have issues with hand eye co-ordination

i'm fairly certain most off road racers, mainly short course, run automatics to keep both hands on the wheel. when dealing with 800+ horsepower, jumps, drifting dirt turns, and other trucks fighting for 1st, i'd like both hands on the wheel. and seeing as they do pretty well for themselves both behind the wheel, and while walking around, i dont think they have any problem with hand eye coordination.

That's what the market demands. People want a truck that can hold at least 2 full grown adults with a decent sized bed. The easiest way to accomodate those demands is to make the truck long and wide.

On top of that the extra length helps deal with any added weight in the bed or on a trailer. One more reason is the long open high speed american roads, a longer wheelbase will make high speeds smoother.

And on top of all of that a rather disputable generalization, which I find to be true, is that people who drive trucks tend to be better drivers than the average car driver, meaning they can actually manage to maneuver with the longer wheelbase.

And it does help to be able to see over most other vehicles on the road.

down here i think the most common vehicle is a rediculously lifted superduty, or other auto maker's trucks of similar size. i had one guy just tell me at the gas station the other night that he's getting a 3" body lift and going from 35 to 37" tires since he's tired of other trucks looking down on him.


my favorite part, body lifts are now illegal in the state of CA, and you can get a fix it ticket for having one. finally, a law in this state that doesnt suck.

I haven't heard that. Do you have the vehicle code for that?
