    Okay so quick summary. Bought my truck when I was 15 at 6'0. I fitted perfectly in it. But I kept growing. Now I'm 19 and at 6'4 almost 6'5 and still growing and room is getting alittle tight. I've mentioned this to my Dad who also is tall and knows where I'm coming from. He said we can look at some bigger trucks so I can have more room and feel more comfortable. I love my truck as if she was my own child and I always say I'm never gonna sell my baby. But now I'm considering letting her go.

    I want yalls opinion on this whether I should man up and deal with it or get a bigger truck.

    Im considering a Tundra 05-current gen, older sequoia, 2001 Dodge ram 5.9. All will be 4x4.

    A mod will move it if you ask.

    Oh man since I saw the movie twister when it first came out ive been in love with that generation ram. I found a nice one, dark blue slt Laramie with a sfa leather etc.

    And respectfully Im not a major ford fan, yes they have gotten better but not for me. Funny enough my dad said what about this truck and he pointed to a new f250 in a parking lot lol

    I like those too for sure. Got the trusty 4.7. I'm trying to get a truck where my parents won't have to spend any money on, like get one cheaper than my truck so my folks can make alittle money lol

    Yeah I always loved that style of Ram too. Well do it if you want to but be prepared for a nice gas bill especially if it is a 5.9.

    My friend had a 99 or 00 2500 4wd 5.9. It would spin 37 inch tires on the street with no problem with stock gears. He ran over a Chrysler Concorde so it got totaled.

    I traded my 97 dodge ram 1500 LB Reg cab 5speed with the small v8 for my Taco. I was getting about 17mpg in that. I'd go 1st gen Tundra, I dig those trucks.
