    The new F150s look pretty good. Just too big for me. Hope it treats ya well.

    6"5 is a little too big for the Tacoma.

    I hope it's a diesel because that is the only Dodge truck I would buy.

    Good luck with the new truck. I had a '99 F-150 before I migrated back to Toyotas. It was a damn nice truck, but I love my Tacoma more. The only thing I miss is the captain's chairs.

    It's got LSD man.....
    You get the 2 valve or the 3 valve 4.6? I personally would've opted for the new 5.0. The 2 valve 4.6 makes like 15hp and 30ft/lbs over the Taco's 4.0, not worth it to me for the hit in economy

    I can see where the taco would be kinda cramped for a big guy. Kinda narrow in the cab. I'm an average size guy at 5'10 175. So it suits me just fine. Congrats on the ford. Hope it serves you well.
