    LOL @ "#shortbed regret"
    I just prefer the looks of the shortbed. No regrets at all.

    And thanks for the props on my Vette. I love it.

    Oh ok. The one from my nissan fits, just had to collapse it a little bit. The lock pieces in the tailgate just don't fit. I may just have to pick a set of those up from the dealer.

    Yesterday, got in my truck and my TPMS light was on.
    Walked around to check tires and found this. Worst freakin case scenario.

    [​IMG]

    Right in the sidewall. $250+ nail.

    Also, driving back from Colorado last week I got a bolt from a flatbed hauling junk cars right in my grill. Punctured my a/c condenser so I had to drive all the way across Kansas in 90 degrees and near 50mph winds. What a hot and dusty day.
    Got it fixed in KC, thanks to Jay Wolfe Toyota. Great place, they helped me out big time.
    That was a $1550 bolt. Insurance should cover that one though, minus deductible.

    You can see the green coolant where the hole is.

    Not sure what I did to get all this bad luck.....

    Ouch! I am not a huge fan of the looks of grillcraft, but I do like the functionality of it. The radiators will last a lot longer without all the rocks hitting it, and bugs stuck in it.

    It's tough. With my last job we had GSA vehicles. Hardest thing I did was a crew cab 3500 long bed with a single axle trailer. It's such a huge truck and a short tongue'd trailer that jackknifed on a dime.

    Good thing I grew up with boats, or I would have failed that.

    I don't support the fact that the dictionary has changed the meaning of this word. You are literally using it wrong.

    My last work truck... C7500 with tool bed and 60ft man-lift.

    Try backing up a compressor that is 3ft narrower than the truck with only side mirrors.
    That was fun backing up.
    Our wire trailer was better being longer , but still 2ft narrower than the truck.
