Im a hairs width over 6-foot tall bare foot, usually wear boots so a touch taller. I like to be able to reach into the bed of a pickup and on many production pickups it aint easy.

I got no use for a lift, level, or 37 inch tires.

The big 3 half tons sit way too low to the ground.


Ford made up for it with the super duty’s though.

I’m about to put 37’s on my truck and it only has a level kit


My last chevy half ton had a 4” lift and it almost brought it to the stock height of my Ford F-150


The F250's are the best looking truck on the road IMO.

I drive through huge potholes/washouts on the daily, I have no use for a squatty pickup with the front bumper 4" off the ground. Might as well buy a car.

Sheesh, the top of the tailgate is 5’ tall on my new F350. I don’t want a lift.

Market research. The half tons are low because they need to be easy to get into, easy to park, and fit in a garage, because that's what the suburban housewives and Starbuck sipping metro boys want in a truck. The 250s and up are bigger and more powerful because that's what farmers and ranchers want. The Tundra tried to come in between, and wound up being the jack of all trades, master of none.

You obviously have no clue how many 1/2t F150's, Chevy's, and Dodge's are working in the oil fields of the Permian, by making an idiotic statement like that.

That said, just bought a 2019 F250 to replace it. Needed a larger cab for the family, a 6.5 ft bed, and more payload. No such configuration in the Tundra. If it holds up as well as the 12 year old Toyota did I'll be very happy.


It took you 12 years to get to 200k?

It’s time you start hunting more

grin


Ha, won't argue with that. Work from home for the day job, that's a big reason why. New lease is 5.5 hrs away, that will put some miles on the new one.

My new Toyota Tundra is way better than the last personal vehicle I bought for myself....it was a Ford...1971 Pinto....it did get 30MPG and the 8 track was awesome.

I don't miss it. cool

Simmer down, hot sauce. That they're used extensively in the patch doesn't change their design features. Way more 1/2 ton trucks are bought by suburbanites whose greatest challenge for them will be a weekend trip to Lowes than are bought by oil companies. Thus, why they're built lower and smaller than the 3/4 ton and up trucks.
