I have come here to gain some info and advice.

I drive an '88 chevy crew cab 3+3. 5.4 liter.

Currently in the market for a "one ton" crew cab pickup. I am not wanting a "too highbed on the truck and I don't understand why they have grown so high.

I use my trucks to carry heavy loads every week and I load by hand items as heavy as 200#. That's why I want to save my back by leaning on the gate to get it at an angle.

Glad to have the chance to learn from this body of knowledge.

Good Morning Robert,

Trucks do seem to have gotten bigger, and I've read that the payload on a new Colorado is higher than that of a full size truck in the nineties.

I do know that with Fords, the Dually models are more squat and sit much closer to the ground to assist with hooking up fifth wheel and gooseneck trailers. I would assume Ram and Chevy are the same
