|F-150 with older Ford on Trailer|
The picture of the new pickup with the old pickup on the trailer shows how much they have grown over the years. Whenever I see a commercial for any of the new trucks on TV, I can't help but think how fucking bloated they have become. It's time they went on a diet. Maybe they would eat less if they were a little smaller. They have plumped up, the bodies are taller, and wider now. Being taller means it's harder to reach things in the box. The other year I saw an ad by Ford about how it had a step under the front side of the box that would swing out for you to step on and enable you to reach into the box easier. Now that's an idea that could be adapted to older trucks too. Dodge has an idea that makes me ask "What the fuck took them so long???" It's the toolboxes built into the top of the sides of the box.
Another thing I don't care for in the ads is that all of the pickups are four door models. IMHO only a contractor needs a four door pickup to haul his minions around to the jobsite so they can do the work while he either sits on his ass and watches or goes elsewhere so his employees don't see him fucking off!!
