BTW, we have Amp research retractable running boards on our F350. These work great for her to be able to reach up and pull herself in.
She claims she's 5', in her dreams

I traded my wifey 1.0 in 17 years ago for wifey 2.0. Much less complaining well worth the upgrade...

We have a F250 and hubby and I fight over who gets to drive it today. I love it.

I am 5'4'' tall and have no problem getting. We have running boards and grab handles by the door. Its an art to getting in. Good work out!

I get lots of looks from old guys and comments..."little lady, that's a mighty big truck you have". THANK YOU!! (My daily driver is a F150.)

The top of the tailgate is not as high as my head but over the top of my shoulder. I just step up on the bumper to get in the bed. Cleaning the windshield is another story.
