It sure is long!

Nice looking truck...even if it is a ford. Once you are used to the long bed it's not that big of a deal, you'll just have to get used to staying out of tight naneuvering areas and park a little farther from the door. If we go into the city we take dh's camaro because parking the truck doesn't happen too easily down there. I found backing in to spots so you can pull out seems to be easier for me than pulling in and backing out. As for the diesel, well you will love that. Once you hook up to the trailer, you won't be able to wipe the grin off your face. Enjoy your new toy!

Dude, nobody's THAT good. Seriously - awesome truck. That'll pull your 2604WS like it's not even there. I hauled that exact same TT (Flagstaff flavor) with my 3/4 ton short bed Chevy crew cab Duramax / Allison rig and it was a dream to tow.
