I have a friend who crushed his Ram cab by being too lazy to slide his hitch. Had thinks the Revolution is a GREAT idea!

They say you can't cure stupid, well I guess you can't cure lazy either!
I am lucky that I don't have to deal with the issue, as I have a long box truck. I simply don't like the engineering end of this design. JMHO
Hope it works out for everyone who owns one.

Must be a lot of folks that don't like long beds or Reese wouldn't have designed a special hitch and FR wouldn't be using them. Touche!

It is the demand from city people who want the convenience of a 4-door truck but don't know how to park. I like my long box, as I have room for a huge tool box in the front, then space for my barbecue, some firewood, and some milk crates for standing on to reach stuff, then room behind the hitch for one of our bicycles. Try that with a short box city truck!

You forgot the toolbox!
Mine is full width and 20 inches front-to-back. I pack very well, thank you very much!
And I do have room for your gas cans and generator, and a propane tank if you like.

Not everyone has to or wants to haul a toolbox!

I don't care to support the oil companies any more than I have to.
I only drive as much truck as I need getting 23mpg driving to work.

Not much need for tools when you drive a tundra.

Or a Chevy, haven't carried a tool box since we got rid of our 60 Ford station wagon.
