For those who don't think the height of pickup trucks has gotten out of control.Stock height on both.
>>24196465You know you can hold a phone at multiple heights, and the best angle to show the height of the bed is even with it?
>>24196465>it is OK to have to lift shit higher and higher into the bed because fuck short guys lmao
No higher than past 4x4sThe only difference is in the past 4x4 and 2wd had difference heights since the 2wd didn’t need the extra height.Today with part commonality, safety regulations and fuel economy regulations all trucks need to be the same general height so that manufacturers don’t have to do double the tests for everything, and have two different sets of suspension components.
What's the best fold away ladder to get into beds when the tailgate's down? Not even a manlet but I'm getting fatter and can't just make a giant step into truks like I used to.
>>24196465>comes stock with a step in the bumper so you can get to the bed and steps so you can get into the cab.If the steps are down there, the bottom of the bed/cab could be down there.
Are you fucking retarded?this is a stock 1977 f250
>>24196912>what is ground clearancego buy a crossover, cuck.
>>24196683A gym membership.
>>24196459Why don't talll pickups have pop-down headlights?
>>24196951A stock tallboy, yes, but you don't see anyone claiming Power Wagons or Raptors as exemplary for modern pickup trucks either.
>>24197322A stock 1976 PowerWagon is about the same height as that tall boy As mentioned a 2wd and a 4wd used to use to different suspensions with different heights.Now everything uses the 4wd height.
>>24196459It really hasn’t, yeah vehicle are taller than they used to be but whatever, even with a 2 inch lift I can still fit in parking garages in a full size truck.
>>24196478Ground clearance height, no. Actual truck height, yes. Compared to '70s truck, the same model new is like standing next to a wall of truck.>>24196951First, those aren't stock tires. That truck would have been sold with the equivalent of a 235/75. Second, I'm gonna say that truck does have an aftermarket lift. Mine came from the factory with a lift and your pic is sitting higher off the wheels.
>>24197322Highboys aren't really very high. But Ford gave the 4X4 F150s a 4" suspension lift compared to the 2wd trucks like your pic. This is my 100% stock '77 F150 on original-size tires. The difference is so big I wonder if the one in your pic has been lowered.
>>24197360Yeah, I was born in '75 and there was nothing like that driving around when I was a kid. The claim that all trucks looked like this is hilarious>>24196991
>>24197405>eah, I was born in '75 and there was nothing like that driving around when I was a kid.Now that I don't buy. They didn't come that way stock but guys into the truck scene would put lifts and desert tires on their trucks just like guys today do.
>>24197444There was no truck scene. Trucks were for work.
>>24197935Sure, and I bet you think there was a donk scene in the 1950's.
>>24197924>No truck scene>literally factory truck scene since truck scene was such a big thing
>>24197949>bigNope.Trying to start something isn't the same as it being already ever-present. Trucks were for work, not $80,000 penis analogues.
>>24197924Pretending to be an oldfag only works if you get it right. I was a child in the mid '80s and stuff with lifted trucks going back to the early '70s was all over the place.
>>24197972Ahh that’s right those shitbox Civic enthusiasts are an illusion since Civics can’t cost $80k
>>24197983>off-road racing means a street scene.Sure, I remember all those F1, Indy, and Nascar cars going by on the highway, too.Trucks were for work, and they meant you were poor.
>>24196459That ground is steeply-sloped and fucking up the perspective.
>>24198025It's not. The bed is the same height as the roof of my car.
>>24198007You're an idiot. The 1970s were when a dedicated truck scene was starting. They weren't in every driveway like today, but getting an F150 in 1978 and slapping on a set of big desert tires on white wagon wheels and going off into the dunes wasn't unusual for people into that stuff.
>>24198036"Starting," is not, "Every truck is lifted wearing 33's"99.9% of trucks were for poor people doing manual labor.
>>24196683You get a tailgate that folds all the way down and has a step in it.
>>24198045How fuck thick and/or autistic are you? You said you never saw anything like that on the street. I'm saying they were on the street. Now you're backpedaling trying to say I meant every truck was a lifted brodozer. Fuck off with your forced memes.
>>24198063May have seen one down south when driving to Disney World. How does that prove that every truck was lifted?
>>24198076Are you an ESL speaker? Nobody in this thread said that.
Reminder what was a "Monster Truck" worthy of exhibitions is now just your typical redneck's daily driver.
>>24198101Yes? Both of those posts say lifted trucks existed within a subculture, not that they were in every driveway like you're pretending. Are you schizoposting on purpose?
>>24198135Bro, you're unironically not making any sense. You're imagining something in this thread.
>>24196459you have to be over 6' to post here
>>24196474>fuck short guys lmaoyes
>>24198125based, fuck short "men"
>>24196459i used to have an EG hatch that i lowered maybe 2". when i parked next to my co-workers new camry we basically reproduced that image, except his trunk was that trucks bed. even cars are fucking tall now
>>24196474lol little pussie if your not 6 5 your dont is matter at all looser gay
>>24198234I'm going to wager you're just bad at perspective. You probably noticed you were ~8 inches below his roof and so were closer to his trunk height, but you were probably still 4 inches above his trunk.
>>24198074The seats were terrible in those trucks. Like sitting on a bench with a layer of foam and cheap vinyl cover.
>>24200035>Like sitting on a bench with a layer of foam and cheap vinyl cover.It _IS_ a bench with a layer of foam and a cheap vinyl cover. I own one.
>>24200035Everything was terrible in them.
>>24196912well i like the steps down there and the cab up here.
>over compensation the vehicle.>80 percent of new big trucks only get driven as commuters/ grocery getting
>>24200613>Litteral shoebox on wheelsI knew Amerimutt were terrible at car design, but holy shit.
I have just the truck for you, OP!
>>24201215Is that even taller?There's nothing to give it a sense of scale. If those steelies are 13's then that's about right for a truck.
>>24201221No one makes cars with trailer wheels anymore
>>24196478This is what bothers me, I miss 2wd Japanese pickups riding so low, made it easy to load shit in the back since you don't have to lift it so fucking high off the ground
>>24200613I think I just threw up a little bit
>>24201258They were fun, too.
