    That's like asking "how hot does it get in the summer?"

    before you dedicate your uninformed mind to a particular make of truck you should spend some time driving them.

    Although this is just your opinion, freightshaker earned their name, personally I'd take any Pete over any freightshaker, Pete's hold their value much better, look much nicer, but that's just my opinion

    I always liked the older Pete's ( or older KW's) so I could roll the passenger side window down without getting up and walking across the room. It was a cozy, comfortable feeling. If you are claustrophobic, it may not be the best for you. The 359/379 are excellent trucks. I mean, look at some of the Pete's in these peoples signature pics. The pride of ownership shows. Certainly not some salt covered Volvo. Also, not sure about the newer generation of Pete's and KW's, but if I drove a truck again, it would have to be an older Pete.

    Spacious and Pete should never be used in the same sentence.

    depends on what you plan on doing with it....



    I'm six foot eight tall the last Pete I bought was a flat top 379...

    but I'm one of those "if I'm not driving I'm sleeping guys"....YMMV

    This is along the lines of asking a woman how big is too big...

    What is that joke? you always have a suntan on both arms because the cab is so narrow you can rest your arm out the window on both sides? Lol
