    I see a trend. The stretch crowd is in the I don’t care what you drive camp. Mean while the haters keep doin these drive bys, but they don’t care right. And the haters say there is all this crying but I haven’t seen it. Nor have I seen pics of this wonderful FLD with this great big cam and used drive tires cuz he don’t use it much.......but seems to run it every day.


    Shot in the dark but some one is struggling in the truckin bidness. Wonders HTF a guy can make the kind a money it takes to doll one up. Says if I could do that I #### sure wouldn’t waste it on a truck but I can’t and I’m mad about it.



    Course I’m prolly wrong wouldn’t be the first time

    I assume you're not lumping me into being a hater. If so. You've clearly not read what I've said.

    Maybe I’m weird but I have over 3000 pics on my phone, mostly of my truck at various places. All I’m saying is that for all of these impossible places there sure aren’t any pics, that’s all.

    What, in your opinion, makes these places impossible if everyone is pulling a 53? You have room to get your 53 in, so why couldn’t someone else do it with 50-60” more more wheelbase? 4 or 5 foot is really a deal breaker at these places? C’mon now.

    LOL yes you are weird. (Kidding)

    Well as an example. That one I mentioned. Were the yard jockey took 20 minutes to get there. I'd tried to do it. But I couldn't. He literally was wiggling it in between the dock and a box truck. With roughly 18" of spare room. If the wheel base had been any longer. It wouldn't have worked.

    But like I've said. Majority of docks you guys are going to be fine. But their are going to be tight ones, too.

    But just like women. Tight ones feel better. LOL

    I'm just learning so I could be wrong, but it seems that taking an extra 5 minutes to park or dock once or twice a day is a fair trade for spending the rest of the time happy.

    This whole thread would be like me asking why guys have deep drop visors or those fiberglass fenders that go clear to the ground almost.

    I can't stand either. I'm too tall to be comfortable with my seat on the floor, and I need to chain often in the winter, and I go off road.

    Those things aren't for me, but I respect the guys that have them for having a bit of pride in their ride.

    It's kinda like when anteaters first came out. Nothing uglier ever. But over time we all grew accustomed to them, and it really didn't and doesn't matter what a guy drives, if he takes a bit of pride in it and doesn't have a dashboard loaded with crap and his foot on the dash it's all good to me.

    But I'm still learning every day.

    I would say this.

    Don't feed the trolls.

    If you like what you drive excellent. Having major issues with someone else's ride or belt choice is a personal issue.

    But since you guys seem to like wrestling with enormous things maybe you can tell us all how you'd like to wrestle with this:
