Am I the only one that thinks Crew Cabs are ugly

It seems everyone I talk to loves crew cabs, but me. I'm not saying I wouldn't own one, and I may buy one, but I think they are ugly none the less.

To each his own. I wouldn't have anything but a crew cab. I think they look the best, and I can get 6 grown people inside the truck without any problems. Not to mention, plenty of room for a lot of things inside the truck. Crew cabs are the best way to go.

I agree they are very useful, and I may get one because of the increased seating. I just think they are ugly.

Too bad Ford doesn't make a F350 6dr truck....they made 6dr trucks in the 550/650 category years ago...not sure they still do....but I bet they would sell some 6 dr f350's if they made them

I like the extra space with seats that fold up, and seatbacks that fold down and probably a little more storage behind the seat than a regular/super cab. Plus my whole family can ride in a crew cab instead of needing a second vehicle. My old truck was a ccsb, and especially after getting a toolbox, I never had enough bed space. My current truck is a CCLB, and I love it. It's not much different. Parking is just a little trickier.

I don't know but when I see a Crew Cab Long Bed it reminds me of an open hearse.

I think the last year Ford made the best looking trucks was in 1997. To me, the old body style trucks look sharp. Having said that, the bells and whistles on the new trucks are great! The only ugly trucks I see on the road are the ones with the sheep emblem on them. They may have horns, but that doesn't help. That goes for both 2 and 4 door models. But many of those drivers use their mirrors to protect the sides of their truck though. Or perhaps it's just that the owners of those trucks haven't figured out those things can be folded in.

That is done by inexperienced drivers that use them like curb feelers.

I've always been partial to a regular cab. It makes it harder buying a truck- not many on the lots. I'd rather have the full size bed than a big cab, and a crew cab with full bed just takes too much acreage to turn around.

Me too. I think a long bed with a regular cab makes for the best looking truck. I usually buy supercabs though because of the behind the seat storage and the better towing capacity.

Anyone know if the rear "seats" can be removed from the supercabs?

My 2002 like that was black with an A.R.E. Z series topper, and it was mistaken for a funeral home vehicle more than once
