Why do I suspect that your bark is a lot worse than your bite?

I would miss the storage. My cupholders get used for small parts, and it's nice to still have enough to cover for actual drinks. Plowing would probably tip the scales for me though.....
If we could get a truck engineer with a tractor engineer, we could have a truck with fully modulated shifts, between reverse and drive. In the tractor world it's called shuttle shift.
I would say the 6r and 10r are capable already. Depends if the Master clutch is up to it.
That would make for nice plowing. What do you guys think ?

I didn't think of that. We could design an add on shuttle shift unit along the same lines as a gear splitter/ OD box. Just set the column shifter in the desired gear and go. We'll make millions.

You should have seen how we rolled as young children. My step dad thought a crew cab, long bed was too long and the super cab was not yet invented. So, he made a bench out of plywood, some padding, and a roll of vinyl that ran down the passenger side of the truck. My step brother, step sister, and I rode there on camping trips up to 3-4 hours away. No stopping but we did have a "pee jar" to take care of bathroom breaks. My sister always cried fowl at that one since an empty peanut butter jar wasn't quite sufficient for her so she had to hold it...

LMAO, we always urged her to give the jar a try! We even offered to turn around...

Frankly, I don't think she should be underestimated. Right now, she's a bigger threat to her own party than to Republicans but I think in time the traditional Democrats are in trouble when the new wave of younger, much more radical socialists attempt to take over the party.

It bothers me that no democratic women would stand during the SOTU address when the President wanted a bill to prevent 3rd trimester abortions. Any woman who could kill their child during that period is truly heartless, let alone at any time during pregnancy in my opinion. It bothers me that most democrats stayed sitting when Trump announced the US would "never be socialist." The fact that they remained seated tells me there are a fair number of persons in Congress that would be OK with a socialist government in the US. This really sickens me and concerns me with the future of our great nation. I'm no radical, but there may come a day when Americans who think alike and value freedom and liberty may have to stand together...
Something to think about. It was not too many years ago that Nobama was unheard of also.


Another upcoming post turtle! Do all you can to get her de-railed NOW!

I don't believe they will change the age requirement for president before 2020. So, her threat comes after that. However, we need someone intelligent that can reel off facts rapid fire to debate her. When Ben Shapiro offered to debate her and she ran scared, that was telling. We can't have a Tump type debate her with bravado and bluster. We need a Candice Owens type. We need a Dan Crenshaw type. A Ben Shapiro type. Someone who has the facts and has excellent recall when on the spot. If Trump manages to hold on another 4 years, the folks will be done with the bluster and attitude. So, if the conservatives want to hold on they will need someone articulate and intelligent that can keep their cool. Otherwise....
