Exclamation help, the "Manly Step" is too high (is it supposed to be so high?)

Its simply to get into the back of the pickup with no load, but when you are carrying heavy boxes trying to get onto the manly step on the pickup is like an attempt to scale Mount Everest. The Ford engineers should have taken the statement "white men cant jump" into consideration when designing this precarious pedastal. Not all of us are born with the power to take massive leaps like Michael Jordon. Personally, it is my opinion that Ford should have designed a telescoping staircase by which one could ascend to the pickup bed while carrying a heavy load.

You think it's high on the F150 you should check it out on the F350, you need a step to reach the step!

So why don't you put the "heavy load" on the tailgate, climb in or out, then pick them up again?

OP, you complain about not being able put a "big load on the back"? Surely you should be used to it by now...



Too soon?
