Definitely some good cookies.

It's only got 350 KM on the clock- so I will post something up after I get some more seat time.

I don't have the wheel well humps to get around either- so that helps. I have a utility trailer for hauling lumber and supplies that I was already using, so it was an easy trade off for me.

I'll get back to you on that!
I have an ATV that I haul from time to time. With the bigger tires, I believe it's 49" wide. It fits fine in my F150 with the tailgate almost completely closed with a 6 1/2' bed.

Appreciate any information.

I've been on the Ram side for several years now. They truly have been the best Trucks I've ever owned. Originally my entire family bleed Ford blue, but we began having problems after problems with them and the 1-800# really didn't give a *****. So our problem was solved. We became Ram owners. It wasn't until 2 yrs ago when my brother bought a new problem free F250 and F150 that I considered coming back to Ford. It did take quite a bit of convincing for my wife to agree. There's a lot riding on our new F150 to keep her convinced.

Ram's do have some advantages.

I was very close to getting a Ram Limited. At the end of the day competition is what keeps trucks so close to one another. For me the deal breaker was really just price. At the time the Ford was a better deal and the dealer was super nice. Having never owned a Ford, I decided to pull the trigger and see what happens! I can totally see getting a Ram though. That 2013 interior is so nice! Best of luck!
