    F-150 2-Cab

    As opposed to king cab or lumberjack cabin.

    I needed to haul off some branches that met with gravitational forces and lost, for the past few months. So U-Haul it was.

    I don't know what year or what mill, it was definitely a V8 and definitely an automatic. And I didn't wring it out within an inch of its life to see what she had. I drove it like 90% of the vehicle-aimers I see on the road drive. Except I wasn't texting or talking and I always used my turn signals.

    So it's up high to hop into this thing. And the dash and controls are all new. And it has the column shifter, a victim of uncoolness discrimination in our modern world.

    But all my impressions further cemented my long-held belief that these big trucks are simply updated sedans of the '60s and '70s, with more weight, more power, better MPG, better reliability, and bigger tires.

    Smooth easy power, I can feel the torque from the git-go. Good old V8 torque. The automatic is very smooth, almost seemless. The truck/car rides very smoothly, as smooth or smoother than our car-cars. The outside mirrors must have about the same frontal area as my Soul's entire front end. Yooj mirrors give a yooj view, which is good.

    The air was pretty good, though the controls weren't quite as simple as those on our Soul and PT Cruiser. The radio wasn't too difficult to re-tune from whatever noise the parking lot banditos had tuned it to, to WJR or WSTD.

    The back end holds lots of junk, but as I looked at my wood pile I knew it would be two runs to relocate the branches to the wood recycler. I pay them to take it, then people pay them for the chipped wood. Good deal.
    I guess I should've rented a box truck.

    So that's it. Comfortable, powerful, smooth, modern HVAC and radio/whatever, good view out. The '60s, updated.

    2-Cab . I miss the good old daze when we had Crew cabs and Extended or Club Cabs.

    Two man cab. Two person. It'll take three but the middle doesn't look too comfortable. Not like a bench seat of Olden Days.

    Thanks, that would be a Regular Cab truck then. They are becoming a rarity any more it seems.

    Yeah, fitty-eight, I WAS going to say "standard cab" but everything I see on the road is a four-door raised and squared off sedan. I mean, pickuptruck. 'Scuse!

    That seems to be the new standard.
