i like parking next to rangers too. I get used to the size of my truck and sitting next to a stocker reminds me how much better off i am

I like to park next to those smart cars and miatas, makes my stocker look bigger.
I stay away from full sized trucks, makes me feel self-conscious.

speaking of smart cars met one on the highway, he kept trying to go faster than me, I just let him on by... IMO those things are just too small...

I wouldn't mind that Splash, but it would go lower.

I've seen a couple of those little cars riding around. I'd feel like a rabbit in the midst of a horse stampede driving one of those around other cars.

Lone Ranger 93 - I haven't mentioned it in your posts in a LONG time but you still have my favorite Gen 3. I'd go into detail what I like but I'll cut it short, I like the entire thing & all the details. Just so ya know, I'm pretty picky but that is a beautiful truck man.

I wasn't trying to show parking or anything even tho you can park in a spot smaller then that since you are allowed to back them in instead of parallel park, just showing the metal cage and how you can see it from outside. I don't like smart cars either, they are only practical for citys and don't get that great of mileage. They are roomy inside tho, I am 6' 2" and fit in one with plenty of room.
