Yes, I don't think the 5.5' bed existed until the modern trucks, circa 1997-2003 generation.

Iím trying to get a set of the early King Ranch rims for my truck. Such nice rims those King Ranch versions came with. Levelling kit is a must with these trucks.
Looks so good!!

So, anything carbed is going to be impossible to find with both a short bed and an extra cab.....ugh! I'll settle with the Gen 8's and 9's and still be happy.

Yeah...someone was telling me, the last several years, the new trucks were people's CARS with a bed....they weren't built to work like they were back in the day.

You're right....leveling kit really makes the truck for sure!

They can be.... but if you want a base model truck, you can get the same "workness" out of it. Probably even better.

Buuuuuttt if you want a King Ranch with 6 doors and a 2 foot bed, I'm sure that will come out soon.

I actually thought about that.....my DREAM truck would have been:
-a Gen 6,
-extra cab,
-5.5 ft box,
-automatic,
-ac,
-4wd, manual locking hubs
-3" lift, 33's
-small V8, carb

I told my wife the only way I'd get this is to find someone who had already custom built one or to have someone custom build one for me.....both of which I don't think will happen or have happened already.

How much would it take to build something like that. Not a show truck, but a nice functional truck that would last me 30 years with no problems?
