Please for the love of god, drop the bed height and bedside heights of the F-150 truck. For anyone that actually does real construction work, unless you are 6'6", you can't get any tools in and out of the truck without climbing in and onto the bed to load and unload tools. It is a complete pain. My family has owned Ford trucks for multiple generations and have not bought a new one since they had a 91 model....which my dad kept for 20+ years and reluctantly sold it maybe 3 years ago.
My dad and brother are 5'10 and 5'11 respectively, which is above the average male height of 5'9" and both still have a hard time with the newer F-150s. My brother has a 2005 Dodge Dakota that he works out of now, only reason is that it is lower to the ground and can reach over the side of the truck bed with ease.
My youngest brother is 6'2, bought a new 2012 F-150, which is used mainly to drive to job sites and load large equipment from time to time...and still is inconvenient for him as well. He keeps a 98 Ford F-150 beater that he loads most of his tools and equipment into.
Any model after that 97 series sucks to do actual construction work out of....I guess anything newer is made for those that like to drive around and pretend to do actual construction work.
