Never said step bumper,
I said bumper step, as in post #23
Sorry I wasn't around for the war, to young :-)

I drive a 2004 GMC Canyon, bought it new. I love driving a truck but I couldn't justify the size of the "full size" models. The irony of the whole situation is that my "little" midsize pickup is almost as big as the full-size pickups I used to drive in the 80s & 90s.

Nobody wins, but you all get a ribbon for participation.

Mom's 58 Benz had a bag on the inside under the dash connected to a push pull button for the window washer. That was luxury heated window washer fluid.

First gen Ranger had exactly the same cab size as a 1956 ford pickup and actually a bit larger box!

The only difference between the 1956 Ford pickup and the 1953-1955 (slant cabs!) are the window areas and ugly dash... oh and that 1956 has a flat, flat roofline and causes the rain drip rail to rust out. But the beds are exactly the same on all four years. Anything else you'd like to know about the first generation F-100s... just ask! Henry's Half-Tons Ltd.

I took a first generation Ranger and cut the cab off at the windshield, removed the doors and cut the back of the cab about a foot off the floor. I then took a 1956 Ford pickup and cut out the floor and the dash. Excellent fit onto the Ranger!

See post #10.

As for myself, I have no issues with a connected car. Especially when it's connected to my Scamp.
