2009 Dodge Ram: A Delicate Question

August 20, 2009

Dodge Ram Step Up

I'm not sure how to ask this while still maintaining some level of decorum, but here it goes. How do you climb into a tall full-size truck without crunching the business?

If I go one leg in/up, as I would in any othervehicle, thatends with the, er,gents landing first on the edge of the seat. I've tried other forms of ingress using the grab handle to hoist myself upward first, but that alwaysends with some awkward folding procedure between the door, opening,wheel and seat. Maybe there is no easy way of getting into a tall truck.

Because of this, I'm not sure if shorter people would have an easier or harder time climbing aboard the Ram. But I do know that women would find it less, er, crunching.
