A truck's truck

Great full-sized truck. I especially like the 6.5ft bed and reverse sensing system. Looks great, drives great, but if you're not used to big trucks, it will be scary the first time you park. Interior is little on the bland side, but that's not why I bought it (maybe better in the more expensive models). Interior storage is the only disadvantage, there isn't any! Gas mileage is typical for a V8. The Flex-fuel engine is cool (although E85 is still too pricey/limited for regular use). It would help to have the cylinder-disabling system that other V8s have. Tows like a dream, you forget the trailer is even there. A word of caution, this truck does not fit in a standard garage.
6.5 ft bed, reverse sensing system (must have), Flex-fuel V8 engine.
Cubby holes for tie-downs and tools (e.g. like Tundra), cylinder disabling system for highway fuel economy, iPod interface would be cool.
