Shopping for a pickup to replace my 'burb.
Chevy doesn't make a full crew cab/6.5' bed in the 1500 and the
2500 is overkill for the application.
Before I buy an F150, I'm trying to rationalize the smaller crew
cab (the one with the suicide doors: two fewer posts in a
rollover) - supposedly even more of a death trap than no crew bco
the longer roof span.
Guy at the Chevy dealer couldn't say anything about the "Rollover
Protection" part of "Side Airbags w/Rollover Protection" listed
on the sticker, but he did make a claim that there was something
unique about the latest Chevy's cabin strength. The term
"Hardened Steel" was used.
Googled for awhile, and all I've come up with so far is that some
testing agency determined that Chevy's small pickups had the
poorest rollover survival prospects of any truck they tested.
Can anybody shed some light?
