My guess is they didn't invent the term "highboy" until there was a "lowboy". I've never seen a badge or emblem with this word on it. Maybe just a case of dealer-speak that made it to the public? Probably not unlike the SuperCrew that gets shortened up to "SCrew" amongst dealer sales staff [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
See, ya learn something new every day! It's like the expidition, a buddy of mine has an older ford and the hood emblem says "Expidition" if someone were to say they had a ?? year expidition you would think hummmmm. SUV.
Ford used "Ranger" and "Explorer" as trim levels on 70's truck as well. Chevy used "Tahoe" on many of the 94-older downsize Blazers. They also used "Wrangler" and "Durango" on some of their 80's pickups.
