I need a bigger cab-which? help!

Ok it's final...I'm sick an tired of cramming my self into tiny vehicles. I'm 6'5" about 200lbs. I can cram my self into most small cars and trucks but I'm fed up with it..I want a BIG truck with a BIG friggn door and a tall windshield so I don't have to duck to see the lights when I stop....

What years/series truck have the biggest cabs...espicially in the older years?

Re: I need a bigger cab-which? help!

On the older trucks (pre 88) the steering column seems to be in the wrong spot for me (big guy, not fat), but that may be due to the fact that I've only driven the non tilt models.

The 88 to 94 style trucks have a real good setup for big guys as far as the steering wheel goes and the cab feels huge.

The 95 and up trucks have that round spaced age look and to me it makes a fullsize feel like an s-10.

If the world were perfect (in my eyes) there would be a truck that meets these standards.

88 to 98 body style
1996 Vortech 350
updated nv4500
6' bed reg. cab 3/4 ton
Solid front axle
1994 dashboard
1995 seats
1995 mirrors

If you're looking for a good cheap to modify offroader you should stick with the 87's and older.
If you are looking for a good 4x4 daily driver I'd stick with the 88 to 94's for your liking of larger feeling cabs.
For a good daily driver 4x4 that gets better mileage and more power than the 88 to 94's I'd say 96 and up.

If you can't live without a solid axle and you still want today's latest technology, and a big cab - buy a dodge.

I love my '94 Ext Cab Z-71. I'm 6'2" and weight anywhere from 225 to 240, haven't weighed lately. I have tons of room. tilt steer too. in between classes if I have to wait like an hour, i'll lay down in the backseat and go to sleep. so if you want room i'd say the old body style Ext. cab.

I'm 6'9" 275-280 I'm one tall lanky guy. And I fit in my truck really well. It's not too small or anything, I wouldn't want anything other than an extended cab for a daily driver. But if I needed to get a regular cab it would be one of the '94+ dodges. The amount of room in them is great. I fit into those really well.
