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
6' bed reg. cab 3/4 ton
Solid front axle
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.
