"This truck is chock full of clever features that make your life a lot easier when hauling more than just the typical load of air," says associate Web editor Kirill Ougarov. "For starters, the trick folding plastic bed shortener/extender: Folded inward, it comes in handy for keeping small loads (such as half a bed full of power tools) from shifting around, and folded out it keeps eight-foot-long boards from sliding out. And when not needed, it folds nicely to the side and out of the way." Any other likes?
"I'm also a fan of the 'man-step' in the tailgate," notes Ougarov. "It makes getting in and out of the bed much easier, as well as loading and unloading of cargo. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see everyone else copy the idea.
