    Overall size is great. The height, I'd much prefer the truck to be lower in the back. I'll get that taken care of in the near future.

    I thought my 2010 was right size but sprung too high. The 2019 feels like the old F-100 or 90's F-150 size to me but I'll get used to it or get something else.

    Mine is 4 1/2 inches higher in the rear than the front. The tailgate height is also the same as my son's F-150 Lariat 4X4.

    In an ideal world, I'd go with slightly lower, especially in the back. Length is good, and I'd even take slightly longer if the extra length all went to the bed.

    Now that it has been established that most of the dislikes are the height of the rear, how are people with this dislike going to fix this?

    I already did. I boosted the front up 2.5" so it matches the rear. ;)

    My Ranger seems big to me (which it is compared to my Hyundai Accent). But when I park it next to a F-150 I can see it's not all that big. I have absolutely no problem parking it (except straight :giggle:). Love that truck!!!!:inlove:

    The odd thing is, how close they are on paper. '10 is on the left, '19 is on the right. Does not factor in the FX4 steroid package.
