I'm sorry but people calling my truck that drives me bonkers. It's an Extended Cab; not some disgusting covering on a wound that people pick at.

Stop trying to shorten everything to the least amount of syllables or make acronyms out of it! Sheesh.

Really? You enjoy your truck being associated with something akin to a butt sore? :)
I hate the idea. It reminds me of high school pizza that we called elephant scabs because, well, that's what it looked like.

Our high school pizza resembled road rash a couple of days old...but it wasn't the worst thing they ever fed us. Sometimes you just gotta be thankful in spite of what others have to say about something you like.

I agree with everything... except it's not an "Extended Cab"

It's a SuperCab. Embrace your inner Clark Kent

I will give you that. I just don't like the shortened version it gets.

Side note: back when I was a serious DB I used to leave graffiti in bathrooms - "Clark Kent was here"

What I don't understand is that the area where you and passengers sit is called the cab no? And yet a "super" cab is a smaller cab... while the bigger cab is just super crew (I guess so you can have a bigger crew in it)

because once upon a time, when dinosaurs walked the earth, you got a standard cab (no back seat at all) so the current "smaller cab" was super-size by comparison.

Having owned both, I like the 5" bigger door on the SCAB, but like the extra cab space for dry storage on a trip or when someone needs to ride back there which will likely never happen.
Couldn't care less about the bigger bed. Both great trucks, but that name.....:puke:
