Sorry if I missed it, but what does real doors mean? Crew cab? My Ram quad cab has 4 real doors, but the rear seating isn't so real compared to a crew cab.

FWIW, I'm thrilled with the Ram in my sig if that helps.

Lol @ guys calling trucks less than 10 years old with 100,000 miles “long in the tooth.”

I say keep what you got. You would probably never get out of it what you put in. As others mentioned, unless you need the larger cab for kids or something of that nature, keep your truck.

I had a quad cab Ram 1500, while we could make it work with kids, it was painful to use child seats in the back or for adults to sit in there for long trips. So I went to the absolute end of the spectrum now with the Megacab and love it.

Looking at crew cab to facilitate child seats in the back. My wife can do with one behind the passenger seat but one behind me just eats up too much leg room for my 6’3” self.

Then yes, upgrade!! It is painful and as the kids grow, your need for a back seat will too. It was not only uncomfortable but I would say unsafe to have the front seats jammed up so far that you are [censored] near hugging the steering wheel.

I think the crew cabs have a slightly better slope to them, which is critical in safely attaching child seats. They are way more solid. Once the kids are in forward facing car seats you need lots of room still because their legs are too short to bend over the seat edge and stick out.

Like I had said previously, we went to the extreme opposite and got the Megacab. No way I was going to upgrade the truck again as the kids grow. Just watch the little brats try and kick the front seats now!!

Found a nicely loaded and nicely priced 2013 suburban 15000 locally that is VERY tempting. Any thoughts on these vehicles? Other than than the specs on its 5.3 looking a little dated...

I drove around quite a few Tahoe's of that generation and they were a great vehicle. They got decent mileage and they had enough power for what they were.

If I had to upgrade my Tb today, I would look at a used Tahoe of that vintage.

My fiance' bought a new 2017 F150 4x4 Supercrew in July of 17 but it only has 3,600 miles on it since she mostly drives her chevy cavalier commuter car. Obviously no problems to report other than after I changed the oil at the one year mark, It had a loud tapping noise on the driver's side of the engine for a couple of minutes the first time the engine was started a week or so after the oil was changed. I used Motorcraft 5w-20 oil and a Motorcraft oil filter so I'm not sure what that was about. She has the 5.0L V8. It never did that with the original oil fill, even after sitting for a long time before starting it.
