    I have seen a few around my neck of the woods, around SW. Austin and Dripping Springs.

    I doubt the "Ironman" Stewart would have been driving a Ford anyway. :) Though I'd venture to guess that a SCAB Raptor is larger inside than a Crew Toyota mini truck.

    If you have kids and still have a wife, the crew cab is a must. Suicide doors and general space for junk just sucks in an extended cab. I've had plenty of them when that was all that was available, getting a real crew cab was like seeing colors I'd never seen before!

    You've probably seen me. I travel in from Driftwood to the capital every day for work.

    I'll agree to disagree on the crew cab. My wife and 2 kids fit fine. My 2012 SCAB fit them fine for 5 years. This one is doing just the same :)

    Nice! Surprised I haven't seen around on 71. We go to Marble Falls pretty frequently.

    Which is why they don't sell.

    Customer: "Crew cab is huge inside, but the truck has a mighty short bed. Any other options?"
    Saleman: "Well, we have this one. It's a smaller cab and has the same size bed."

    Unless you have a small garage, I just don't see the downside of the truck being 12" longer.

    Have you not driven a SCAB? Like I said before, SCREW wasn't an option in 2011 because Ford thought it too big a compromise of offroad capability. I've driven both on and offroad, and the SCAB handles much better when you get on the throttle. I should say the SCREW is more planted in the rear, which is both good and bad, but all other handling characteristics are better in the SCAB.
