    Soooo, if you could pick one of the following for your truck...which would it be?

    Air conditioning
    Power mirrors
    A retracting power step to make it easier getting in & out of the package car

    I'm torn personally....

    Sonny, you're lucky you don't have one of the old Ford (or GMC) 800's with an 18-24 inch step, no power steering, standard with the low-back seat that cut into you back right above your belt-line.

    Damned spoiled kids these days.:angry:

    Sounds like the rattletrap I did my road test on. I said to the sup "Ug, no power steering." He replied,"You're the power steering."

    Try driving one for twenty-plus years.
  6. Not quite 20 but put many miles on a old 800 and old 500.

    Great idea the power mirrors.Imagine if they both automatically pulled in at each stop.
    Great for tight pothole filled alleyways,and fewer hit while parked.
    ​I LIKE IT!!!

    You can keep all 3 in exchange for me not having to pay for my benefits and a $1/year increase in pay over the life of the next contract.

    We still have at least a dozen of those old P800's in our center. We call em cripplers.

    This should probably be a new thread, but when I got one of the Ford 500's with the 'twin i-beam' front end, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Huge difference over the GMC's.

    Neither I like the one I have. They have come a long way. Maybe a cigarette lighter for a car charger.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Don't know I it's been said but heated mirrors are what I'd like.

    An air ride seat would be nice too.

    I'm really disappointed in all you guys.... as I was reading through all your choices.... I could not help but notice the BrownCafe ad with the hot looking girl....

    SO..... if I could pick any one of the following options for my package car it would definitely be the following:

    On second thought........ I think UPS may have installed this option for the sake of keeping drivers out late without complaining.... She is being offered as your new year round "jumper option"... By the Way..... they do come in pairs...
