Let me guess...someone suggested you get your work truck wrapped? I don't think that's what they meant!

I don't think they ever made the Quad Steer available on anything but the 1500 series trucks. A buddy of mine has one. The rear wheels don't turn all that much but it does make a big difference in turning radius.

yeah, it's a shame they didn't continue/expand it. the cost was the only reason it wasn't expanded/continued. it's plenty beefy/reliable, though, apparently.

My heavy weight truck 2011 ram crew cab 4500 gets empty 14-17 mpg

Loaded with 3000-4000 pounds of grass and a 20 ft trailer with 2 lazers 10-12 mpg

But with a 52 gallon tank she goes 14-20 work days between fill ups.
