I've noticed something about the trucks uploaded here. Most real-life trucks (just your average single-cab) is probably about 12-13ft long. However, most of the trucks (if not all) that fit that description here are at least 18-19ft long. I could be wrong, but I thought I'd bring it up. I'm not suggesting a complete make-over of the way trucks are made, just saying...

I think tires and handling are behind that. If you made a 12ft truck, it would look disproportionately tiny in the game. That said, some of the ST trucks are probably closer to the real world as far as size goes.

Ok, so I might have been misleading. I recently heard that an average truck (Single cab, long bed) is about 15-17 ft. long. That's no where near my original estimate. Sorry about that.
