MAP will be building chassis cabs eventually, I got a peek at a planning board today while I was up in the office taking care of some business.

I'm going to sound stupid here, but I've always wondered - what are the vents in the back of the cabs of trucks for?

From what I gather, they assist positive ventilation flow through the cabin..

Cars have them too they're just normally hidden where you can't see them.   That's what allows you to close the doors with the windows rolled up.

You know, I guess I have seen them on cars without rear bumpers.

Those vents are called baffles. They allow air to escape when closing the doors.....
Anyone here been in an old school VW Beetle when the door gets closed? You ears would almost pop because there wasn't a way for the air to escape. :)

They are gravity vents (or baffles). They stay closed until a positive pressure forces them open (slamming a door), once the pressure is relieved they close again.

That is the US Spec Ranger up front, I didn't expect this vehicle to happen here actually but I knew Ranger would be essential to their growing non-retail business.

And it's also a single cab version in base XL Trim which was the missing piece of the puzzle.

Now the complaining will start that buyers wanting a cheap two door truck can't access it.

 

I'm expecting a tub option for those that want a basic fleet pick up but the chassis versions

will be great for lots of small businesses that have unique needs filled by up fitters

It's still a SuperCab, not a 'regular' cab like below.

needed a physical for a hi-lo license but because the group was so big half of us were sent to medical at final instead of body.

Probably should mention Im no longer in final assembly, and where Im assigned Ill be stamping firewalls for the F-150 for both DTP and Kansas City.

Not sure yet, never been in stamping before. Aside from needing to wear long sleeves and pants which will really suck in the middle of summer stamping sounds a LOT batter than final. Ill find out for sure when I go back for good on 8/6.
