Would need it along with a heap of heel & toe to get it around any bend in the road 8-)
Its only 770mm longer so about 3900mm wheel base.

Ok yeah its long but do rigid trucks with this wheelbase or more have issue with bends in roads ?

Re: Extending due service date

From my experience Ford are very anal about service intervals and maintaining warranty and actively search for any angle to void claim.

But that is in Thailand.

Best to ask your local.
