So you expect him to get tight up against the door of the truck next to him? Some parking lots aren't meant for full size trucks and you don't have a choice but to put the tire on the line..I've had to do the same thing already...a douchebag park job is taking up 2 spots..not a guy trying to protect his rig from a door ding

Ok how about we agree on this, full sized trucks are too wide for parking lots.

Plus Raptors are wider than standard f150's. I just park farther out. Walking a little is good for me.

Thats why my truck is almost on the line too, i wasn't really bothered by his parking, this lot is pretty small. If i wasn't parked all the way to one side he probably wouldn't have parked there anyway

We have a raptor on campus that always parks on the grass off to the side or in the corners of parking lots because his truck is literally as wide as the spots themselves.

I'm half setting up a camera in my truck, let's just say I was too focused on how much room he had in his parking spot to notice how close the Dakota in the one next to home was

I park in the back centered on the line taking 2 spots when my beast is in the bed...but like I said...the BACK. Nobody else around. The extra 10-20 seconds of walk time won't kill anyone!

I do it more to prevent scaring people.

It's pretty funny when he's laying in the bed and people come park next to me, when they get out and stand up they're face-to-face with a 100 pound German Shepherd. Lol

Same here. I got a ticket because one I my tires was TOUCHING the line! Not even over it doesn't matter it was the only spot available in the lot and the super duty next to me was way into my spot. They still gave me a ticket too
