Was at dealer today lookin' at cargo vans. No 2017s on the lot but did look at a 2018 118WB/LR and noticed a molded-in grab handle for entry passenger and driver. Were these on the 2017s? They were just right for me to pull myself up into cabin, mucho likee. My wife at 5'3'' had to stretch to reach it though. Not low enough for her by about 2 inches. However she could stand up in the cargo area with abut 1.5 inches to spare under the lowest rib, very nice. I had to just slightly slouch, my normal at home stance. If I stood straight up at 5'7" I just brushed the highest part of the naked roof between the ribs but had to slouch to miss the rib. Looks like it's gonna be just fine for our needs. Dealer is setting me up with a day loaner as soon as he has one like I want so's I can see if I like driving the shorter version and see if it fits under my carport. The one we looked at was sold already. Still haven't ruled out the longer 136WB/LR. So far Covert Dodge in north Austin has been very helpful allowing us to spend time in their vans measuring and takin' photos and answering questions. The dealer in South Point Dodge in south Austin close to where we live wasn't interested in helping me. Nada. OH yeah almost forgot, the black vinyl seats are a no go for us. We opened the door and the sun hit the passenger seat and in a very short time they were very hot! So looks like cloth seats will have to be it. Did have the Nexen tires on it. $33,000 including options.
