Funny...When I was test driving I drove an F250 CCSB and the guy had me drive in circles around a light pole in an empty parking lot to show how awesome the turning radius was...By the numbers my Ram 2500 CCSB has something like a 6 foot smaller turning circle.

What I really found interesting though is that there's NO STANDARD in the auto industry for what turning radius / circle actually means!
