I'm not quite 6' so I stand in the bed for the back half and use a step ladder for the front half and back-middle of the hood.

I'm only 5'11" and I can't even reach the center of the hood on my 2017 Longhorn 1500 even when the air suspension is on "Entry/Exit" level. I bought one of these steps that fit over the tires to step up enough to give me reach to the center of the hood and windshield. I used a microfiber mop head too from the bed to get at the roof.

This step is pretty darned handy, but its HEAVY.

I'm 6'8" so I can just reach the center of the roof on my tip toes.

I have a 2011 Ram 1500 Sport sitting on a 3” body lift and 6” suspension lift. I’m 5 foot nothing and use a step ladder for the front part of cab and hood. I use the bed for the back half of cab.

I use Maguries wash/polish/wax and she’s rolling Crystal most days. lol
