Occurs exactly 0 times in your post prior to the one I responded to.that photo was in my original response to you
and it was not intended to describe scale, but instead to illustrate the different distances I was referencing
More like this would be my observation.thanks, that would be great!
just to clear up what for some reason seems to be confusion over terms:
let’s for present purposes call the “overhang” just the eve trim extending over window - I believe this would a the part you’re referring to being 2-3” - below the tip if the eve closest to tailgate is in YELLOW
then let’s call distance from tip of the eve to window the “distance to window” - the window is indicated in ~GREEN (really the SS trimforward if thr
then finally let’s call the distance from the tip of the eve to the furthest forward part of the bed floor the “distance to forward bed floor” - indicated in RED
From the side, these are roughly the relevant bits that collectively make up the max distance from the forwardmost portion of the bulkhead to the rearwardmost tip of the eve
Here are a couple of pretty nice videos on how it could work. Chevrolet did a great job on the one in their Bolt as just an example.I will admit as a legacy vehicle driver I am heavily dependent on my windshield mounted rear view mirror. I have never even owned a vehicle with back up cameras. Is there a camera view of what the window mounted rear view mirror normally shows visible on the cockpit display full time when driving, or only when reversing?
These pictures make me miss the full width red tail light :-(not following
someone cared about the distance from the rear window to the rearmost edge of the overhang?
in terms of the separate matter of wondering about the encroachment over the bed floor (and so occluding the cargo area proper), the question is about the distance from the forward most edge of the bed, to the rearmost edge of the overhang
This area of the truck has gone though several changes since the Peterson prototype (and so the patent drawing).
The Peterson overhang is less, and its rear window is perpendicular to the ground, and the perpendicular portion of the bulkhead begins far nearer to the bed floor (in red below). Meaning in theory, the bulkhead itself leans less back towards the tailgate, the window itself leans no further to the tailgate, and the narrower eave/overhand is less.
In the pre-pro units, in contrast, the perpendicular portion of the bulkhead begins further from the bed floor (so may extend further back toward the tailgate), the rear window itself is now slanted further toward the tailgate, at an angle roughly equivalent to the bulkhead (in my opinion, to permit the window to roll down), and the eave/overhand is deeper.
no real sense comparing them though, as proportions are too different to extrapolate which bulkhead leans furthest back. For same reasons though, the Peterson doesn’t tell us much if anything s out the pre pro in this area of the truck

The hood bar is still there.Cool. hope your are right. so its just the front light bar that was removed?
