    First thing that comes to mind is the cost and second the mpg but they are nice for someone with deep pockets

    Ford corparation don't have enough money to pay me to own let alone drive a ford, I wouldn't even chit on the hood of a ford, dodge even same way, they make them nice and flashy but one you pay for them and drive off the lot they are junk. Its even getting to the point that GM is getting crappy, thats the one thing my dad pointed out the dash in teh the GM trucks is just ugly and awful. I will stick with my older gen trucks basic, simple to the point. I don't need a nav screen, I don't it dinging telling me my door is open or freak out with its sensors I am too close to a weed trying to park.

    I do give credit to the auto headlights those are nice and most come on when wipers turned on are a good thing, but the other useless chit and cra.p don't need it don't want it. Got away with not needing it or having why put it in now to add to the distractions of driving.

    Sure did Rail, I posted it on this thread a few months ago. 6x6 Raptor The Raptor is the only Turd truck I like. But IMOP, I think the 6x6 is pretty stupid.


    Thanks on the Avatar. I figured I'd change it for the festive season. :)

    Nowadays a loaded truck/car can run as much as a house.

    I must have missed it when I was laid up with my knee injury, or suffering the aftereffects, LOL. Saw the 6x6 for the first time the other day, price tag seemed ridiculous considering what kind of bad boy rig you could build with the money, but meh, some fools with more money than sense will bite on the Ford. :eek:

    THE AVATAR IS PERFECT, YA HAVEN'T LOST YER SENSE OF TIMING... YET, LOL!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU & YOUR FAMILY, MY FRIEND!!! CHEERS!!! :drunk: THE RAILSPLITTER
