Congrats, Ted, nice truck! That thing is huge, does it have the 6 or 8 foot bed on it? Looks like the 8. No sneakin' into compact parking spots with that one!

Congrats Ted! Now why don't you roll that Honda into the bed and take it for a little roadtrip eastbound? Say...2500 miles or so.

Can we have the HDDC Christmas Party in YOUR truck?????
Nice ride, even if it is a Ford.
Obviously you are feeling better and spending $$$$ is always good therapy.

Congrats on the truck, Ted. And David that is an 8' bed. I've had the two-wheel drive version since Ford changed the body style in '99. Until Chevy came out with 4 wheel steer, that big sucker had the shortest turning radius.

BTW Ted, easiest way to park that sucker is back it in.

On His Ride,
Steve
