You know you drive a pick up when you pick up free furniture from the side of the road because it looks like you can make bed rails out of it.

Why do dodge ram commercials have the truck pulling train cars? If you want to pull train cars wouldn't a train be a better choice?

Can't even fit a standard length 2x4 in that tiny thing. Should have bought a long bed.

Can't drive a train everywhere.

These are about all the D-Bag truck owners, this does not apply to those who actually use their trucks for work.

-When you think it is fast.

Oh your truck can go fast in a straight line? Lets see it try to turn doing over 80 mph.

A guy in a modded diesel truck tried passing two cars on a main road. As soon as he got past the cars he had to slam on the brakes because a corner was coming up soon.

My friend with a modded Duramax wants to race my Jeep. There's two reasons that hasn't happened:
1. His Allison transmission crapped the bed, and the truck won't move
2. His second Allison transmission crapped the bed, and the truck won't move


-When you have 35s but have never driven on a dirt road
-When you put stacks on it, big rig tires, and huge tow mirrors and think its a big rig

-When you need the extended cab long bed version but you live by yourself in an apartment.

-When you get frustrated with traffic so you drive on people's lawns to get around it.

-When everyone in a truck somehow drinks Monster energy drinks or rides Dirtbikes (Fox stickers)

-When the tail lights are tinted so dark that when you hit the brakes nobody behind you can tell.


-When you have mud tires on 20" chrome rims

-When you don't know how to drive a big vehicle so you can never keep the truck in between the lines.

-When you can't park in a single space so you park across 4 spaces
-When you have a trailer attached but park in a space anyway leaving the trailer sticking out and blocking the parking lot

-When you drive down the highway at 80 mph with a bunch of loose lumber in the bed talking on the phone

-When you put a leveling kit on your truck and HID headlights and wonder why oncoming drivers always blind you

Everything from here down does not apply to me

850 ft/lbs of torque will move you forward faster than most things on the road.

Only idiots think that is it's primary purpose though. But it is sure fun and does help quite a bit in traffic, load or no.

Ya know what else can go fast in a straight line but not turn worth a ****? Most American muscle cars. Because turning is for communist bastards.

All about tires. My dad's F250 with BFG ATs and LSD front and rear won't go anywhere in the snow but my Jeep with open rear went anywhere with duratracs and hardly ever went out of 4x2.

Seriously?
You try to drag in a Jeep?

Oh yeah that's what they are good for. You know what else they are good for? Cornering at 80mph


OLD MAN RANT WARNING!!

I can take my truck AND my YJ around corners just as fast as anyone else...That follows the speed limit.
My truck, my Jeep and my wife's mini van can come "off the line" just as fast as they need to to make it to the next light.

If you want to drag race, or corner at 80 moh please take it to a track and stay off public roads. There are too many innocent people that don't want to see the inside of a hospital (if they're lucky) because of your immature asshattery.
