Congrats! Enjoy!

How does it compare, size wise, to other vehicles around you? Visited Ireland in 2004 and saw one SuperDuty while there. It seemed like a road monster compared to the many smaller vehicles.

Very nice truck. That thing will be a monster on the roads over there. I have always wondered what sort of looks/attention a big American truck would get in a country dominated by smaller sedans.

I will be going to the Philippines next year for a month or two and I keep bugging my GF(The main reason I am going is to meet her parents before I propose..shhh, its a secret!) that I am going to ship my truck over there just for the shock/awe factor. Granted I would probably be car jacked or would have it stolen within the first few days I am there, but it might be worth it heh .

Now all you need is some Yosemite Sam mud flaps and a window sticker saying "Yank Tank".

Are you planning on towing with it or just pissing off little Peugeots and Renaults?
