Who are the rudest most inconsiderate diesel owners on the road?

I know this will be slightly bias, but I have a gut feeling and wanted to see if the results match my thoughts.

Guys do some stupid things. The rudest are guys who install those super bright headlights. If you need that much light, perhaps you should not be driving at night? Sure, there are times on the ranch where that much light is needed but use a different switch and leave the headlights alone!!

My vote for most inconsiderate diesel driver is the night vision challenged guy with non-stock headlights.

I don't think its brand specific. I feel its more of an age and maturity issue.

In defense of super bright lights, I think that observation should be limited to people who install them incorrectly and either add xenons to stock headlights or aim them high. Adding brighter, safer, and more efficient lighting as a great safety addon so long as it is performed with a great consideration for other drivers and potential towing situations.

That being said my headlights create less glare than factory headlights. Also, my auxiliary lights are all connected to up fitters. My .02

I've been challenged by every brand of truck, but the Dodge guys have been the worst for me. The Chevy and Toyota guys seem to know their place on the food chain. However, these Dodge guys are extremely insecure and always feel the need to prove something when coming across the likes of me. All you can do is feel sorry for them.

As for rude/aggressive/dangerous drivers, it doesn't seem to be brand specific.

Although, I find it rude when your truck is spewing black smoke like a coal train, and Cummins guys seem to like doing that.

I would say Dodge, but only for this reason (which in some sense gives Dodge a pat on the back)

That older 5.9L Cummins is a workhorse and has proven to be very reliable. That means, younger people can buy a 10 year old Dodge Diesel for pretty cheap, and then put on stacks, and do a lot of the dumb mod's that younger people TYPICALLY do. I am 26 and like to think my truck is tasteful, but many more "redneck" young kids especially, want big, loud, and obnoxious. Really though, to each their own. They are young usually and will likely grow out of it.

CummINGS - "look at my stacks and tooww mirrors, my big C gives me 50 hp"

DuramaxY pad - "I got a Allison, there the best" and " my tires are suposto do that when pulling a sled, it gives me traction"

6.4 - "I got 800 hp in just tune"

Me - " don't f@ck with me or I'll blow my turbo all over your ol-lady's face and then break my rod of in your sister"

Just kidding around... Chill out 6.4 guys
