You have to talk her into it?

A F series truck is the safest rig you can put your wife and kids in... We have an Excursion, but before that we had an Expedition, an Explorer, and two Jeeps...





I dont have any pictures of the others... Before the age of digital cameras... LOL

Joe I was hoping you would chime in! She came right and told me that my truck is safer to drive my girls in the her car LOl. I told it it was because its 1) made of steel and not plastic, 2) its lifted, so damage would be minimal IF anything were to happen!

Was your wife already into truck when you met her or did you get her into them?

We started dating in High School...

She had a Nissan Sentra and I road a bike...

My first truck was a 1971 Dodge W250...

She loved her Expedition the most, and it was a beautiful rig we got almost new...

But after watching one of my friends drive his CCSB into a tree at 80mph and walk away, Excursion it was.

Its more the mass that protects you in these larger rigs, not what there made of, or the height... 3000# vs 8000#, the 8000# always wins.
