So this past weekend I spent some time with my girlfriend drive around her parents Jeep Rubicon because she didn't want to drive all the way to my house in her Ford F-250 King Ranch.
We got talking about an off roading trip I am about to go on this next weekend, I wanted her to come. So I asked if she wanted to come. She said no, I asked why not. She said that she would just make fun me and the other guys.
I then asked her why she would do that. After prying for a little to get an answer out of her, she said because she thinks that Tacomas are not trucks. I said ok. Believe what you want to believe.
A little back ground: My girl friend is originally from Monroe, Louisiana. Her family is pretty redneck, which I have no problem with. She grew up around truck being lifted beyond portion and lots of mudding. She currently lives in Georgia where she lives on a farm and rides horses. She is part of a very privileged family because she has a 2008 Ford F-250 King Ranch to pull her horse trailer. She wants to get a 6in. lift for her truck and get bigger tires.
So to continue to the story. I said ok believe what you want to believe. I said to her you know what i think is really dumb. I proceed to say people who lift diesel trucks because it looks cool. so lets just say that went over well.
I had to explain the difference between wheeling on trails compared to mudding which is just riding around getting your truck dirty.
I also asked her why would people get insanely lifted trucks if all they are going to do is go mudding? I mean its not like a lifted diesel truck is going to even fit on some trails.
I have a 3in. lift on my Tacoma with 33s on there. It gives me more clearance to go wheeling. That may not be the original reason why i lifted my truck but now i understand why people do it.
So she says that Tacomas are not trucks.
I wanna know what you guys think and what I should respond to her with.
