    I pulled through McDonalds today (high roller I know) and after I ordered the guy said "Nice truck, man" and at schoo last week a 12th grade teacher walked up to me when i got out and talked about my truck and said he had some running boards i could have. And some Japanese at Saki Sushi was asking me about it but i couldnt understand him haha. Lots of other general compliments, mainly on the wheels.. Feels good though :D

    EDIT: And last night at Relay for Life, I parked in a well lit security-guarded lot because I was in bro-ville and there's always alot of break-ins, and I was leaving at like 10:30 and as I was walking up behind to my truck, the guards rode by the front on their golf cart thing and I heard one say "RollingBigPower?" and I yelled "Hell yea!"

    I catch people staring all the time and I've had some of my guys at work say, "That's your truck?!?!" I love both. I also don't see any black 2012s ever. Maybe that's what they're looking at?

    The owners where I work are always raving about how great my truck looks!! That means a lot coming from 2 guys that own many, many car dealerships, 3 motorcycles dealerships and usually are driving corvettes, camaros, likfted k2500s, restored jeeps, etc!! Gotta love that speedway blue!!

    A co-worker of mine has a 2001 ex-cab black pre-runner that is still in pretty good shape all stock. He tells me all the time of people asking to buy it or making offers for it. He says he's driving it until the wheels come off.


    On a side note, I was leaving home depot yesterday, as I walked out a guy got out of his car and as he walked passed a Ford Sporttrac (not his) I noticed him looking intensely at the rear bumper/tag area and then even stepped closer and leaned down to look closer. I didn't see anything special to draw attention to it so I was like wtf? If that had been my truck I would have been like "can I help you?" It just looked suspicious to me.

    whenever I get compliments on my truck I say "ohh...its not mine" then hit the panic button for a few seconds, then jump in and speed off..




    haha jk, but that would be funny to see.

    Love it when it's obvious who left it.

    That's why I only leave a negative rep when it's a dogpile and he has no idea who left it (just kidding) :D

    I was at a target yesterday and about to exit the parking lot. Some guy that was pulling into the parking stared and turned to look at mine while he was still moving. Greatest feeling in the world since I have put a lot of hard work into the baby.

    me and the wife where out to the boston market the other night and a group of 5 women where standing around my truck looking all over it. then one came into the joint to ask me about it :/ never had that before lol.

    i get people all the time asking me stuff after a while it gets annoying imo. another time i came out of a wawa to find a guy laying on his back almost underneath the truck looking at stuff! i was like what the fuck are you doing? he hopped up and tried to act all normal but, it was weird and awkward lol.
