    Glad to hear that. My wife is the same way. I still like to look after my family though. To each his own.

    1. I own an F350 & F250 both 7.3 diesels. I'm never a prick neither is my daughter, we are actually very courteous drivers.
    2. My 7500+lb crewcab long bed 4x4 is actually pretty fast for what it is as I can walk a Lexus IS250 easily or pretty much any car under 250 hp. Not gonna run no 13.0's but it will surprise most people.
    3. Not sure why you believe you have the right to generalize and berate others whom you don't know but then that kinda makes you a prick doesn't it?
    4. Take the trunk lid off your Buick put a fifth wheel/gooseneck ball in the trunk then come drag my 6000 lb horse trailer. I won't even put 5000 lbs of horses in it. Oh yea you can't handle it!
    5. How about you just go get me two rolls of hay at 800 lbs each. Oh yea you can't haul those either.

    I get it, you're pissed off at some jerk, he was wrong, but to talk down to the rest of us who need those trucks is unnecessary.

    I once had one of them going, - pulled up alongside one of these "coal rollers" and got him to drop his window and then yelled "Is your truck on fire?" He called me a whole bunch of names and said he'd show me a thing or two...And then I proceeded to absolutely dust him with the Wildcat, all he made was exhaust smoke and I left him in a cloud of tire smoke. Bet the little chicklet sitting next to him smelled nice after that.

    Some people obviously don't have the ability to read without seeing the words, by that I mean "reading in-between the lines" I felt like I was being rather clear in the fact that's it's the ones that HAVE MODDED DIESEL TRUCKS that are the pricks 99% of the time if that's not the case where you live , well then that's great but down here in SC THAT IS THE CASE, I mean I do live here and drive all over the state going different things. I have had hundreds and hundreds of diesel come to my shop and 99% leave their stinking ass truck running for no other reason than they feel the need to do so. hopefully that clears things up, if not oh well.

    And to challenge a car to a haul contest is kinda ridiculous, just like them Diesel guys that get beside me in my Camaro SS, or ANY other car I've had and think they really have a chance in hell, i mean that's naive on their part but,. then again I try make sure what's under my ass will get down.

    But as to #5 I could've done that while laying stripes!!!

    I've been in the diesel scene for quite some time and I can confirm that "rolling coal" is highly frowned upon. Besides being an ass to other people, it brings unwanted attention to our hobby from the regulators.

    Unfortunately, just like any other demographic, ours has its share of dicks and they do what dicks do.

    I have to admit I got blown away by one on the way back from ATCO this last fall. I was on a 2 lane road with double yellow lines and this jacked up pickup gets right on my a$$ while I was going 60 in 50 at night. He goes to pass and I stomp on it (I was driving my 96 Roadmaster that earlier in the day ran 14.30, not too shabby).
    We were really going at it (yes, I shouldn't have) and he starts to walk me and I let him go. We were going way too fast. Not good.
    Anyway he gets in front of me and I guess he thought I had my high beams on because of my little 235/60-15 drag radials...so he starts brake checking me.
    We get up to a stop sign and he gets in turn lane and rolls his window down....I stopped didn't look over and took off. Could have been a thumbs up....or a gun barrel. We were nowhere so I didn't want to find out which it was.....
    BTW it was a fairly new Dodge 3500....obviously modified some....surprised me ....pretty quick.

    Was going to comment when this started, didn't, then my experience last night.

    These truck owner are like some corvette owners who take up 3 parking spots. They want to imply "hey look at me, what a special car I have and you don't!".

    This guy parked his truck in front of everybody walking into the store with the "blat blat blat" of the diesel so everybody can see (and hear) his special truck.

    My experience last night driving across town... Guy had a Dodge with a Cummins that was next to us at a stop light. Light turns green and we move and he is slow to start then right next to the passenger window were I am sitting he "guns" it and the turbo wine can definitely be heard. Next stop light same thing, guns it and spools up the turbo with the exhaust lined up with where I am sitting. Next stop light I look over at him give him a "what the he!!" look and he gives me the finger and does the same thing again on down the road. What a "special" truck he has and wanted to make sure I knew he had a Dodge Cummins turbo diesel!

    Here diesel is now 'cool'.
    After the lifted Chevy truck craze.
    Whatever.

    The diesel pick-up scene is probably going to go the way of the dodo pretty soon. In Europe most major cities are considering partial or total bans on diesel engines. The truth is, while they are very efficient and fairly clean when running at a constant RPM and speed, it's the transitions that make them dirty. Urea reactors, governors, whatever, have all failed to clean the diesel up to the same NOx and SOx levels of a gasoline engine. The only real solution, ironically enough, may be to put a spark plug in it and complete the combustion in the power transitions. When companies such as Daimler Benz and Volkswagen have given up trying to clean it up and are now admitting that there's no way to achieve the latest targets legally, you know it's only a matter of time before regulations or bans come out on personal vehicles. Oh, and by the way, most of the big American industrial diesel manufacturers got nailed on the same thing back in 1999; they had to pay huge fines, and they've had to clean up their acts. In the last model year we've hit Tier 4 Emissions; meaning there's a computer and a governor on the engine that starts cutting back the fuel in order to limit the NOx and SOx to an "acceptable" level. Now an industrial forklift can't even climb a ramp at any speed faster than walking speed.
    The "coal rollers" will be gone before the Wildcats will be.

    I've learned very long ago there are all kinds of people in the world. We all get to be who we want to be. You let stuff get to you that won't matter 30 days from now. I don't.

    As to #5 I can show you how to fix that suspension so it hooks...
