All 4 wheels were spinning too. After I got out I checked the ground clearance on that truck and found out it had none. It looks like it has plenty, but the frame axles and suspension are just a few inches off the ground. WAY TO GO FORD.
Sorry, rant off (for now).
Think I'll look at the Titan.


That is not good.  Would not think 12" of snow would hang you up.  When we had 26" around Christmas the snow was 18" give or take on the streets and it never stopped me.  Have BFG AT's with 26k miles on them.  My pickup is 99 Chevy C/K.  No lift.

It was a company truck. I wouldn't own the POS that they buy. I think, they think they are buying torture devices because when they are done adding the additional equipment they are torture devices (i've confessed to all kinds of crimes I didn't commit buy just driving them around, good thing no one was there to hear me).
I won't buy a government motors vehicle or a communist corperation car. I was leaning towards a Ford, but I'm not impressed with their comfort lately. I've never been impressed with Toyota (had one of those too). Think I may try a Nissan Titan, made in the show me state (a.k.a. Misery).Bucky

I wish those trifles would get back so I can start reloading again..I could be reloading for my 223 though, that AR goes thru alot of ammo quick.. I would like to buy a rifle kinda like Buds, or maybe a 5R Mil Spec Remy 223, that would be a nice shooter I bet....
Yeah Julio, I am afraid to go semi-auto! 
I spend enough time reloading 223 for the boltaction as it is!

I sure do like the 7mm-08's damn I wish they made that 5R in a 7 08, I would buy another.. Or even a 6.5 Swede in 5R, that would be damn nice to me anyway.........

 
 
I would get the 308 5R for stand hunting and target shooting but Im not sure if there would be a big enough of a difference betwenn that and a 7mm-08 
What do you think Boots???

Been to the East Coast 3 times, 2 of those times were to see a Surgeon in Great Neck , NY. The 2nd time was for the surgery on the back of my head, the first was to talk to the Doc (consultation). But my g-friend at the time and I went to Central Park and Times Square and all over Manhatten. What a great time we had, NY City is lots of fun. I would like to go back again............
