The IRC Mytho's XC were actually designed for that track.

Right, I forgot, a gas guzzling symbol of American steel defines a vehicle worthy of a "real man". If you buy into that *****, make sure you pick up a pack of Marlboros and a bottle of Beam while putting $200+ in your gas tank.

Eh, it's not quite that much.
we Average around 80-100 dollars to fill up our truck.

But, you see, we love our 4 wheel drive, and all that "steel" for the added protection. We like being higher than the other cars. If we get into an accedent, we have a better chance of surving because of the massive amount of metal in the front end =)

Hey, My uncle is still alive thanks to his big truck.
some lady ran a light and pulled right in front of him, but instead of smashing right into his driver side door, she went underneath his wheels.

Nah, but this sunny D is!

Ford sucks. Subaru's all wheel drive. Better gas. Faster than a Porsche Boxxer..

My dodge cummins will beat any ford hands down. The cummins engine is the best diesel engine and ford sucks anyway. It's a tie between chevy and dodge but dodge makes a nicer engine but chevy makes a more comfortable truck.

But keep in mind dodge beats ford.

And with some tuning, you can make a diesel truck smoke a subaru, not in handling, but in speed.

Am I justified in getting an even larger vehicle because your Uncle's truck makes the road a more dangerous place for me?

I've gotta fly the BS flag high on that one. At $4.50 a gallon for fuel. especially when we just filled the freaking Jeep and it cost $72 @ $3.79

Maybe if you run it to 1/2 tank then refill.
