I totally agree with SR. I don't feel safe driving cars. They feel so SMALL and like everyone is entirely too close while I'm driving. I drove through the rain of hurricane Sandy without any concern of getting stuck. I have no worry about being able to get to my horse pretty much no matter what. Between the power and 4wd, I'm getting to him somehow!

It's just really odd that I get the looks and comments. I get lots of giggles when I pull up to a red light and there's a huge fella inside his significantly smaller truck.

I got more funny looks when I got my car and was no longer driving my truck haha

A lot of my guy friends have issues with girls driving trucks because the girls they know that have trucks are daddy bought and they can't handle them.
Its an ego boost for the girls.
But yet they can't park and I'd have to say about 80% of the incidents I've and my roommates (2 guys) have had were with girls in trucks not being able to tell how big they are.
I have gotten a lot of comments from their friends because I could effortless move the truck around. Well of course, its a tiny short box half-tonne. I drove a bigger truck than my bf's current and worked driving grain truck. But the first time driving my car, I was getting lost on the road haha.

I like my trucks, but both me and the bf didn't need trucks while living in a city so I got a car. I like being able to go a month on $60 worth of gas. I probably never will get another truck of my own, but the bf's will be "upgraded" as soon as I'm out of school and we move out of the city. 4x4 may be needed when we live where there are snow plows again haha

Velma is 20 feet long just by herself (I have an 8 foot bed), then add the horse trailer onto that and I'm quite the presence on the road!

Of course, there are bigger trucks out there, but I'm not worried about comparing Velma to someone else's monster; I have the truck I want.

The one truck I did get rather bemused by was a huge Ford F350 behemoth with camouflage covering all over it, even the tail light covers. I didn't even know they made that kind of thing. It wasn't my cup of tea, but its owner sure seemed proud of it.

I think my truck is a stock color (its blue) but its noticeable enough that my trucks previous owner actually was able to tell on sight that it was the same vehicle. I also have gigantic tires which the previous owner was kind enough to buy a month before trading the truck in, LOL, so I have brand new super expensive tires!

I have a Dodge Laramie 3500 dually, its my grocery getter too...LOL.

Last month I was having some work done to it and rented a car for a couple of days plus I needed to run up to DFW airport to fetch hubby off the plane from ND. I almost died trying to get to the airport in that little car!!! I had people trying run me over and cut me off. Never realized until how much respect a pickup demands on the road.

Now I wonder where you live, DA.... I see females (including myself) driving big trucks all the time around here. And if there is a horse trailer attached behind I usually can bet I'll see a woman in a cabin. Lol!

Yep, I'm wondering about that too, Val. Most of the rigs you see on the roads around here are driven by women, and just about everyone owns a truck.

Cowchick, I hear ya about the small cars! When I had my rental after the accident it was a car, and I hated driving that little thing. I was never so glad to get back in a truck!

We live near/work in a college town with lots of relocated Chicago suburbanites, allergic to trucks. My DD's and I LOVE to drive our full ton trucks on town. At any intersection with stop signs all the sedans will let yo go first, and not bc you're dressed well. Plus, I was in an accident with my 1993 truck. The other driver hit the passenger door, pushed the truck 12 feet sideways, and you couldn't see the damage inside. My youngest DD was only 5 at the time, no injuries.
My hay man told me he upped his own truck's mileage when he put a set of Michelin tires on it, just FYI.

Oh yes. I ( as in me- my husband has no part in this truck) own an 06' dodge cummins....I don't drive it much because of diesel prices and its my pony puller, but when I do... wow.. and its worse when pulling a gooseneck trailer, or when people find out its a manual trans. I think men find it alluring..

Haha my husbands friends think I'm badass because Im the only girl around that can drive a manual, annnd pull a big trailer..smh..
