    Is there a real world correlation between gun enthusiasts and truck owners?

    I have a 2002 F-250 powerstroke 4x4 ... with a gun rack.
     
  2. I have a lifted Jeep.

  5. I'm not much of a truck person though. Before the Jeep were 3 Corvettes and an M3. The Jeep was purchased because I wanted to be able to get to places to shoot.

    Don't have one yet. I did have a lifted explorer as my last vehicle. Once this focus has lived it's useful life though, I'll be getting an F-150. My friend keeps trying to talk me into a SuperDuty but I think that's just too much truck for my needs.

    It's funny around here how many small cars show up to the range now after the gas spike. Before, I was the outcast showing up in a small car, now trucks are a rarity.

    Cadillac DeVille for me, but I need a truck. The Caddy doesn't like non paved roads very much.

    I drive an 03 Pontiac Grand Prix Gt :greddy: its my fist car though and I'm only 19. I'm thinking of upgrading to a 2000~2002 M3 in the next year or so though.

    My dad drives a 2009 F-250 Superduty long bed crew cab we use for hunting and shooting so I guess it all evens out.

    Yeah it's kind of sad like that. Luckily I can run my truck on veggie oil.

    I drive a VW hatch on air ride. At shows it lays lower control arm and skirts while gravel road and mild trails it has 6'' of clearance or so.

    I have a 2004 Dodge 2500 QC Cummins 4x4 etc etc thing.

    A car or tiny truck simply doesnt do what I need.

    Also have some deuce and a halfs.

    Another reason I'm not big on the SuperDuty. While it'd be cool to have one, gas mileage is miserable. The kid who keeps telling me to get one always drives his dad's v10 superduty. Get's like 10mpg on a good day.

    Not a big truck ... but a decent sized jeep.

    I want one. Lowered track cars don't do well on some of the unpaved roads (paths) that lead some of the ranges. Most gun nerds around here drive trucks and suv's.

    No truck for me, just a small 2 seater Toyota. I do want a deuce and a half though, it's annoying when all the pompous assholes in their SUV's out here try to change lanes into me.

    Those are awesome to drive out on the streets. Even better is a cut down five ton (minus the rearmost axle).

    Suspension only lifted 03 Toyota 4X4 xcab. :) 22mpg. Not bad I guess.

    Plan on putting different bumpers and sliders on it soon. Also want to put a auxiliary gas tank some day.
