The things we do for love...

As you may recall, I got my truck back a week ago last Friday while my wife was down in Florida taking care of a sick relative. When she got back she told me that she had hurt her ankle from walking on the beach...yes, I know... Anyways, I offered to let her drive my F-150 for last week since her Wrangler is a standard and she agreed.

That was last week. This past weekend she tells me that she doesn't want to hurt her ankle any further and says she'd be happy to drive my truck another week. Today when I spoke to her she said that since I liked her Wrangler so much that I could just keep driving it and she'd go one driving my truck! Wait a minute! Who ever said I liked your Jeep over my truck?!? Rotten woman!

So, here I am, driving a Jeep and she's driving my F-150 and there is no indication that this isn't a permanent arrangement! Well, it is Valentine's Day!

Yea, I bought my Jeep for me to drive evenings and weekends( I drive a company work truck during the day). My wife started asking to drive my Jeep to work every now and then. Now, she sold her Tahoe and its her daily driver. I dont have the heart to repo it from her. She says she loves it.

Time for a few mods, IMO...Like a really high lift, so she never wants to swap back.

I feel ya. I love my little Wrangler, but my truck is sacred. I get nervous when she backs it from the garage.

You didn't mention how old your truck is

but trust me from prior experience, once that F150 hits the 5 year mark you'll start having issues. If you are already over 5 years, let her keep it. Trust me, she is getting the short end of the stick here.

It's eight years old and it's a Ford, not a Chevy so I don't foresee too many issues. And, yes, I do love my truck! It has seat heaters and it doesn't rip my belt loops off of my jeans!

I just got a call from her this morning as she's driving to south western MO and I'm stuck at work. During our conversation she said, "The cruise control on my truck sure is smooth! This thing rides nice!"

When asked about who's truck she said, "Well, I'm driving it, aren't I?"

Guess that about seals that one...

Hi, my name is Mac and I'm a Jeep owner!

Things have taken a turn for the worst! It seems that the sun is out, Spring is here and Summer is coming soon and she wants her Wrangler back!

Hell, I was just starting to have fun!
