All the ladies I drive around with don't know how to drive a manual... so thank god for that eh? :-) Sure they can push the stick around a bit - but they wont be touchin my truck till they learn how to drive =) =) And I'm not about to go teaching someone on my truck either - last time I did that a front tire ended nose down in a ditch on the side of the road.. thank god for 4wd eh? Something about pushing a clutch in, shifting up/down a gear, and letting off the gas - while trying to steer - doesnt work in synch with most ummm.. feminine drivers -laughs-

my girlfriend backed into my truck once a couple summers ago, and she was legitimately worried I would break up with her! Talk about knowing how much my truck means. She was lucky and it only dented her car and not my truck...lol. Thanks to my steel bumper, no roll pans for me. That thing has saved me a couple of times.

She drives my truck on occasion, but she doenst like me driing her car much either since it is a little stick and 'only she knows how to drive it'. She thinks she is big and tough when she gets in my ranger though.

I let mine drive my truck from NJ to NY 2 weeks ago. 1 hr 40 mins. I was sick and couldn't drive. After that she says she now feels comfortable driving my truck. Wherever we go, I'm always driving my truck, she has a little 2 door 2006 Accord that is so uncomfortable. But thankfully the lease is up in July and shes getting a truck. I'm trying to convince her to get a 250.

Haha my girlfriend is afraid to drive my truck.

That's not a problem with me. With my old car she wanted to take it everywhere, and every time she did I will admit I got scared, real scared.

the trick with this is... act like you NEVER let girls or anyone else drive your truck... then when you do let her drive it, she's like "AWWWWWWWHHH" and then its on like donkey kong.

Sara actually did pretty good the first time ever driving my 94' w/ a manual. she didnt stall it out, the only thing she really idd wrond was let if rev too high before she changed gears, other than that she does really good!

Once my wife talked me into driving my Ranja home from the bar - it was the longest night of my life. I was already hammered at midnight and one of her friends drove me home.
