For those that didn't know.....

I told a few of you guys that I talk to all the time that my mom got a truck herself. Traded in her 94 Mustang. Unfortunately, she didn't get the right compact truck.....

It's an 01, 4X4, all the options, 3rd door, and is sitting on 31X11.50R15 Truxs M/T's that we got last weekend for $300 for all of them, and they were only used on one wheeling trip by a guy with a Heep. She likes it a lot, and aptly named it the Yellow Submarine.

Next weekend, my dad said we HAVE to fix my Ranger so he can pull his project up to the garage and work on it, or otherwise I have to move it to the back of the property again. After that, my mom told me that she is going to go wheeling with her truck. LOL!

If you can't tell in the back ground, my dad had to pull his old farm truck up to the shop to even out the pack, so now there are 2 Fords and 2 Chevy's, lol. He even put his other truck out in the field, LOL!

And for those that may not have seen it, this is what she used to drive:

The only thing I can see that's a plus to getting this truck is she won't have to worry about the winter driving. Other then that, though, I think she traded down (even though on paper, she made a profit).

She's not, no. That would involve her actually getting her hands dirty.

My dad and I are going to do everything for her, though. She hasn't decided on anything specific yet. She has been doing some "research" though, which involves getting on Google Images and looking at pictures of other trucks, and going "OOOOOOO!"

She is getting it painted black as soon as we get the paint for it. Already got a buddy who just built a paint booth at his shop that said we can use it.

No. My dad will never own a Chevy pickup. He's a Ford man through and through.

Although, he does have a pretty sweet Tundra:

It's no short bus, that's for sure.

And it's not a TACO! IT'S A TUNDRA!

Although, I give my dad a hard time all the time anyway, cause it's only 7/8's of a truck. It's not good enough to be a full size, lol.
