She sure is spoiled!


Wow, in no way did I expect to get home from Afghanistan on Tuesday and buy the wife a brand new 2010 Dodge truck on Thursday!

So, on a whim, we traded in her 2008 Chrysler Aspen and drove home in this 390 horsepower, Cornhusker Red (oh yes, we are Husker fans), 2010 Dodge.

She's happy, Im poor, life is good!

Sucker! LOL

My wife said to tell you you're not allowed to drive it until your wife put's the 1st scratch on it or get's it really really dirty. In which case you CAN drive it to the car wash & back but no further.

So how many planes can fit inside and in the bed? You'll be needing a bed cover and a liner. I'd suggest the Bed Rug brand of liner because you can use velcro strips to hold down your airplanes and stuff doesn't shift around.

LOL, ok Dan, its official. Our wives are never allowed to meet in person. They apparently are way too much alike! The only difference would be, that Kristy would not let me drive it to the car wash... she would make me wash it right here in the driveway.

Well, it will fit a few planes for sure. However, no need... made sure it has the factory tow package. So, it will just have to pull my 18' airplane trailer to the field!

Also, it has a spray in liner already in it.

Catch ya later guys. Time to go drool over her new truck for a bit.

I'd have to agree with Mudman. As long as "The Mrs." is happy, everyone's happy!

Good to see you made it back safe.

LOL, well, the truck is acctually hers. I need another Dodge 3500 dually with a Cummins and a 6 speed. But, I wont get my truck until after I get done with this tour in Afghanistan. That, and mine will not be brand new.... probably a 2006 or 07. I love my BIG trucks.

Yes it did Richard! And THANK YOU!!! That thing is the coolest thing since peanut butter. Has all kinds of cool little attachments for cleaning and maintaining an M-4. The best part is, I just bought my own personal 5.56mm M-4 too (DPMS A4). Should come in quite handy both at work and at home.

Thank you man!
