I got my truck back today from the body shop. I had been in a fender-bender on March 6th and I've been driving a rental. While a new Ford F-150 is a good truck with a lot to recommend it, it wasn't my truck.
I'll have to buy a new pickup eventually, but right now mine is running good, the body is repaired and I don't have a truck note. I can drive it like I own it.
Pickup guys know what I'm talking about. I felt like I had to baby the rental. Now I'm back in my pickup and life is better. Lots better. Later this evening I'll get out and stow everything I normally carry. It's in boxes in the garage.
It's amazing the amount of stuff I normally carry in my pickup.
