I have lots of stories. If you can't laugh at yourself, you're taking life WAYYYY to seriously.

Yup, it's a Ford. We won't even go there with the Fords and the hubs...I'm sure you already know ALL about it.

I've come to decide it's the white pants that get me into trouble....every time I wear those [email protected] things all h#ll breaks loose. LOL

Only happened because your other girlfriends don't have to get out and lock the hubs, they just flip the switch like you did. Buy him a newer truck, Dodge.

Hmmm, I have a whole bunch of palates I need smashed up and thrown away. Are you busy later?

I was thinking the same thing. It is not your fault Bonnie

Nope...doesn't happen to my other girlfriends because they don't want to break a nail. The poor guy has to run around and do everything. I see it more as a team effort and have made it a point to learn how to back the truck and trailer up, hook and unhook the trailer, etc.

I tried to get him to buy a Dodge though...I like the looks of them. He owned one once and ended up with dents in it once a month. He won't own one now cuz he's pretty sure they're made of magnets.

Oh Jeeezus...don't let him see that post!!!!! We just made it through our first October without buying a new truck!! Don't be giving him ideas now. Went with the V10 this time. It's a good truck...except the hubs. I've got it down now though, it won't happen like that again. Next time I'll be more independant.

And thanks Rob.

Bonnie Outlaw,
Don't feel like the Lone Ranger...I did the same thing last year. One of the first times out last season with my new (to me) used F350 , it was low tide when coming in and the ramp was nice and slippery . No problem , right? Just flip the switch. Well after 10 minutes of rocking , spinning , slipping and sliding I finally got out. Damned automatic hubs . Well next day (Monday) I take one apart only to find it was a MANUAL hub . After close inspection I could make out where "lock" and "unlock" used to be. The truck was just old enough , that it had wore off. After years of having 4x4s this was the first one since my 77 Bronco that had manual hubs. Fords got a better idea
