Pick-up truck on steroids

I was minding my our business cruising down the highway with the cruise control set on 73, when I was passed by a Ford F650, crew cab, 4WD drive, dually diesel in the left hand lane who must of been going 85 with California plates. That truck was HUGE. Anybody out there driving one of those? I wonder what his fuel milage is?

Some folks don't worry about milage. (They don't have too).

The price of those things is really ridiculous. Unless you get the towing platform, you can't tow a normal 5th wheel.

I you can afford $120K for a pick up, fuel is not going to be a problem.
