Re: 17 year old daughter bought old truck
The ONLY issue I see is a 17 yr old
driving a 8,000+ lb 402 cubic inch turbo charged diesel four wheel drive crew cab pickup truck as a daily driver. I'm not harping on anyone, just blows my mind that this type of vehicle is now become the accepted norm for a teenage driver with minimal driving experience. I'm sure it's averaging around 15 mpg and no doubt the wheels are constantly turning on it.
Gone are the days of diesels being work trucks.
Nah, its not that heavy. I know because I had to look it up when we licensed it. Anything over 8000lbs is licensed differently. Here's the specs..
ALso, did I mention my wife drives a 2014 F150 FX4 with the 3.5L ecoboost? That F150 weighs more than this 2500HD. I believe it weighs about 5800lbs. (Last year all steel).
