1. You keep a cup of diesel fuel on your bedside table because the aroma helps you sleep.
2. You've ever dabbed diesel fuel behind your ears before a date.
3. You scoff at trucks when you realize they are gassers. (see #36)
4. You ever hooked up and towed a trailer, just because you CAN.
5. You don't unhook your trailer from your truck because it really makes no difference.
6. You have ever got stuck in a drive-thru because you forgot the trailer was still hooked up.
7. You've drag raced your diesel truck.
8. You get "aroused" when you hear a diesel engine or a turbo whine.
9. Someone comments to you how loud your truck is and you reply, with a grin and a chuckle, "Ain't it, though!"
10. You don't think the CTD is loud enough so you remove the muffler so you can "hear" it better. (This also applies to turbo silencer rings)
11. Regardless of outside temperature, you still roll down the passenger window when in tunnels, under bridges, or beside Jersey walls, just so you can listen to your truck "sing".
12. You have your right rear view mirror tilted down so you can "admire" the smoke from your tailpipe.
13. You're always watching the mirror after the turbo spools up so you can see how perfectly your smoke cloud formed.
14. You continue to watch your rear view mirror to see how the traffic behind you deals with your smoke cloud.
15. You say "YEAH!", "YAHOO!", or any other shout of joy if you see that you stopped at least one vehicle behind you with your cloud. (grinning from ear to ear doesn't count because you do that even when there's no cloud, as long as you're driving your truck)
16. When you aren't driving your diesel truck, you roll down the window at traffic lights to hear ANY other diesels that might be around.
17. You have more than one turbo on your CTD. (CTTD)
18. You hold down the smoke pedal just a little when your starting your 12 valve, just so it shoots a big puff of smoke.
19. When you make your friend drive your truck down the road, just so you know what your "audience" hears when you ride by.
20. You keep 36 bags of cement in the back of the truck most of the time because while you don't notice any difference in power, the truck rides nicer.
21. While maybe not a truck, you're trying to get the wife to drive some kind of diesel powered vehicle.
22. You finally get your wife to drive a diesel powered vehicle, you can't wait to bomb it.
23. You start talking about getting a new vehicle and your wife says that she wants to trade in her Jaguar on a new CTD.
24. You respect lesser diesels than the CTD just because they are diesels.
25. You put the cat in the garage and put the new turbo in bed.
26. You can guess what diesel is in the truck coming around a corner before you see it.
27. People look at you strange when you run down the driveway waving at the UPS truck.
28. Folks leave the campground cuz your talking to all the diesel owners about BOMBing and those folks don't know what BOMBing means.
29. You aren't driving your truck, you're on the Diesel Truck Resource web site conspiring with other diesel heads.
30. Alert sounds on your computer are your favorite diesel engine(s) starting up or running.
31. You've ever raced a ricer while the gooseneck trailer was still hooked up.............and won.
32. You like to take people for rides in your truck so you can show them how MUCH your truck smokes.
33. When someone says they have "twins" and your first thought is of turbos and how they are setup.
34. You feel guilty because you're not spending enough time with your truck.
35. When someone mentions their "other half" and your first thought is they are talking about their truck.
36. You find yourself looking for the number of lug nuts on a truck to make sure it's "qualified" to have a diesel before you look for the diesel name plates or big tailpipe.
37. You can recognize the smaller rear end cover of the lesser 1/2 ton axles and know instantly it is a lesser truck.
38. If you have ever driven somebody else's diesel truck and felt as if you were cheating on your own.
39. If someone mentions "B1" or "B2" and you think of turbos, rather than the bomber airplanes.
40. You read this whole list smiling and nodding your head.
41. You're now thinking of one that wasn't mentioned here.

42. When you go through a drive thru, you just go straight to the pick-up window, cause you know they can't hear you through that wimpy speaker. :D

Good stuff!

While I had my days of going through sets of tires within 5K miles, #31 happened just this morning.
While only pulling a loaded utility trailer, these two youngsters were playin their music and reving their go-cart mufflers on their ricers. Spooled up the turbo, let it loose and watched them frown over being dogged by a truck pulling a trailer.

Note: It is still fun to burn some rubber. Maybe I will do it again in a few years.

too true! been there, done that!

When the "PC" crowd at work asks me why I drive "that big ole truck" I just tell them I do other things than drive back & forth to work, I grenaded the 4sp xmsn on my last truck (dakota) in 52K miles.
(what can I say . . . .I wuz downgrading to save $$/gas)

Then I ask them if they want to race their little sporty car with my 7300 lb truck . . I had one taker . . . . .he stayed with me almost all the way thru the intersection :)

At least I don't answer anymore asinine questions at work :)

I have dual 4" now. I did leave the cat on because to get an 04 and up inspected you have to have it. It is definately noticable from a mile away though. I too have smoked out a few thuggish lookin fellas in there cars, they dont seem to like it too much. Generally in these kinds of trucks they assume you have a rifle or something(I have a 12 gauge) with you so they dont jerk around too much.

The other day we went to eat at a restaurant and there was a diesel up front running (f250 king ranch) with nobody in it. We ate and when we left the truck was still running up front with nobody in it. Seems to me that is a complete waste of gas. It almost deserves to be stolen when a vehicle is just left running for over an hour while the owner is inside not using it. What a waste of gas and exhaust.
