    I could not have said it any better...I own an F-250 Superduty, not my daily driver, which is a Saturn Vue. But my truck has 140,000 miles and all of them are hard driving or towing miles. If its not hauling one of the horse trailers it hauling hay, feed, shavings or manure. I would love to see my next truck get 30 MPG and see nothing wrong with "GREEN" cars, but the HEAVY DUTY truck will always have its place in AMERICA - for those of us who use our TRUCKS for WORK. My F-250 has no power windows, no carpet and really nothing fancy - manure and mud are hard to get out of carpet...
    Recently I had a TREE HUGGER tell me that I was KILLING his world by driving such a big truck. Actually I was hauling almost a ton of manure in barrels for their organic FFA farm so he could buy organic vegetables and free range chickens fed on organic grains. It is always easy to see who really uses their truck - the dirt.....
    Thanks for putting into print what I was thinking - hopefully the GREEN revolution will keep in mind that GREEN things are heavy and need a HEAVY truck to haul them.....
