Default My wife stole my truck

I have driven Ford trucks since 1980 and have had a few of them over the years. Most of them where XLT's and below. I leased a 2015 XL up until July 31st this year when the lease was pretty much over. I found a left over 2016 Platinum full loaded dealer lot (DEMO). I worked some magic and brought it home. It has the 3.5 Eco 3.55 Elocker and Max Tow package. Now to my original complaint. My wife wanted a Jeep wrangler 4 door so in 2014 I bought her one. It has a 3.6L NA engine and 3.31 rear end. To say this thing is anemic is to understate it. The ride is typical Jeep ruff and bouncy. When I brought the truck home she sort of laughed at me. Over the last week she heads out to work before I do. When I get out to the driveway she has taken off in my truck. When I talk to her she always has an excuse of why she took it. So I am thinking my truck just became her truck and I have a bouncy Jeep)-; Maybe I will put 3.73 rear end in the Jeep to help it have a little get up and go.

You could always park the Jeep behind your truck, or take away her key.

Change her key to a MYkey and limit the radio to 0 and speed to 30 and what ever other changes you can make.

That's hilarious!

I almost *wish* my wife would abscond with my truck... then I could trade her Escape in on a Mustang GT Convertible Hell, she doesn't want to drive in the snow anyway, so what do we need a 4WD (really, AWD) Escape for?

I have the opposite problem - she's driven my truck for about 25 combined feet (pulling holly bushes out of the ground). She drove my last truck (2011 F-150) for a total of 15 feet. I can't get her to drive my truck no matter what!

hahaha. Great story!!!

My daughter is coming up on driving age and she's been in love with my F150 since the day I brought it home. I told her if she does well enough in school she can take it to college with her after her first year. This gives me a few more years with it anyway.

Trade the Jeep in on a new F150 for yourself.

HA, learned that lesson years ago, my wife doesn't HAVE a key to my truck! The spare is easy to get to, it just doesn't have a battery(and she doesn't know that either).
