    My 16yr old daughter does. I figured if she gets in an accident she is safer in it than the women’s leased kia with a thousand and one air bags. She goes on no roads more than 35mph anyway.

    My girlfriend gets to drive me home in mine when I am drunk.

    Or on long road trips when I am tired.

    She is a good driver, drives 2500s and F-250s for work.

    i should have said my wife can handle it fine on the interstate and so on(the 05 anyway, hasnt driven the new one the interstate yet) but in town and in parking lot she dosnt like it as much due to the size. i evne found myself a few times wondering just how far the fenders stick out on the 11. my 03 and 05 were basically the same truck, so those were fine, since i was used to em, the 11 is taking a bit.

    It's not so much difficult (actually my current mechanical clutch requires more force than most hydraulic clutches I've had), but there's a lot more variation on how hydraulic clutches are set. Plus it's just another part to break.

Seriously though, we'll have problems if something happens!
    @AMac hurry this is your chance, grab Surreals truck and bring it to Texas! We can make a party out of it!
    Haha...anyone who passes me their keys would have their vehicle in good hands. If I'm paying for the gas/diesel I'll drive slow to attain the best fuel economy, I'm aware of drivers around me, I won't get it dirty, I won't park it next to a bunch of beat up cars/trucks, and if I think it's dirty I'll likely detail it for you too

    My wife has driven my truck a few times. My cousin drove it once. The only reason he was driving was because we were on a road trip and I had just got done working a 12 hr night shift. The wife doesn't like to drive it "cause it"s to big" she also doesn't want to have to come home and tell me she dented it in anyway.
