Get her a tesla?...fast and quiet...safest car on the planet.

I really wonder about the safety factor of the quiet aspect.  I bet there will be a let of Tesla/Txting pedestrian accidents.  I think if I got a Tesla I'd get a secondary stereo tied to the speedo with some outdoor speakers underneath to play some good deep engine noise so people here you coming/going.  Of course, you could switch it off for stealth mode.

This is the truck that has no frame and cannot be used for towing or any heavy work? Or does that statement describe all Fords? hehe

On a quiet day, you can hear Chevy and Dodge trucks rust. Ford kicks ass.

Transfer Flow

Transfer Flow, Inc. announces the release of the largest aftermarket replacement fuel tank for the 2017 Ford F-250, F-350, and F-450 Super Duty short bed, crew cab diesel trucks. The hot-dipped aluminum alloy steel tank nearly doubles the original useable fuel capacity, storing a total of 60 gallons of diesel.

Tony - this isn't for the Raptor but would probably work for you  [ or one similar to this ]

Well-over 100,000 cars on the road now. Has not been reported to be a problem.

If you're in the market for a new car and it would make you both happy, nothing wrong with a woman driving a ute. My GF drives a Nissan Navara ute.

What's a ute....?

Ute is Aussie-speak for pick-up truck.

The Raptor is sort of cool but honestly if I'm getting a pickup this is more my speed:

Maybe a short bed, to make it nicer to drive and still have towing capability.
