    That sounds like a nightmare to plow. But, you got to take them as they come I gues.

    I'm not saying it's not good on gas. But, my 2000 Ford Ranger 3.0L V6 4x4 only gets 12 to 14mpg. But, where that F-150 is 2wd it could be pretty good on gas.

    No, we pulled over to look around the hill, then he just drove around the bottom of the hill.
