    Seems like every single Dodge driver out there (at least in my neck of the woods) seems to have some kind of a weird attitude, issue, or problem against Tundras. Reving engines at lights, rattling pipes as they drive by, exhibition of acceleration when they are in ear shot, in site, or any other time that they are near. IT JUST SEEMS WEIRD! Im just sitting there at a light, driving down the road, pulling int a parking lot, and just acting a normal every day guy.

    What is with these guys? The Chevy and GMC dudes act like just another truck on the road. Nothing out of the ordinary, laid back, calm cool collected. Same with the Ford guys but every once in a while a Ford guy will act like a Dodge guy. Pretty rare but I do get the occasional Ford wanting to try and act like he's "better" than me or something?????

    The Nissan guys just try and act like they are invisible, never looking over and always seeming to turn their heads so that you can not get a good look at who exactly it that is driving one.

    Its like 99% of the Doge drivers must have very small ding dongs or something and have to try and compensate for it. Is there a place on the forms when buying a dodge where they must verify that you indeed have a small ding dong and are at least 80% ahole? I don't know, its like these people have the same DNA. Maybe they are all related (inter breeding would do this) and all have been driving Dodges for serval generations???

    I wonder if they act like this around the GM and Ford guys too??? Ive never seen a single GM dude act like a Dodge guy and as mentioned only on the rare occasion a Ford dude act like Dodge dude. Maybe he used to drive a Dodge or is about ready to trade his Ford in on one???

    Is Dodge just misspelled, code, some secret club or cult, and is supposed to be pronounced Douche?

    Would love to get some other feedback and data on this. I know that at least 95% of the "bull balls" that I see hanging from the back bumpers of pick ups are usually on a Dodge. There is just something about this Dodge/Douche thing! Maybe I'm just mis pronouncing Dodge and IT IS pronounced Douche??

    Dodge uses that "Hemi" and tough attitude when advertising their vehicles so of course its going to attract those big ego, tough guy, I am better than you types.

    Thats just my 2 cents.

    Next time you see one broken down on the side of the road, slip the transmission into neutral, and rev it a little as you pass by.

    All of my friends drive American trucks and I get a lot of crap for mine. I definitely know what you mean though. I definitely get a lot of engine revving and tearing off at the line. However, mine seems to be across the board, not just Rams.

    Try wearing a wig? ;) If they think you are a girl, they seem to all the sudden be really cool and let you in front and even pass them up! How strange!

    I tried to help a guy in a Dodge about a month ago and he actually said that he was not broke down! He was laying under the truck under the transmission and said that he was "only checking it". Was pulling a big ass trailer and there was tranny fluid all over the pavement. LOL LOL LOL

    Your truck was made in Texas. Ask them where theirs was made.

    Around these parts, toyotas have just been accepted as trucks (full size). With most of the domestics taking the place in the industrial fields. Im beginning to see more Tundras as fleet vehicles. Dodge guys will always be dodge guys but I get nothing but compliments and questions from chev and ford owners. Basically people have another option now and are starting to get the bad taste from what they are used to.
    Still, I have to tell them fuel economy is bad and if youre constantly towing get a diesel but youll never find a truck you would love more for comfort and drive ability.

    The behavior you described is not limited to the Fiat owners. Perhaps in your local, more of these insecure guys are driving Fiats but they get behind the wheel of all makes and models, even occasionally, Titans and Tundras.

    If only they understood that. It's all good though, I am probably the worst. Sticking magnetic bumper stickers on theirs constantly. "Honk if you have a badonkadonk" did not go over well and neither does "fix or repair daily". :rofl:

    My wife drives the Tundra as a DD. She gets the best treatment from all the other trucks out there. Especially now that it's modded up.

    It's true! My windows on my old truck were 5% so once they realized I was a chick, it was a whole different game. :rofl:

    I can appreciate any modded trucks out there, no matter what they are and it seems like a lot of people do. But as @bobeast said, 63.2% are douches.

    How I wish my husband would allow me to use his money in addition to mine for my truck. I would be done so much sooner. But, he doesn't quite get the truck obsession.

    Agree with you. I have the same problem. I actually had a thread about it. Truck friends especially the ones live in country believe it's UnAmerican to drive a Japanese pickup Truck. Little do they know, Tundra was built for North American Market right here in heart of Texas.

    I live in Western PA (very rural). I have not experienced that sort of behavior from any brand truck driver yet. I've had some Ram owners coming up to me to let me know how much they like my truck. Perhaps you should move to PA.

    Stole this pic from a reddit post here in Calgary. They also said the front said zero fucks given...
    The sticker on right is a club called "burta rams". As in Alberta.
    A certain % of ram owners are a special kind of stupid.

    My brother and one of my buddies both drive Fords, they can get downright annoying sometimes talking shit on mine. The funny thing that they've both realized though is even with twin turbos, mine will still run right next to theirs, especially since their EcoBoosts take 4-5 seconds to spool up. My other two buddies drive older diesels and we just give each other a lil good natured hell every now and then :thumbsup:
