DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 4, 2017
– Ford, America’s truck leader, is celebrating a major milestone as F-Series now reigns as the top-selling truck in the country for 40 consecutive years and best-selling vehicle for 35 years.

Ford has now sold more than 26 million F-Series trucks since January 1977. Think of it like this: That many trucks could circle the globe more than three times, or, lined up bumper-to-bumper, would span 90,000-plus miles.

GREENVILLE, S.C., Dec. 12, 2016
– The light-truck industry was redefined in 1976 when BFGoodrich Tires released its first Radial All-Terrain T/A tire.

Blue Trucks
Feeling blue? The owners of these beautiful pickups certainly are, and that’s a good thing. In fact, we’d argue taking a cruise in any one of these beauties would be the cure for just about any case of the blues.  Check out these epic all blue truck paint schemes.

Ford Raptor Truck Fail
We’ll never know what possesses a person to jump such a beautiful (and expensive) truck knowing that the outcome probably isn’t going to be good.  This Ford Raptor jump had almost no chance of turning out well.  I guess a big crowd and a shot at a few minutes of fame is enough for some people… check out the carnage below.

Sunken f150
We’re not really sure what would possess someone to drive through water without checking the depth first.  You would think they would at least ease into it but apparently the driver of this, now sunken Ford F-150 is just a “go for it” kind of guy.  Maybe he learned his lesson, but we don’t think his F-150 will ever be the same.
