I'm always getting complimented on my truck. The funniest one I remember though, is I was waxing my truck in my driveway and I was on my knees getting everything, and some old Asian fella was walking, didn't even see him but he was right behind me, said "hey nice truck" he scared the shit out of me

Not that I'm opposed to talking to people about mine, it's just that in my experience the older guys tend to want to talk forever, and it's hard to get away from them. Most people won't even approach me to give me a compliment about one of my rides, even when I see them clearly checking them out. I'm a good natured person, but on the exterior I'm a big, intimidating looking dude, and I think that scares alot of people off.

Flew to Albuquerque NM to get my ranger. I had a 800 mile drive back. 100 miles into it I stopped at a gas station. Someone offered me more then what I paid to buy it.

The only compliments I have gotten are from a coworker at a dealership and a buddy that likes to go offroading, and he just likes it because it's 4x4 (he is a Chevy guy). Otherwise nothing except for making eye contact with other ranger drivers when they drive by and we look at the others truck haha

I get compliments on it all the time, and its definitely an eye catcher and finger pointer. My kids love when I drop/pick them from school, their friends and other kids like it too. At work there is always a customer who asks for it, and sometimes they give me good ideas to do to my truck.

My wife doesnt really get on my truck, when she does,she says everyone stares, especially other women. That why she hates it.

Ya, I get compliments up here. A woman at a BP, asked if it was OK if she took photos. I came walking out of a McD's, and a DOT cop was sitting next to it. Turned out we knew each other, but he'd never seen my Ranger. The guys at the Ford dealer like it a lot. In fact, they never charged me for the Tbar crank and alignment.
Down state, it's a different story. I see guys looking, but as soon as eye contact is made, they basically run away. Hell, people are afraid to even look at each other down there. I get good reactions when I see a nice one down there and say something, but they're always "en garde" initially. People really "ARE" strange.

John I really thought it was great for a young guy to take time to let me know he liked my truck very unusual for anybody to take a moment to be friendly anymore. Most people are a bunch of "smart asses" LOL!
