Talking What does your other half think of you and your truck?

As the title says.....

Ill start off first, because till this day, I am finding it odd, but I do like it.
I have always been into cars (recently trucks, due to my recent ram purchase). I have always modded my vehicles in some way and I don't think I will ever grow out of this 'mod bug'.

Here is the scoop: My wife has always nagged (I know woman hate that word), asked 'why do you waste your money on that'.... 'when will you ever grow out of that'...'why are you upgrading that when you already have it (I like to sell my mod's to get a newer/better mod)', etc

But, for some reason this RAM is different. I have only had it for 4 months now and I have done quite a number of things to it and still have more things to come. She has yet to mention any of the above.
BUT....now she seems to have a positive opinion on my choices and tries to offer advise. WTF?

Example (s):
1) I was thinking of lowering - she says, 'its a flippin truck, you should lift it'. I was stunned at that.
2) I'm presently looking at wheels - She is commenting on all the wheels I'm looking at and wants me to go all black with some silver rivets or just all black. She also likes the M/T tires vs the A/T tires. But I only need the A/T for what I use it for.
3) She wanted to get me a bed mat (among other things) for my b-day (last month) so things don't slide around.... usually I buy my vehicle stuff and say, 'this is my b-day present from you....'

I have now been able to mod my truck and have squeezed in mods on my car at the same time (i guess the truck has rubbed off on her), with very minimal negative comments coming from her.

She has a BMW 1 series herself (which is a gorgeous car. Slate grey on red seats).
Now she wants a Wrangler Sahara Unlimited to mod up....
The 'Mod Bug' has bitten her.
She is now telling me whats wheels I can't get because that is what she will want for her wrangler that we have yet to even buy (not sure I will)....

I can go on and on about this, but this has been a pleasant surprise....

Question: What does your other half think of you and your truck?

Not sure what your other half tells you and I'd like to hear it......

While I'm sure my wife would rather me spend more money on here instead of the truck, she's very supportive and likes it(or at least pretends to....?) and gives opinion on everything I want to do, and even helps out a lot. Even when I mentioned this weekend that I'd like to turbo my truck she thought it was a good idea.

We were talking this weekend and are going to pick up a couple dirtbikes to have fun with, and then she mentioned she wants to pick up a cheap jeep wrangler and fix it up a little and take it out and have some fun with it. That was pretty shocking to me lol. So needless to say we are on the hunt for a couple dirtbikes and an old cheap wrangler lol.

Funny thing, is my wife has mentioned as well to get bikes, so we can ride together. The only thing is we got 2 young kids, so that will have to wait a bit.
Exactly as you, she too mentioned about a wrangler.

Just too funny!
