My wife loves to ride in my truck, and even prefers to take it on most trips... but she refuses to drive it. I guess the ride height and the width spooks her. Her vehicle is a Ford Escape, so she is used to something much smaller.

My (then) wife walked into the dealer and bought the first Ram 1500 in 2003, before that she drove a lifted 1988 suburban on steroids, called it her minivan. My (now x wife) calls me all the time asking to borrow the 2009. Count your blessings, you have a woman that you still love more than your truck after 35 years of marrage and you know when you go out to your driveway, your truck will still be there lol.

Trust me you should not be happier, they barrow our trucks and are hard on them, get them scratched up and bring them back with an empty tank. I love my wife but if she wouldn’t drive my truck I would be that happiest man in the world. All it means for you is that you need to drive everywhere, don’t let her get the idea in her head that she needs to drive when you are on vacation and such. In my house the truck is the primary means of transportation and I always drive we leave her car at home. It would never be an option for me to get in it and drive any where other then the grocery store and I only do that when she parks behind me. You are a lucky man and I am jealous.

Not saying all women, but majority, seem to live in fear of big things and seem to lack the dynamic of driving a larger vehicle.
On topic, I had eye surgery and had to let my roommate drive my ram and withing 5 minutes she took the passenger side mirror out. She was lucky that I had to keep my eyes closed and couldn't see anything let alone her.... At least she drove straight to the dealership and ordered a new mirror. She was more careful after that.

My wife loves driving my truck. She's only 5 feet tall so she likes being able to see over everything. She doesn't seem to mind the size...but then she drives and Expedition herself. My diesel was another story. She'd drive it but she didn't love it. She sideswiped a guardrail with it once though so that might have been part of it.

Sorry for the venting!

I changed the photos.
My wife won't drive the truck. I've tried to get her to drive it but it's a no-go. She said she would in a pinch but has no desire until then. I think it's the size of the truck or maybe it's me being a shotgun driver that turns her off.
