So you cut all the stamped brand logos out of your vehicle's sheet metal?
I mean, I'm pretty good at autobody and could do it, but sure seems like a large task with diminishing returns.
Or more succinctly to your jackass, leading responses, it's not even my truck and I do get paid to drive a free truck....
It could say "I like d!cks" on the back of it and it would still be hard for me to turn down a roughly $30k/year benefit....Fortunately it says Chevy, so I don't have to be embarrassed to realize the gain!

He!!, for 'bout 20 years, 95% of my company rigs were Fords, and I had a saying "Only good Ford is a free Ford!" lol (Sorry Fish [emoticon])


No, I don't pay extra not to advertise. But I have repaired a bent tailgate by replacing the Ford stamped piece with steel left over from flooring a material bed. Leaked no more than factory, but was a little heavy to close.
But if I don't wear a tee shirt advertising a company unless it is in a list of sponsors in smaller letters than a event I believe in.
And I never considered any of my company trucks "Free" Tools, better take care of them. But at 1 time I had Fords, class 1 for personal, class 3,5,7 and 8 plus a old Pete for work, I had to ask why all the emblems where ovals. Guess it dates back to school when teacher would circle my mistakes.

I cannot, in fact confirmed it IS one of our employees....embarrassing enough as that is, at least he's Canadian....


Maybe you should seek this person out and find out if he actually got his hands on one of the concept trucks, or they were such fans of it that they badged their F150 as such.

The Atlas was Fords 2013 concept truck revealed at the 2013 NAIAS in Detroit. So probably not as whacky of a situation as you think.

F150 Atlas


No, it's pretty wacky...and I don't actually care if it is an early release truck (Ford's marketing as a "concept" vehicle was pretty weak. It was merely an early release or preview of the new model. Hardly fits the traditional definition of a concept vehicle).

This post was just a funny jab at the Ford guys here...who call me part of the Ram Mafia or whatever.


Well I'm Canadian and own a Ram, so not sure what that makes me! [emoticon]

I believe I've seen a couple of those F-150's before and also wondered WTF at the time.


2013 Ram 3500 Megacab DRW Laramie 4x4, 6.7L Cummins, G56, 3.73, Maximum Steel, black lthr, B&W RVK3670 hitch, Retrax, Linex, and a bunch of options incl. cargo camera

You drive a Dodge, so it’s cool…lol!

And Scooby, you’re trying too hard… love the “they circled the problem” joke though. Oldie but a goodie.
