Do you park it in a garage?

Hi all,

Great forum. I'm considering on an '08 lariat swb fx4 but its about 10 inches too long for my garage. I hate the fact that I would have to park on the driveway every day/night especially since I want a black one. Do most of you all keep your trucks parked outside?

Good luck on parking it...For those of you that cant fit it in the garage, I guess outside is your only other option..or you could always build a covered area for it off to the side.

Go Greyhound, and leave your luggage with us. *maybe not intentionally*

Mine is parked out side, and is also black. It's not that bad really. I think a big factor is whether or not you park under a lot of trees. Between pollen and bird poop it can be difficult, but fortunately my spot is away from the overhanging trees. It does get hot in the sun, but not as badly as you'd think.

My truck sits outside mostly because it is too tall, and because I park my nova in the center of the garage

keep my 83 conv stang, 2008 f-250 and my 2000 f-150 and hustler-Z mower in my 3 vech detached garage, took me 20 years of saving to get to this point!! and had to do some serious arranging to get it all to fit. I think the dude who owned the place b 4 us had garage built for boats. 40x40 and real high.
