It's the largest vehicle in a parking lot.

The police let you through the 2 foot deep puddles that seem like lakes to all the other vehicles that are being turned around.

You don't ever wonder if your Ex can pull that tree out of the woods.

Environmentalists start to rag on you about your Excursion and you just smile.

When you have to set aside time on the weekends to pull Prius and Smart Cars from your grille.

You know you are driving an Excursion when, you get dirty-judgement-looks of disdain from Prius owners. That's when I wish I had a custom tune with a smoke setting

When the local fire company tries to buy it off you to be their new brush truck.

When PETA sues you for cruelty to animals.

You know you drive an Excursion when the truck you are pulling out of the snow has a Peterbuilt emblem on the hood, a 525 Cummins under the hood, a 13 speed, and the driver says "Wow! I didn't think you would be able to get me out. Thanks!"

You know you're driving a diesel Excursion when a standard oil change costs you $120+, synthetic costs you $200.

You know you're driving an Excursion when you're yard saleing, find that great full sized couch, 2 matching chairs, and twin end tables for your garage furnature, and say "I don't need to come back, I'll just toss it in the back."

You know you're driving an Excursion when you can step out into the parking lot of the largest mall in the country(1), on black friday, make a 2 second sweep, and say "Ah, there it is."

You know when you're driving an Excursion when you curse the $100 limit on fuel pumps, because it only gives you 3/4 tank.

I used to hate that before I started making my own. Still is a pain when making long trips...
