A have to say, after watching Top Gear withthe truck on the road course track, I was actually impressed- I had some real doubts looking at the general specs on the truck, but it did hold to the track alot better than i (and i think the hosts) even thought it would!

I didn't think much about it and though the truck was one of those, it's alot of hype,but yah after watching what they put that truck through.The thing's awesome,Ford did a awesome job on that truck.

Around here there aren't many places you could use it,but I bet it would be fun in the dessert and in the sand dunes.

Considering the truck was NOT designed or tuned for street performance it did do rather well.

The American rip-off of Top Gear (the show) is a sad, sad effort though.

I think the Bowler would win by a landslide. That's like putting a Ford GT up against an Indy car
