You know you drive an EX when your importing your new EX into Canada and the Customs agent says "Why do you need a truck this big?"

You know you drive an EX when you pull up to the pump on E and tell the girl to fill it your just going across the street to grab a coffee. When you come back she is still standing there pumping and smiles shaking her head.

True stories.

I know this is a older thread but i thought i might add my two cents on it you know when you drive an EX when you can change your fuel filter while filling up and your glad an oil field semi bent the guards for the pumps so you have something comfy to prop yourself up on when your filling up but i do love these big old girls

You do not care when a lifted Suburban fills the parking spot before you at the drive in movies. You can still see the bottom of the screen from the back row.

Recently, My wife and I took our kids to the Route 66 drive-in in Carthage, Mo. I have a Yakima Megawarrior Rack on top and was told by the owner and law enforcement that was there, that I had to go to the very back spaces because the Ex being so big.

The kids wanted to lay in the basket and I agreed, being there first time ever to a drive-in and remembering when I was a kid myself! The deputies tried to tell us that the kids would have to get down from the top. I remarked how being the tallest vehicle there and already in the back row that it shouldn't matter where the kids decided to watch the movie, that it would be better than a blanket on the ground! They called the Supervisor, He came over and after noticing the age of the kids, the megawarrior rack and that we were in the back row already, turned and said they could stay! Later my wife and I went to the concession stand and looking to the back of the drive-in past vans, trucks and suburbans you could still clearly see the Ex!

When we go to the local baseball games they try to tell us we can't park there because we take up too much space. I got mad and went to the next attendant and said "He asked us to ask you where to park. Then she parked us and I told the other dude "Thanks Abu." My wife was mad. I said we got parked right?

True story; I wanted to rent a space in a lot one time by the month but when she saw the truck she said "I will have to charge you double because that is like 2 cars"........kinda reminds me of the airlines.

This is soo true! I found a station that caters to tractor trailers and uses a 1" ID hose and filler and an awesome pump and it fills the 44 gallon tank in a 10th of the time the crappy little standard 3/4" slow pumps do the job.

Shoot, that's nothing. I fit one in the back of a Chevy Metro once. :-) Granted I didn't have room for the family.
