    I can't stand the ignorance of others. I hate it being called a Donco.

    I've heard it so much, I have accidentally called it a Bronco a time or two.

    I just sold my Blazer and bought a Suburban. Sometimes I call the Sub a "the Blazer". Opps.

    personally i hate it when people call my truck "the burb", if you're gonna shorten the name, call it "the sub". (it sounds cooler) what really gets me mad is when people say " is that a four wheel drive?" don't you just wanna slap them?

    people that get good mileage aren't having any fun!

    I guess some people just dont know ANYTHING about cars.. I get asked "is that 4wd??" when standing right infront of my lifted truck. someday im gonna answer: nah I just carry a spare dana44 under there for my health... now if it was IFS 4wd, I might understand. but come on. the hubs, lift, axle, and t-case shifter dont GIVE IT AWAY? maybe Ill enter the next offroad competition as a 2wd and see if anyone notices..

    my friends know its 4wd and to annoy me they call it a bronco, but most of them thought that shift was the tranny shifter and it was stick shift. We were driving once and my friends like have you been in first gear this whole time, im like no thats the fourwheel drive, its automatic. peoples ignorance is quite amazing sometimes.
