DALLAS - - A pickup former President George W. Bush used on his Central Texas ranch will be auctioned off to benefit a program dedicated to assisting U.S. military families.

The Barrett-Jackson auction house in Scottsdale, Ariz., says the 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch 4-by-4 SuperCrew will be offered Jan. 19, with all proceeds going to the Fisher House Foundation.

The truck's right airbag panel is signed by Bush. The buyer will also get a video showing Bush autographing the truck and driving around the ranch near Crawford, about two hours south of Dallas.

Bush, who left office in 2009, said in the news release, "I haven't driven on a street in many, many years, but I have been able to drive this truck on my ranch."
