Working Man's Trucks Let's See 'Em!

In all respect to you LT guys, the lifted ones, the lowered ones, I figured I'd start a thread for the Working Class Heroes out there who are using their Tacomas for what they were meant for...work!
Someday I hope to reward my truck with making her my Toy, but right now, with a kid in college and bills that don't pay themselves, I rely on my truck to bring in the checks. She has never let me down, did everything I ever asked of her with no complaints and on top of that, dayum if she doesn't make me look good!
So what do you do for a living and post some pics of your Tacoma working hard!

I do landscaping and anything that gets a check through the door.

Here's mine with a baby Bobcat on the way to the job.

Estimate load weight with cap and shell about 3500 lbs with airbags, AAL and Billie 5100's, I don't recommend trying this at home, I am a deranged professional

My work truck only a few weeks old, still has the dealer plates on it. I service and sell fire extinguishers

I've wondered how these trucks do hauling a skid steer. Do you know the weight of yours off hand?

It's a rental but I think the trailer was 1200 and the Bobcat was 3200? Could be wrong though.

I drive a lot, I figured at some point the odds are good I may need this one day, didn't want no wussy 2.5's or 5's, this has almost 30 seconds of runtime, imo worth the extra weight and size

1st gen mighty mouse gotta represent!

Some beastly trucks posted on here! Very nice!!

I wouldn't say I purchased my..what I call.."mighty mouse" 1st gen double cab primarily as a working man's truck but I did haul 450 sq ft worth of laminant flooring + rolls of under-layer pads with ease today from Lowe's that included driving the entire family home. I used a 10% Lowe's coupon plus they had a pretty sweet sale on flooring, got everything under $500 out the door. It was a hefty load of fake wood but the taco pulled everyone and everything home without hesitation! With the wife and I plus the 2 kids filling up the entire cab, I think that is pretty impressive. I just LOVE the utility and off road joyfulness our tacos bring!
