    How often do you use your truck for hauling more than you would want to carry in a car or towing? It seems like nobody has a truck so I'm always helping people, and was wondering, I use mine at least once a week. Also if you wat include what and specific on how often

    Yeah, the short bed is kind of annoying, but we have a trailer I can use if it need be

    I ONLY use my truck as a truck. Otherwise, I drive my roommate's 30mpg ford escort, or my motorcycle.

    The only time I use my truck is to haul stuff, be a recovery vehicle for my friends, or to go wheeling (once a month or more).

    ...as well as being a guy who drives a truck. Which I think you'll all agree is a crucial component of being a truck owner.

    I use my truck as a truck all the time, everyday. And I live in a very rural area w/lots of gnarly muddy roads, so it is hardly ever clean and gets to 4x4 quite often:D

    it hauls:
    surfboards & people a few times a week
    dirt and plants daily (I teach gardening @ local school)
    lumber/building supplies
    rubbish to the landfill weekly (we have to haul our own)
    other people's crap...and my crap...

    I wished I used my truck more for a truck.:eek: I normally haul trash or garbage to the dump every once in a while. Or if I go into town and go shopping I'll throw some bags in the back. Summer time it gets used more for camping and fishing when I get the time.:cool:
