    Was wondering what most use their truck for.

    Some leave it stock , maybe add a radio or cover, and use it as a utility truck for a home, toy towing etc
    Others may only use it as a modded truck for week end warrior off roading
    Other may mod heavily bot don't want to take it off road.
    Still other may do both.

    yeah mostly daily driving but whenever any of my friends or family have a problem my truck can handle it

    i really want full skid plates and huge bumpers but first you need the money up front then you kinda need it to get you down the road in fuel

    i was so close to gettin 33's and i really surprised myself when i figured after the gas mileage and beating out the fenders just wasnt worth it right now so i stuck with the 31's. which work just fine

    theres always later

    Does Plasti-Dip count as a mod ?
    Daily driver, mild off road (stock), utility. It's a truck. It has 4 wheel drive and off road suspension. That's it's intended purpose.
