    I love this!

    A few examples:

    statement: "hey ur truck's dirty"
    response: "it's ok, it's a truck"

    quesiton: "are u going to fix those scratches/dents?"
    response: "no, it's a truck"

    question: "should I take my muddy boots off before I hop in?"
    response: "no, it's ok. It's a truck"

    etc.

    While I really take care of my truck for the most part, sometimes you just gotta say "f*** it, it's a truck".

    i cant begin to tell you how many times i have said that... especially when its another guy or gal saying that same statement... i have turned a lot of people away from off roading due to the fact they see what i like to do... and my favorite thing is all these guys who dont want to go ARE ALL 4X !!!!

    A cool dude saw me get outta my truck... mind you he was in a bad ass EJS... "Its looks like you use you truck" i gladly replied "YOUR DAMN STRAIGHT I DO" with a smile on my face...:D:D

    I like to clean it up once I'm back in town because it's also my daily driver, but I'm not maintaining a "show car" finish because... well you know.

    Ok what if your girlfriends friend writes on your truck when there's dirt or dust on it. And scratches the clear coat. And when you yell at them to stop they respond with "its just a truck" I'm all for dents scratches and dings but only if I cause them. Someone else and it's like [​IMG]
