    you know that joke?

    what is the difference between a work truck and a 4x4 truck?

    answer: there are some places you wont take a 4x4.

    i have a work truck. i speed alittle bit, but i'm very tame. it's pretty high profile, visually.

    My company ride is an 04 basic model Tacoma 2.4 5speed. I could have done worse I guess!:turtleride:

    I don't drive it that hard, I actually like the people I work for.

    My last job was a different story. Had a few Ford Rangers, and an E150 van. After I had been there for a few years, I realized that despite there being only one guy with more seniority, I was always getting the hand-me-down trucks. After that, I basically beat the crap out of all of them! I was constantly butting heads with my supervisor and I loved watching his face when he got those repair bills.:D When he accused me of beating his truck, I would point out that said truck had 150K on it when I got it and that the new guy was driving the truck with 30k on it.
